Recalling that the same problem existed in 1.3 - and was resolved - I still have hopes of switching to 1.9. Here's what frustrates me about the switch. Not enough white space around a graphic inserted into the body of text in a post.
When this is published in the 1.9 version of the theme, the text abutting the graphic is squeezed tightly against the image. We had this problem with 1.3 and a fix was eventually built-in. I hope the developers will do the same with 1.9.
Any suggestions for a workaround? I'd like to go back to trying 1.9. I do like the new look - especially the sans serif font.
