Using the 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 has two view modes: simple mode and advanced mode and you can switch between them by clicking the expand or collapse icons in the top right-hand corner of the interface.

Simple View Mode

The simple mode contains a minimal set of the most used text formatting functions. Click the Show More ) icon to access more editor functions.

Advanced View Mode

The advanced mode includes every available formatting and object attachment function. Click the Show Less ) icon 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.
