Visual Editor Shows Several Align Right Images in the same Line

    As you can see in the attached picture, we have some continuing issues with the visual editor in wordpress.

    In this case, the two images are correctly displayed in the output (scroll to the right). Both images have an align right.

    But the WP Visual Editor is completely distorted, it displays both images on the same line, one left, one right, despite the align right for both images.

    Is there any remedy for this behaviour, like increasing the width of the Visual Editor (how?).

    Is it a bug: The Visual Editor should not show images with an align right in the same line?

    Is the bug a wordpress or a Graphene bug?

    Here another distorsion with which I am fighting:

    Since I changed the Graphene display option column width, the Visual WP editor is not inline any more with the output as for the text.

    In the output more text is shown per line than in the Visual Editor.

    When you combine a lot of text with pictures to the right, as in the first post above, you quickly lose the linkage between text and picture inside the Visual Editor.

    Again is this a bug in WordPress, in Graphene?

    I am on the latest versions of WP and Graphene.

    The third issue I have with the visual editor is that the text is rather shown small but the images too big when compared to the WP output.

    In the picture below on the left side again the WP Visual Editor and on the right the WP output.

    My final conclusion is that

    the WP Visual Editor is only useful for editing the text and do some text formatting. But when you work with images, you must continously control how it will look like on the output, but the Visual Editor is no help at all.

    Exactly. The visual editor is not a WYSIWYG editor. It’s not a word processor.

    Not a bug, afaik, just the way it works. But you can always figure something like this out by temporarily switching to the default 2014 theme.

    Thanks

    What do you mean with the default 2014 theme?

    Do you have a suggestion for a WYSIWYG editor?

    If you are trying to figure out whether something is related to your theme or to the WordPress core, you can try switching to the default 2014 theme that WordPress ships with.

    Not really. Because of the difference in browsers, your users will still not see exactly what you see with your particular computer configuration. Placement, fonts, and colors can all be different. The only way to ensure that someone sees exactly what you see is to use a .pdf, an image file, or flash, all of which sacrifice usability, readability, and SEO for mere appearances. The web is not a word processor. At some point you have to say “close enough” and worry more about content than appearance.
