 > Are there any stats about each button's usage? I remember getting a
 report about this, but I forgot from whom.

 undo and redo buttons.

 We have some stats on WordPress.com, but they include all the different
 editors we have so they're kind of hard to extract... What information are
 you specifically interested in finding out? Bold, italic, and links are
 generally highest, with lists and blockquotes next. Center and left
 alignment are also relatively high, but it's hard to know whether people
 are using that for text or for images. As far as I can tell, we don't have
 information on individual headings.

 Undo/redo are relatively low, but I also think that the people who need
 those buttons most — new users, or users unconfident with tech who don't
 use keyboard shortcuts — are least likely to find them hidden in the
 kitchen sink.
