The response time is painfully slow; I feel like we were back in dial-up modem world.
Simple functions like changing font size are mishandled. E.g. switching from 13 to 14 to 15 made not a difference in the editing window to my eyes. That's why yesterday's post looked so weird.
If you highlight several paragraphs of text, then change font size, while nothing noticable happens, now only the first paragraph is highlighted, implying that whatever changed was only applied to the first paragraph.
The automatic thumbnail generated by Typepad looks really poor, as Derek pointed out here. The resolution is horrible; besides, the file size can be 3x that of a much larger, much clearer original image!
Trying to move around an image within the editing window has become impossible. In addition, a blank space is now placed at the position where the image is inserted in the HTML where in the past, no extra space is inserted. As a result, extra spaces show up in strange places.
BUT THERE IS MORE! HERE IS THE HOWLER!
The HTML interface is now completely useless. Look at the image below. Typepad decided to eliminate all line breaks so the entire HTML now shows up in one big paragraph, making it impossible to edit at all.
This is how a previously great company shoots itself in its foot.
I'm open to suggestions for where I should move the blog to... (Assuming you can get the commenting function to work, because I just failed multiple times)
