Content Editor

The content editor allows you to add and format text, insert equations and hyperlinks, tables, and attach different types of files to content. The editor appears throughout the system as the default editor.

The content editor or WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor is based on the industry standard TinyMCE platform. TinyMCE is a javascript-based WYSIWYG content editor that provides a stable, robust user experience. The legacy WebEQ equation editor has been replaced with a new mathML equation editor (WIRIS).

The content editor is always available to all users. UNE can control the availability of specific tools within the content editor, but users no longer need to explicitly opt in or opt out of using the content editor.

Two Views of the Content Editor
The content editor has two view modes: simple mode and advanced mode. Change the view in the upper-right corner of the content editor.

Simple Mode
The simple mode contains a minimal set of the most used text formatting functions. Click the show more ( ) function—represented by two down pointing arrows—to access more editor functions. 



Advanced Mode
The advanced mode includes every available formatting and object attachment function. Click the show less ( ) function—represented by two up pointing arrows—to view only one row of functions. 



Functions not currently available appear grayed out. For example, the functions to apply or remove a hyperlink are available only when you select text or an object in the text box.
