Live Writer

I have been using Live Writer for a while now and it is pretty good.  The latest version has some good improvements like a preview pane and the ability to see and work with the source.

Major gripe is that I can’t set a default font.  It keeps reverting to Verdana which I hate.

One issue I have seen is that when publishing it hangs occasionally and I lose the post. Not sure if its Live Writer or my broad band.  Quick fix is to always manually save a draft before publishing.  At least you don’t have to re-write if it goes wrong.

Overall I’m pretty happy with Live Writer.

    Richard, are you using any plugins for code formatting for PowerShell samples?

    Not at the moment. I’m looking for a good one though. I’m thinking of trying the way shown on the PowerShell Team blog to copy colourised code out of ISE
