The reply these people gave me this morning in my email is not satisfactory. Some of us will never accept the damned block editor. the Real editor is a part of the block editor so they say. Whatever. Should the Real editor ever become unavailable, this blog will be gone, and so will I.
We know this is frustrating for you and many others. It’s hard to start over again once you’ve become accustomed to specific software! The reality is that each editor we keep around takes resources to maintain. With the continual development and improvements that have been made to the new WordPress block editor, it no longer makes sense for us to maintain three separate editors. We’re aware that creating great software will never make every person happy. We’re doing our best to choose the best path between many good options, weighing all of the inevitable trade-offs that come from making changes, listening, shipping, and then doing it all over again.
If there is a particular aspect of the new editor you are struggling or find frustrating in particular please let me know, we’d love to assist you further with getting to know the new editor as you continue working on your site.
