Editing Text

Most places in Converge allow you to format text. This is done using the text editor, otherwise known as a WYSIWYG. This includes changing the font, aligning text, highlighting, incorporating videos, images and files, and a number of other options. This article describes each of the WYSIWYG buttons.


This is this the default view, and only shows the most common buttons used:


There are more options, however. Click the toggle button to expand.


This is the expanded view:

Each button of the WYSIWYG is described below. Some buttons include a brief description or a link to an another resource with more information.


Paragraph Format - This allows you to set text style to headings, paragraph, etc.


Formats text: Bold | Italics


Puts text into a list: Bullited | Numbered


Adds a hyperlink to text | removes hyperlink from text | prevents text from automatically becoming a link.


Insert: Image | Emoticon (smileys) | Media (audio or video) | Embedded Files


Undo | Redo


Formats text: Underline | Strikethrough | Subscript | Superscript


Align text: Left | Center | Right

Paragraph Direction: Left to Right | Right to Left. This allows you to change the direction of the text, for example for languages that read right to left

Text Formatting: Cleanup Messy Code (reformats html code to be more readable - no noticeable difference unless viewing HTML code)| Remove text formatting | Paste as plain text (no formatting) | Paste from Microsoft Word (Word sometimes adds "extra" code that conflict with some web browsers. This removes the extra code when pasting)
