I only just realised today that there are some undocumented features available in the Wordpress visual editor. Nothing too exciting but they do improve over the base functionality.
The added features include:
- Text styles
- Full paragaph alignment
- Text coloring
- Two varieties of paste (text and Word)
- Formatting removal
- Code cleanup
- Custom character insertion
You can open up these advanced features by using the following key commands.
- Windows Firefox: Alt+Shift+V (Firefox)
- Windows Internet Explorer: Alt+V (Internet Explorer)
- Mac OS X Firefox: Ctrl+V
Make sure you have the visual editor enabled in your user profile otherwise pressing those keys won’t do anything.
I’ve only just moved back to the Wordpress visual editor after having endured a rather catastrophic incident with Windows Live Writer. It has somehow corrupted over 40 draft posts that I had saved. As you can imagine it has left me a little annoyed. I guess the lesson there is don’t trust Microsoft beta software.
