However, in a number of ways, the new editor is not friendly to copying and pasting from my workshop page.
I agree and here is another minor issue (it is minor).
When creating a page and when you go to the old editor, it detaches it from whatever page you were trying to add to.
For example, if I wanted to add a route page to a mountain page, and clicked old editor, when I finish the page it will no longer be attached. It also detaches all the photo coordinates unless you go back to the page, and reattach it to the mountain page before proceeding.
The only way I've found around this is to create a blank page by way of the new editor and then go back in and open and edit it in the old editor. It is a minor problem, but kind of a pain since it requires extra steps and since it makes the page appear on "What's New" too early.
As mentioned, it's still a pretty minor problem.
Table's will still be supported fully and will probably be supported until the end of the internet.
Josh, will we still be able to build tables in html?
I hope so. The reason I like html tables rather than the ones in the new editor is that I can quickly build them in excel by clicking and dragging, something you can't do in the new editor.
Your first html table takes longer, but once the first one is built, it's much faster to create the next one and so on. In excel you can click and drag numbers, such as when I build a table that has 500 rows and want them to be numbered 1-500 in a few seconds. You can't do this in the new editor.
For example, this is a screenshot of part of the excel spreadsheet I use by simply clicking and dragging code:
