You speak much wisdom and truth, Quasimodo. Indeed, the workarounds are not really THAT MUCH work, if I have the time to use them. That’s what I do at night, when I have more than five minutes at a time to read.
I hope I didn’t sound like I was whining or complaining. I thought maybe there was some functionality I was unaware of (I really haven’t been on Medium much the last 6 months or so) but I see now that it’s an issue across the board. :)
