What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get, or "WYSIWYG" for short, allows a familiar experience of editing a page in a word processor.
When editing a page in the WYSIWYG editor, a toolbar appears above the editing area. The WYSIWYG toolbar is customizable by administrators of your account and may offer different functionality to different users on different pages.
Icons represent every available function to the user. Clicking on any icon performs an action, either directly to the page, or to the selected text and graphics. Some icons display more options in a drop-down menu or in a pop-up window display.
The availability of a function is based on the selected items, or the location of the cursor on the page. For example, if nothing is selected, functions such as Insert Link will be grayed out, signifying that this function is not available at the moment. For the Insert Link function button to be available, the user must first select some text or a graphic.
In many cases, right-clicking offers contextual functions. For example, right-clicking within a table provides a list of available table editing and formatting functions. Additionally, commonly used control key combinations are available such as Ctrl-X, Ctrl-C, and Ctrl-V for cut, copy, and paste respectively.
