How to: Use the Rich Text Editor
The below image is a typical example of the functionality available within a writable text box.
Working from left to right each function will allow you to do the following:
- Bold - Applies Bold formatting to highlighted text.
- Italic - Applies Italic formatting to highlighted text.
- Underline - Applies Italic formatting to highlighted text.
- Strike through - Applies strike through formatting to highlighted text.
- Numbered list - Create numbered lists.
- Bulleted list - Create bulleted lists.
- Increase indent - Increase the paragraph indent.
- Decrease indent - Decrease the Paragraph Indent.
- Subscript - Subscript the highlighted text. A subscript is a character that is set slightly below the normal line of type.
- Superscript - superscript the highlighted text. A Superscript is a character that is set slightly above the normal line of type.
- Headline size 1 - Format headlines to structure.
- Headline size 2 - Format headlines to structure.
- Block - Format a block of text to identify quotations. A block quotation is a quotation in a written document that is set off from the main text as a paragraph, or block of text and typically distinguished visually using indentation and a different typeface or smaller size font.
- Code - Allows you to format a block of text as a code snippet. Please note, that formatting text as a code snippet does not provide the ability to run code within Bud.
- Link - Create a hyperlink.
- Image - Inserts images into the document. Note: When adding an image, Bud will ask you to add an Alt Tag description. Every image element must contain the ALT attribute within a page’s HTML markup. It’s the first principle of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, without them a page is inaccessible. For further guidance on Adding an Alt tag, click here.
- Movie - Inserts movie/audio into the document.
While some basic HTML can be used, Rich Text views are not code views so some elements may be stripped from the view when saved.
