Rich Text Editor
The Rich Text Editor Element (RTE) is basically a mini word processor for building web pages.
Most functions of the RTE will be obvious to even the most casual user of word processors such
as MS Word or WordPad. This document covers functions of the RTE that require a bit of
explanation and includes a list of useful keyboard shortcuts
Source
Use this button to toggle between the WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) and source
code mode. Source code mode shows the HMTL behind the editor and is for advanced users
only. Please note that HTML not strictly support by the RTE will be stripped out.
Style
Highlighted text can be formatted in one of four predefined styles: Secondary Header, Sub
Header, Small/Caption, and Big.
Paste From Word
Pasting a Microsoft Word document directly into the Rich Text Editor window may cause errors
because of the excess code embedded in the Word document.
Click on the Paste from Word button on the toolbar of the RTE. When the pop up window
opens, we recommend that you check both boxes: Ignore Font Face definitions and Remove
Styles definitions. Paste the Word document into the text area and then click the OK button.
Special Characters
When symbols and special characters are required, use this button on the toolbar. Using other
techniques to enter symbols such as © or accented characters such as é are unreliable.
Hyperlink
To create a hyperlink, first highlight the linking text or select an image by clicking it once before
clicking the Hyperlink button on the toolbar. The pop up window allows you to link to other
pages on the site, a URL of your choosing, any item in any of your lockers, or any staff
member’s personal page. You can also create mailto links.
