Issues using v 5.0 on mobile device

I am using an Android Samsung 8 phone.

Issues I've just encountered using the visual editor:

  • main editing tool bar sits at top of page, constantly scrolling up to add hyperlink, bold text, apply heading style
  • no un-do function
  • WP-para tags added to code
  • adding a new hyperlink is painful, resorted to copying and pasting existing code
  • could not bold hyperlink as text format bar hidden behind edit url field
  • can't customise hyperlink text within Add Hyperlink box when adding a new link
  • can only change publish status using quick edit via All Pages
  • can't add info to image ie Title description and Alt text
  • when adding an image block, only 12 images of my media library display
  • preview of edited published webpage does not reflect changes until page is updated (I need to see what the page looks like before publishing changes)

I really don't like v 5.0. The PC and moblie versions are cumbersome to use. Too much scrolling and first time users don't find it intuitive to use. Version was so much better!!
