No more distractions, icons, and toolbars cluttering your screen. Just a nice clean sheet of “paper.” 😉
The Artsy Editor doesn’t leave you without some of your standard tools, either.
Artsy offers a full online demo, so you can get a real feel for how it functions.
I wish more WordPress plugins offered this, especially when it’s a premium plugin!
The first thing you’ll notice when you start a new post, is the new tab. In addition to the usual Visual and HTML tab, you now have an Artsy tab:
When you click on the Artsy tab, you’re launched into the Artsy Editor – aka: Writing bliss!
Nice and clean!
You’ll notice a small button in the upper-right, this is where you find your basic Publish, Save Draft, Preview, Move to Trash and HTML Mode actions:
Adding H-tags, bold, italicized, underlined, strike-through, list-types, justifications, block-quotes, and links is only a highlight away.
Simply highlight the text, and the menu pops-up automatically:
Artsy deals with adding images nicely, too, and even let’s you easily add iframe/object code:
- Drag-and-drop to upload images.
- Drag corners to resize images
- Sit doesn’t strip iframe/object code.

As for the future of this plugin, it is uncertain.
WordPress 3.2 Beta 2 includes:
Distraction-free Writing – The visual editor’s full-screen experience has gotten a major overhaul, and is now available from HTML mode, too.
Only time will tell if this makes it to the final release of WordPress 3.2, and we don’t know what features it will include.
If you’re serious about distraction-free writing, I would jump on this plugin. It’s done well, while at the same time, doesn’t leave you without the essential tools you need while writing a post.
For the price of a few Starbucks frappuccinos, the Artsy Editor is certainly worth it.
