The editor

The WYSIWYG editor is used whenever there is an opportunity to input free text. You’ll see text editing options, such as headings, making text bold, adding a list, a hyperlink, or an image. Basic editing functions will be displayed in a toolbar at the top of the input box. Extended functions will be displayed by clicking on the + icon on the toolbar.
