It would be awesome to be able to have the convenience of some of the Fancy Editor options with the versatility of using normal html commands.
I love being able to embed an external image with a simple [img][/img] or have a
link be clickable by just pasting it in. But I also love being able to
click the insert image button to insert my own media very conveniently
and easily without having to find the image links in my media.
Unfortunately I find myself constantly switching back and forth between
having it enabled and disabled to suit the post I'm making, as each has distinct advantages and disadvantages.
My suggestion would be to make an updated editor that is a hybrid between the two that incorporates everything awesome between the two or to just have a button on the reply window for a quick switch between the two when replying to a thread without having to go into account settings.
