I tried copying text into the new editor, and the results I found were that it ended up getting quite mangled in the process. Spaces would randomly appear between words and disappear between others, line breaks would get added at seemingly random and sometimes it just felt rather awkward to have to stop editing, insert a block for say an image or tweet and continue again.

As you can see, every paragraph block has at least one instance where words have been smashed together into one, which makes for a lot of editing for longer articles

Granted, it’s perhaps not quite as bad as my article suggested, but it’s still pretty awkward none the less, especially as these issues wouldn’t have occurred with the existing post editor.
