Huzzah! Yes, after only 2 years… ! (?? :X )
I noticed this WP post: http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2013/08/05/writing-helper/ and noticed they mentioned ‘copy a post.’ aha, i thought, i can complain yet again how the flipping thing is broken. OR IS IT?
because i — of course! — double-checked by copying a post. and… zomg! it didn’t hang, it actually… loade the post contents!
now… it automatically flips you over to the visual editor, but it seems you can get back to the text editor WITHOUT losing your html codes. yes! try it!
and… if they fixed it before now… WHY DIDN’T ANYONE TELL ME!?!??!?!?!??!!!??!?!?
