Have you noticed that since WordPress version 3.5 you have to peer into a tiny Editor window space when you are trying to write your articles? I couldn’t work out why it was so hard to work on my articles, and get an overview of what I had written.
Then I realized it was the small default writing area that WordPress Visual Editor now gives you. It felt like trying to tie granny knots with one hand tied behind your back. Or like trying to peer through someone’s letter box and have a conversation, or doing keyhole surgery…or something like that. I needed to super-size my operating table into a workable space so I could be creative! Yes!
So I checked through my Theme settings to find something I could tweak. But no. Nothing there. I searched through my WordPress Dashboard Settings…no, no helpful options there either. Next I went through the options for the TinyMCE Formatting Plugin. Nothing relevant there either. So I had to do some research.
There used to be a way to control the size of your Edit Page work area when writing Posts in the WordPress View tab. No any more. But….never fear, trusty readers, I found an easy way to fix this ‘little’ problem.
Here is a screen shot of this article while I was writing it, as seen in the default Visual Tab view:

Now you can happily create your masterpieces in complete, unfettered freedom! Yes! Easy as. No excuses now! So…a short and sweet article today, for a change.
