The following tools are now available to you, from left to right:

Format – this option formats the selected text as a paragraph, address, preformatted, heading or sub-heading.

Underline – to underline text.

Justified – to justify text both left and right.

Text Color – to change the color of the text.

Paste Plain Text – when clicked this button will remove the formatting from any text that is about to be pasted.

 

NB: It is advisable to use this button if you are copying text from a text editor like notepad or Microsoft Word as the system will format the text into correct html for your website. Avoid pasting text directly into The Editor.

Remove Formatting – remove all formatting from the selected text.

Custom Character – this button will open a pop up dialog box allowing you to insert custom characters such as diacritics for words like café and façade as well as various currency and legal symbols.

Undo – this reverses, or “un-does” the last thing you did in The Editor. If you hit the undo button more than once it will undo your previous actions in reverse order.

NB: You cannot undo an action once you have Updated the page or Saved it as a draft

 

Redo – this reverses the undo, or “re-does” the last thing you un-did in The Editor. So if you hit the undo button by mistake you can re-do with this button.
