Website Text Editor Overview

Throughout the website, you will notice the same text editor on each page. Below we have a description of each button in the text editor. 

Bold, Italics and Underline

Just like when you're creating a document in Microsoft word or Pages, you can bold, italicize, underline and strike through words, and paragraphs.


Left, centre and right align your text.

Text Format

Utilizing advanced font settings can be a great way to break up the content on a page to make it easy to read. You can choose from the following options: Heading 1, Heading 2, Subheading 1, Subheading 2, Subheading 3, Body 1 and Body 2.

Below is an example of what the different headings would look like.

Paste as Plain Text

If you have copied text from somewhere else and it is not showing up properly on your site, there may be some hidden formatting that is also being brought in depending on where you copied the text from. To clear the unwanted formatting, click on the "Paste as text" button, paste your text and click save. You can then go back to edit the formatting the way you want. If your text is still not displaying properly, click here to see more ways to fix unwanted formatting from copying and pasting text. 


Block Quote

If you'd like to add text that stands out on a page, you can select the "Block Quote" option as an alternative to bold/italicize/underline. Below is an example of how this would be displayed. 


Bullet Point Lists

You can choose circle bullet points or a numbered list.

Indent and Outdent

To start a line of text further in from the outside margin click the indent button. If you'd like the text to go back out to the outside margin, click the outdent button.

Undo and Redo

Simple undo and redo functions.
