Living without Windows Live Writer
Microsoft is not developing Windows Live Writer anymore: so users are looking for alternatives, some are described here. I’m writing a user guide online as WordPress blog posts, and Windows Live Writer is very useful as it handles images without making you do separate uploads. No other client does that… up to now: now the simple web based WordPress editor (using latest WordPress version: 3.8) supports simply dragging images say from your desktop inside a post, and no questions asked the image will be saved (as a base 64 one, as now supported in HTML5) just like your post!
So what up to now was inconvenient in the web editor as “it’s not quite as convenient as drag and dropping images directly into Windows Live Writer without accessing any dialogs” (so true!), now actually works in WordPress’ HTML editor.
