Sakai 12 - Rich-Text Editor (CKEditor): What is the Rich Text Editor?

 

What is the rich-text editor (CKEditor)?

In most areas of the system where text can be entered, you can control the appearance of your text using the rich-text editor, sometimes called a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor. The rich-text toolbar has icons for editing and formatting your text. You may use the rich text editor to include images, links, audio and video as well as text.

Important: Unlike Gmail, Google Docs, and other Google apps, the rich-text editor in Sakai does not automatically save your work. To avoid losing your work, we recommend that you first compose and save it elsewhere. Then paste your text into the rich-text editor, and format it as needed.

The rich-text editor is based on an open-source application called CKEditor. For more information on the CKEditor, you may also refer to the CKEditor 4 Documentation Site.
