Bumpity bump BUMP!
Can we PLEASE get the broken "plain" text editor backed out to something with the brains of a nematode, which can at least recognize carriage returns as end-of-paragraph markers?!?
Here is the latest example of the stupidity this broken editor engenders: https://www.instructables.com/community/Cell-phone-repeater-for-my-home/. That user clearly put a fair amount of effort into composing a response full of helpful content, Web links, and so on. But it's all jumbled up together :-(
I've already proposed the idea of simply bringing up the Rich Editor but with the buttons hidden away (the little triangle icon) until the user decides they need them. That was met with stony silence. I'm sure Staff know more about what's going on behind the scenes to come up with a better solution.
Just FYI, with the currently broken "plain" editor, you (paid users) can use raw HTML markup; for example, put <P> at the beginning of each paragraph.
It seems like a pain, I guess, but I've been doing raw HTML for 20 years now, so for me it's pretty easy.
