I think I'll stick with my v12 that I still use. :-)


Yeah, only you left off the satanic experience of inserting an image with its 100 filthy stylistic growths.

Yeah, v12 was GREAT. I loved it. Sadly, LiveWriter is part of LIVE... so it looks like it's pretty much impossible to get an older version.

And... I would have shown MUCH more of what makes this tool absurdly infuriating.. but I was afraid I'd end up cursing on camera... ;)


Why not just turn off "Edit with Theme" which would then give you the same as the normal view did.


Wow, how vague was I in that last comment... Sorry, to turn off edit with theme go to Edit > Edit using Theme. Or use Ctrl+F11.

PS, did you ping @jcheng or @brandonturner at all about this? If not, you definitely should, cos they would be very interested in seeing this so that it can get fixed.

I am sorry you are having problems with Windows Live Writer, these are usually theme related. If you want you to go back to normal video. Try doing Control+F11 or View > Uncheck 'Edit using themes'.

Also, if you email me your theme from C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Windows Live Writer\blogtemplates I would love to take a look at it and figure out what is causing Windows Live Writer to act so funny. I have seen and fixed similar problems before.

Once again, I am sorry you are having trouble, normal video should still work for you though.

Feel free to contact me at bturner@microsoft.com or @BrandonTurner on twitter.



Cool, glad that worked. Ask and ye shall find :D
