Can Adobe Contribute To My Blogging?

I'm a Mac.

I mean, I'm a Mac user.

And a Blogger.

A Mac Blogger in search of the best WYSIWYG blog editor for Mac OS X that will allow me to create, edit, and manage my Wordpress blogs while online and offline.

I've been using Qumana and have been mostly pleased with it. Especially given the price (free!). I wrote about my initial experiences here. Qumana has always been a bit rough around the edges, but I have found sufficient work-arounds to justify my loyalty.

The Qumana problems came with the official 3.0 release. For some reason, the Mac version of Qumana 3.0 does not display the image dialog for me. I have submitted the bug to the Qumana team, including the Java stack backtrace showing the error, but one of the Qumana lead Mac programmers has recentely quit. I.e., I am S.O.L. and on my own.

I noticed that Adobe had recently released Adobe Contribute 4. So, I downloaded the 30-day trial (for the Mac) and decided to give it a go today.

My first impression is not great.

But, let me get some time under my belt and we'll let you know how it goes.

Stay tuned!
