Basic Font Styling
Highlight your text and select any of these icons to apply Bold, Italic, Underlined, or Strikethrough text.
HINT: Just like a word processor, you can also use keyboard quick commands to apply these styles:
- Bold: Windows "cntrl+B; Mac "command+B"
- Italic: Windows "cntrl+I; Mac "command+I"
- Underline: Windows "cntrl+U; Mac "command+U"
Block Style Dropdown
From the Block Element drop-down list, you can apply standard HTML block elements the article. The default block element is Paragraph.
Note: The page header, generated by an Article or Item Title, will always be set to Heading 1 (H1). The different Heading elements should only be used to organize text on the page. Heading 2 elments should be used as a section header. Heading 3 or 4 are used for sub-headers. The use of appropriate headings is essential for SEO.
Ordered and Unordered Lists
Ordered lists (numerical lists) and unordered lists (bullet points) can be created by using these icons. If you are creating an unordered list, please refer to the Note section below.
Paste as Plain Text
Paste as Plain Text should always be used when you are pasting text from another application into the editor. This is because Word docs and other applications will often use a different font than the website is using, or different styles, and by pasting directly into the editor, you will be bringing those styles into the article. This will cause your text to be inconsistent with the website's copy.
Once you click on this button, you can paste your text into the pop-up box and the extraneous styles will be stripped. Click Insert to add your text to the editor, and use the Character Styles buttons (bold, italic, or underlined) to apply where necessary.
