There are several cool features right in the text editor that everyone writing with WordPress should use. I’m getting right to the point so you can find and use these handy features immediately!


The first one is the “Paste as text button”. Use this when you copied text from another source. The reason you want this: Text that is sourced elsewhere will have style coding in it. This button allows you to paste clean type that you can style to your liking after. Otherwise, you end up with messy styles you can’t fix unless you know how to edit html.


Distraction Free Writing Mode is exactly that. Use this when you want a clean looking editing area without all the wordpress columns and options surrounding it.
