"SAVE" is a different process than "PUBLISH" after all, you DO NOT PUBLISH A DRAFT. The automatica autosaving is insane from a user's standpoint if you make many changes to a DRAFT. Whomever thought this was a cool idea needs to read a good book on Human Factors and/or GUI design. Lot of bad assumptions in the new design and I'm SOOOOO glad that there's a return to the old design option. Switching to a new design should NOT involve the cognitive basics, and TYPEPAD continually makes bad decisions that cost me time. I just wish I had the time to switch to another service.

Yup... I see no reason for the 2nd step. Note how "blogger" has a sign-in available on the 1st page. If I save the log-in page (or stats page) as a bookmark, then I miss the "news" on the home page. Also: having stats available with the other options when I first get a list of my blogs would be helpful. As to the new editor? Pfftt.... I went and upgraded Ecto I've been so upset of how slow, wastefully designed (all that right column open), and flash pop-ups that don't work right. No time to document the problems... all in all, it's one more reason I hope to migrate away from TypePad (ongoing desire for over a year or so), but never have the time. The classic for me was the "hey, let's totally change stats and now it'll take 75 minutes instead of 5 for updating). Fine decision. Anyway, thanks for your note... too much to do to deal with TypePad eccentricities right now. Regards, Mark

Why isn't the login option available at www.typepad.com? Why the unnecessary second step to get to it? Absurd.
