New Lines Error In Blogger Post-Editor

A quick update on an error reported by many Bloggers in the Blogger post-editor:

In the recently updated Blogger post-editor, you might have noticed a delay/lag in the loading time of the post-editor, with a loading image in the center like this:


While updating the post-editor, the Blogger team has set the default settings of "Edit HTML settings" under "Post Options" to "Ignore newlines".
Due to this, bloggers who use Edit HTML instead of Compose mode to write posts, are facing problems in separating new lines.
So follow these simple instructions to make things easy again.
Edit any of your previous posts, and at the bottom of the post-editor frame, click on the link "Post Options" to expand it.

Now under "Edit HTML Settings", select the radio button "Convert newlines to <br />s", then click on save now or publish post button.

Now, this option will be saved for your account and you need not change this setting every time you write a new post. Of course you can undo this change anytime you want.

@Reza and Beben

I have already added a demo in that static pages post: Be a Guest Author On BloggerStop

@Kashif
It's ok to use compose mode, but I suggest you to check your post once in edit html mode too, as in compose mode some extra code is added too.
For ex. if you have three paragraphs, and apply left/justify alignment or any color to the text, then this is applied separately to all the three paragraphs, whereas if you do it manually in the "edit HTML" mode, then you can just add a single div/span tag to all the three paras at the same time.
