This blog post was been created in Microsoft’s Word 2013. Up until now, I’ve been using Microsoft’s Windows Live Writer very happily to do all my blogging with. However, I suspect the writing is on the wall (as it were), and Microsoft will be killing Windows Live Writer off in the not-too-distant future. So now I will probably have to get used to another tool. I’m not overly happy with using Word, but I’ll give it a try for a while.
It does seem to be a bit of a step backwards from Windows Live Writer. For example, WLW had a facility to add in a photo album, but I’m not sure that Word can do this, it only seems to deal with individual images.
It also seems to be getting confused with special characters. I’ve just opened a previous blog entry (Windows 8 “Play to” Revisted), and Word seems to think the title is:
Windows 8 “Play to” Revisited
And while Word’s template supports the WordPress Categories that I’ve set up, it doesn’t appear to support Tags in the template.
Oh gawd – now it’s gone and changed the font…
And I can’t see how I can retrieve older posts for revision, or open the pages (e.g. “About”) on my blog. I’m not impressed.
Oh well, one step forwards, two steps back – as usual.
