Just a very quick post here. I have been using, up til right now, Internet Explorer as my browser and I was having issues with Blogger to even post, not everything was showing up above the composition box so I took the plunge and downloaded Google Chrome. Well here I am posting and I can see all the functions above the composition box and the screen appears to be larger. So......if you are still using IE then I suggest you switch over to Chrome.....it loads very fast and it will take any bookmarks , passwords etc and move them over. you can set whether you want Chrome to be your Default Browser or not. I chose not to because I will still use IE for most things. Google Chrome is Free!!!!
This may be why the new Blogger is difficult to use.
Hope this new development helps you, I say Google products are designed to work with only Google as I have just learned.
Take care and back to art....
