- The “normal” windows keyboard shortcuts of Ctrl+Z (undo), Ctrl+Y (redo), and Shift+Enter (new paragraph inside of bulleted/numbered items like these) work great in WLW.
- I had a few “Recently posted” items, from failed posts still hanging around in the right sidebar. When I tried to click on them, I got an error message. Very frustrating, and I wanted them gone! If there are enough “Recently posted” items, you can just click on the More… folder link at the bottom of that section, and it opens a dialog box which gives you the option to delete them. However, after deleting a few, I closed out of that dialog box while still having more to delete. Suddenly, there was no More… folder link to click on! Grrrrrr!
The [workaround] is that you can navigate to your Documents > My Weblog Posts > Recent Posts folder.
You will find the various posts in question listed. There is an XML file called cache.xml. I edited the cache.xml file in notepad (after making a backup copy of it, of course), and then deleted the files in question. Fortunately for me, they all had the same title, with a different date and time. They were appended with, , , and . I needed the last one posted (by time). The time in the XML file corresponded, and thus I was able to delete the correct ones. Viola! No more nagging artifacts hanging around!
