Testing the Offline editor

ecuador 108
I am trying out my new offline editor, Livewriter, it’s a Windows product. Husband is a diehard “I don’t do Windows” kind of guy. However, it’s what came with my laptops and I am used to it. I
Ariel remains my favorite font, but I thought I’d see how I feltecuador 032 about Comic San MS. It’s very readable and has a flair to it, but it does take a bit of getting used to. It almost looks like my handwriting when I print. Just to spice things up a bit, I thought I would throw in the sorts of random objects that catch my attention. Marble tiles in sidewalks and rocks in the sand.

It would be an interesting sideline for me, don’t you think?ecuador 195
I think I would be good at it. This font is called Calibri.

Now the time has come to upload this post and see how it looks online.

I was especially happy with how the photos are manipulated, until I uploaded the post. It looked great in my draft not so good online. Back to the drawing board.
This font is aptly name Impact. I believe I will save it for a special occasion.

  1. Steve, that’s funny because I am really liking how LW does photos. However, I have the benefit of attending Barry’s talk at the LABC not just mucking about on my own. However, I had the weirdest thing happen yesterday when writing my post, I saved and deleted half of my post just before saving! I had been working on it for awhile and poof, into the ether with it! That’s blogging for you!

  2. I have been drafting in LiveWriter for just over a year. I do not like what it does with photographs. So, I transfer my essay to Blogger and polish it up there. So far, I like the while process. No more lost drafts when Blogger goes buggy.

  3. Leslie, I am liking Livewriter so far because it handles photos better. Comic sans is a good font in my opinion, just overused. I am sticking with ariel it’s my favorite so far.


  4. I use Livewriter when I’m having problems with Blogger and love it! 🙂

    I’m also a fan of Comic Sans, but I only use it when printing out something for personal use.

  5. Mikey, the single most common problem people have is with the inserting photos! half-fast, that is perfect!

  6. Don’t feel bad, or alone, about not being able to space your uploaded fotos to your blog. Blogger Villain got you (and me, and several others, I’m sure). Sometimes it works well, other times it doesn’t work at all, and most times, it works somewhere in the middle.

    It’s not slow and it’s not fast; it’s half-fast.

  7. Debbie, Popularity of a font is like Disney making a movie featuring oh,let’s use the example of Dalmatians. Suddenly everyone one wants one whether it’s suitable or not.So a good breed gets a bad rap because it’s not suitable to everyone. The comparison made more sense in my head than it did in print.

    Lee, on Husband’s computer all of the fonts came out times roman but the formatting came out like I intended. Thanks for the website.


  8. I love the photos.

    I can’t let our daughter, La Princesa, see you using comic sans type though. She’s a typography nut and she goes into a rant every time she sees it. Unfortunately almost all high school teachers seem to use it for their printed hand-outs.
