Formatting options for your Article
When creating articles, you can use our WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) editor to format your content.
- Bold: Highlight the text to apply bold formatting
- Italics: Highlight the text to apply italics
- Add a Link: Select the text you want to link, and then click the button. In the pop up window, enter the URL. When a user clicks on the link, it will open as a new window or tab.
- Code: When you select a section of text and hit the code button, it will be highlighted in blue and use a courier font
- Bulleted List
- Numbered List
- Indent: Indent a paragraph (once or multiple times) to set it off from the rest of the text.
- Pre-formatted: Use this option if you want a section of text or code set off from the rest of the article.
- Header 1
- Header 2
- Header 3
- Images/Videos: You can upload an image directly from your computer. You also have the option to embed a screenshot or video from a link. This article walks through your options.
- HTML: Edit the HTML of your article to do more advanced formatting
- Clear Formatting: This will clear all formatting in your article. This is helpful if you paste in content, and need it to be plain text.
If you apply a formatting option, like H1, but want to remove it later, you can. Simply select the text again, and click the H1 button, to remove the formatting.
- To single space between lines of text, press Shift-Enter instead of Enter.
- To "undo" hit Command-z (on Mac) or Control-z (PC).
- To paste text as plain text use Shift + Cmd + v (Mac) or Shift + Control + V (PC)
