Insert Pictures - extra step to choose how pictures appear RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • My wife has always complained about the fact that you could only insert a single picture at a time with WL Writer.  I thought she would be very happy with the new multi insert functionality - but she doesn't like the fact that you have to choose how pictures appear (either inline or as a photo album) each time you insert them.

    It would be great to make this quicker by either allowing setting a default or just having two different menu/toolbar options...

  • Writer has always supported dragging and dropping with images. If you select multiple pictures and drag them into Writer, it will automatically insert them into your blog entry for you.

    We actually even inject that dialog when you drag and drop now(assuming there is more then 3 pictures).

    Thank you for the feedback.  We considered adding a 'Save this setting' but didn't have enough time to add it in.  I'll add it to our backlog of features.
