Popping in to see if any veteran users can give some best practices as to how they make the Text Editor work for them. I know this has been a point of contention in the past, so I'm also going to take this opportunity to ask you to upvote this update if you feel it's important (it's the best way for me to add urgency on your behalf). Go here to vote up Better WYSIWYG (Rich Text Editor)
Thanks for your help everyone!
Dedicated to your success,
