I’ve been using block editor in most of my blogs. It goes without saying that it’s a struggle transitioning from classic to block editor.
I hated it and wanted to go back to old technology.
Just as I am starting to like block editor, I get annoyed by block editor issues that seem here to stay . . . indefinitely.
Fullscreen Mode Begone
I am easily distracted even so, I want my dashboard to be accessible all the time.
Who wants their screen to look like glaring, clear coupon bond with a blinking cursor?
Not me. No sir. No mam. What’s there to do?
To exit fullscreen mode, click the three dots at the right top corner and uncheck Fullscreen mode.
All I have to do is to do this every time I have to write a post.
How convenient. One issues I have to get used to for who knows how long. Wait there are more issues I want to put out in blogosphere.
Who Needs to Add Special Characters
I do, as seldom as I treat myself to a fast food and grab a plant-based burger, onion rings, and yam fries. And root bear. With less ice. (Thinking of these while munching apples for snack.)
Where is the omega icon when I need it?
Gone. Banished to the land of no return. First there’s the default fullscreen mode, now this.
Solution 1: Use HTML Character Code.
- Search the HTML entity code a character.
- Edit the paragraph in HTML. Click ellipsis > Edit as HTML.
- Add the code.
I’m doing this for now. But do I want to waste time searching for entity code when I could do better?

Solution 2: Use a plugin.
I don’t want to use a plugin for a simple task of adding special characters. Only time and patience can tell how long can I keep my cool without using a plugin.
Selecting Words is a Nightmare
Maybe I need a new mouse. I want a Logic MX Master Wireless Mouse but don’t want to spend $100 because I am saving for an iPad Pro 11, Apple Pencil, Magic Keyboard, and iPhone SE.
It’s not a mystery to me why I love gadgets.
On the other hand, I cannot figure out why it is difficult to select words and change the format to bold. A word or letters will be left out.
But when it does, letting out heavy breath and fidgeting on my seat are all I can do.
Sometimes I want to instantly pull out my mouse. Anger management takes a lifetime to learn and plenty of opportunities to practice.
Meditation will solve the third issue and keep me from buying new gadgets. Keep calm. Keep using what I already have. Unless it’s broken
Solution: Block Editor Updates
I am patiently waiting for the next WordPress updates.
And (cross our fingers) I hope that the block editor issues I mentioned will be gone for good or have a workaround.
WordPress! Can you make my blogging life easier? Please.
I need and want to write more content as I am determined to use my idle time caused by few workdays.
What block editor issues are you experiencing? Have you found a solution?
