With so MANY other web sites hosting pictures, it makes me wonder how hard can it be? Actually mathworks.com already hosts lots of pictures, like the ones we upload to the File Exchange, so I'm wondering why there is a multi-year delay in something that should be relatively straightforward, that is, hosting images for the Answers forum.
The formatting issue is also a pain. Why can't it be just as easy as it is in a word processor such as Microsoft Word? There are weird quirks like having to have a blank line before code or bulleted lists - why??? That trips up a lot of people. Or needing to have a space or blank line before the < in a link - again, why? And why are there no options for font, font size, or font color? Can't they just buy some kind of full featured word processor to plug in that does everything Word can do? Well maybe not everything but at least the basics like formatting text? Or are we somehow stuck with some kind of free, built-in java piece of junk that is basically crippled?
Why can't it be wysiwyg like other word processors have been for years or decades? Why do we have to have a preview window at all? It shouldn't even be necessary.
