The rich-text editor

In certain tools, 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.

Note: Pasting text into the rich-text editor should preserve most formatting, but some types of formatting, such as colored text, may need to be added manually in the editor after pasting.

Browser considerations

To ensure that the rich-text editor appears and functions properly, use an up-to-date browser; see Which browser should I use?

However, Internet Explorer is currently the only browser that supports the spellcheck feature. To use spellcheck, you must first download and install the ieSpell extension from the ieSpell download page.
