    I thought they did a good job on the OG editor of representing those complex concepts with pretty awesome iconography. These are better for sure and it's a tall order to try to make an icon for some of these. Kudos deserved there.

    Maybe they're taking the approach that the users will learn it and get over it?

      Probably. I like and applaud that kind of conviction in a team, but it is extremely hard to ignore how much harder it is to USE from older versions. Like you mentioned, people will get used to it I guess.

      It does make you think though... what's the tipping point where things become too much of a barrier and your user base collapses? Now, I'm not saying this is what will happen or anything... but it does make you wonder. How far can you push something?

      What I find interesting is that it's clear they like being who they are and they also want a strong community. It's almost like their two biggest strengths are now in conflict with one another.
