Blogger In Draft's Text Editor - Improved Version Launched

Google have made a couple of improvements to the Text Editor on Blogger in Draft!

Add captions to your photos
Now you can easily add captions to the images you include in your blog posts! To add a caption, simply click on the image you've inserted, and click Add caption.

Then you can write your caption just below the image.

Expandable Edit Region
In addition to captions, we've recently added another new feature for you verbose bloggers out there. You can now expand the text area of the editor to give yourself more room as you type. To make the editor region larger, simply click the corner of the editor and drag it down. The editor window will also grow automatically as you run out of space.

Faster Video Uploading
Your time is very important to us, and we are continuously working to make your experience on Blogger fast and easy. We know that it's no fun waiting for your videos to upload, so we've recently made speed improvements to make your videos upload faster.

Look Up Words as You Compose
Google has recently added a dictionary with definitions and translations to "Blogger in Draft." Here's a quick tour of the feature and its functions.

Look up definitions: To look up the definition of a word or phrase, simply highlight it and click the dictionary icon in the editor's toolbar:

This will open the dictionary's Define tab, where you can view definitions for words and phrases across 12 languages.

Get synonyms: If you'd like to see synonyms for an English word, begin by looking up its definition as above. Then, click a hyperlinked synonym to browse to its definition, and click Insert or Replace to add the currently displayed word to your composition:

Currently, synonyms are available only in the English dictionary.

Translate: You can use the Translate tab of the dictionary to translate words and phrases between over 50 languages.

Similar to the Define tab, you can navigate translations by clicking them and can feed them back to the post by clicking Insert.

Let me know what you think of these features in the comments below, and thanks for using Blogger!
