Throughout the community, you have many editing opportunities available to you. You can use either the plain text editor or the rich text editor. You can configure your experience to change the editor for all content areas by changing your site settings (click the gear under your name/avatar picture, go to the advanced options). 

The rich text editor includes a toolbar with a good number of editing options and an area into which you can add content.

  • Pressing Tab while in a table cell will take you to the next horizontal column cell or row.
  • Pressing Shift/Tab will create an outdent in numbered or bulleted lists.
  • When you create a link in the editor, it is automatically converted to a hyperlink. For example, if you enter "Google", it becomes a live link. The rich text editor utilizes Undo and Redo buttons in the GUI. (But the Ctrl+Z or Ctrl+Y keyboard shortcuts still work.)
