    Hi there,

    Our developers have informed me that border, margin, and %-based resizing controls will not be returning as of right now. This has been updated in the main thread:

    If you find any bugs with the update, please continue to add them here.

    Thank you!

    What a complete balls up WP. I used the border and margin tools all the time, now you’ve screwed up the look of my website. Aren’t we supposed to progress rather than regress?

    If it’s any consolation, you just picked up a follower.

    Might as well go back to working on your research, which you do so well. You won’t find any real answers here except, “Use HTML.” Wait for the next WordPress News article about the “improvements” in version 3.9. They’re not going to talk about it here. This is my thread now. (LOL. Kidding!)

    Balsamean,

    Thank you for the follow and am following your blog also. Are you having any problems with positioning of photos, since the update was made? I can insert a photo, but it shows up in a different place when published and forces me to type text above photo, instead of under the photo like I always have in the past.

    It’s an April Fools joke, right?

    @delrose Thank you for that. You actually made me LOL. I needed that after gracie’s “working as intended” message from the developers.

    @timethief quote:

    More to the point is the fact there are millions of us and the hundreds complaining on the support forums about anything a rarely give rise to any meaningful changes. I’ve seen only two reversions so far and I don’t expect to see that number increasing any time soon.

    Yep, it’s the awful truth.

    Hi NiteOwl049 Historian Extraordinaire,

    I have not seen what you’re describing. It may or may not be related to the Visual Editor Downgrade.

    We could do a step-by-step walk-through of your problem in another topic thread. Others can jump in and help, too. Get your thoughts together on exactly what you’re seeing, and post it as a new topic. Maybe “Image and Text Positioning Problem.” Let me know either here or via my Contact page.

    THIS thread is spent for any practical technical purpose. Just a playground now.

    Otherwise, I’ll be glad to try to help you by email too. Let me know.

    @niteowl049-

    Hi there,

    I tested this out and found that this can be the case depending on your theme. The post editor isn’t an exact representation of the width of your theme. For example, in my post editor I placed the image here:

    https://cloudup.com/cPbTAKJs9w7

    However, when I publish, it is still placed between those words, but the width of the post area moved the image here:

    https://cloudup.com/ccvnxiB1TuD

    The best way to see what it will look like is to Preview the post. If this is not the issue you are talking about can you please open up a new thread in the Staff Answers queue here and we will reply to you there:

    Thanks!

    I find the statement from Grace absolutely astounding:
    “Our developers have informed me that border, margin, and %-based resizing controls will not be returning as of right now. “
    What the devil …?
    Right from the beginning of this thread, WP users have been pointing out the obvious: IF IT AIN’T BROKE, DON’T FIX IT !!!!!
    You developers are bloody outrageous ! – your behaviour is that of the most arrogant of multinational corporations.
    You didn’t ask us; you didn’t warn us in advance; your perpetrated this stupid and totally destructive change on us; we told you what we think of it … and what then ? – you say via a frontperson that you have no intention of doing anything about our very large number of gripes.
    You take the cake. You also take my money (a not inconsiderable amount) and give me only (silent) lip.
    You should be ashamed.

    You can shout from the rooftops and it will make no difference. WordPress developers are tuned into WordPress.org user needs. they have always been and will always remain tuned into those folks.

    As far as the we are paying customers argument – it won’t wash. We get what we pay for. There are millions of WordPress.com bloggers and only an itty bitty minority ever squander their time creating and fueling bitchy threads over and over again and shooting messengers like Grace and Jackie.

    Grace and Jackie are doing their jobs so picking on them is like picking on bank tellers when the head officers for the bank choose to change their policies.

    Since there has been no measurable worthwhile response to any of my concerns in this thread (primarily the Advanced Editing options), I feel it’s only prudent to stop wasting my inbox space and unsubscribe from this thread.

    I’ll also be investigating alternative to WordPress, since the entire point of using it is to avoid having to hand-code my posts. I wish everyone else luck in their work to overcome this latest bassackward attempt to suck all productivity out of this web tool.

    You say that “The best way to see what it will look like is to Preview the post.” Got the margins and borders to work with coding, but the width and height changes are seen only in the visual editor, not in preview mode. So how to know what ends up being published?

    @timethief
    I had no intention of shooting Grace. If you read carefully you will see that I say “via a frontperson”.
    And as it is perfectly obvious that Grace is not a developer, I can’t imagine why you would think I was addressing her when I said “you developers”.
    Sometimes, Titi, you need to pull your head in.
    I know I do, too; but I frequently do …

    WordPress developers are tuned into WordPress.org user needs.

    Is there an advantage for self-hosted users not having those image editor features and instead picking and choosing among plugins that do those things and more? Put another way, would having those features in the global version interfere with self-hosted users’ implementations of custom configurations?

    What the devil …?

    To understand this bedevilment, go back to the original WordPress News announcement about the changes to the editor. They are “IMPROVEMENTS.” The product is better now. And, better still, it is reported that there are even more improvements coming soon, spawned by upgrading to the latest TinyMCE 4, the guts, heart and soul of the editor.

    Just gotta keep it in mind: we have an IMPROVEMENT. In time, you’ll forget how good you THOUGHT you had it before. That’s not my silly opinion. That’s what staff are telling us.

    I can’t wait to forget. Pass the Kool-Aid.

    If something is screwed up in core, and part of the editor seems to still be way messed up – someone will have a plugin that allows for instance thee adding of padding which is important to me and a feature I used all the time, there will be something done in short order to add the needed feature back in – just the facts of life

    And yes – if the % scaling is not in, I would expect that feature to be either in a new plugin or added to an existing editor plugin

    Me?? I want exact pixel count sizing & the ability to add padding on any of the four sides of an image without html coding and I also used the frame around an image – even if the frame was just a black line – I also use Windows Live Writer and it adds some sort of default frame, but that does not do much for a picture added later.
