@mokane99, The problem(s) you seem to be having is that you are trying to do things differently than RW is intended to work and you are making it harder on yourself.
Like I said before, The html stack is for writing html code manually
The Markdown stack is for writing markdown code manually
I would venture to say that a lot of users probably never use them or only occasionally.
If you want to highlight text and change its style, make it a link, change its alignment etc. you just need to use the text stack, then all those formatting options will magically work for you.
There isn’t a limit to how many stacks you can use on a page (as far as I know) so you can “go nuts” put a two column stack on add a text stack to the right 3 image stacks to the left, add a html stack if you need to paste in some html code from a shopping cart system or something, or add a markdown stack if you want a down & dirty markdown table. It’s really quite intuetive and all the tools you could possibily want are there, you just have to use the right tool in the right place.
