  • 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.

Bud Recommends

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.
