There is definitely a learning curve here.
While I’ve done a lot of technical writing, the art of Medium, and blogging in general, are still somewhat foreign to me.
I agree that your suggested enhancements would make both life, and communicating here, much easier.
I’m too new to the process to know if my experiences are a result of the mechanics of the site, or my own deficiencies. I’m hoping the process becomes easier over time.
However, I think your observations are both valued and worthwhile. Hopefully, your requests will be both noted and provoke some positive responses.
