Some Tips On Our New AR Post Editor

The buzz around the site these days is about Tiny!! tiny?? yes, tiny, what is "Tiny?"

Tiny, short for TinyMCE is the plugin used for us to create the body of our blog posts. The editor has a toolbar with all kinds of buttons for editing and formatting. The new version is very similar to the old one, but from what I've seen it works better in many ways. (albeit, there were a few hiccups to iron out that the AR Dev team has obviously been getting fixed for us)

Some of the questions I've seen on the Q&A relate to things like

How do I insert images?
How do I wrap my text around the images?
Is spell check no longer working?
How do I tag someone?

Bonus Tip: screen captures, see this post from my blog if you want more info on how to do screen captures to get images for your posts

This and other tips are demonstrated in the quick video I created this afternoon to help you over some of these hurdles!

I, for one, am very glad to see forward movement in AR development.
Thanks AR Dev team.
Onward! :)

I noticed the little enhancement a couple days ago!  I like that the spell check was included.  I use it a lot!

Good morning Craig Daniels ,

I came back to watch your video again as I've been having trouble aligning right with a photo and having the text float next to it. Its working when I align left the text floats to the right. I'm sure there will be quirks that need to be ironed out but so far I'm happy to see the upgrades AR is offering. Thank you for the tutorials.

Thanks for the quick tutorial video.  I wish we could link to cloud drives for photo like you did for the video.  For example, link to my Google Photos intead of having to download it to my computer and then upload it to AR, etc.

PS Craig Daniels , is there a way to put a buffer space around a photo like before so photos are not touching text?  I used to use 10 spaces all around. Thank you!
