Tips when using the HTML Editor

  • The Save button used to save the content is located below the Editor window.


  • Always use the Paste from Word button to paste text from MS-Word into the Editor window. Using this technique will remove MS-Word tags that are not required. If you directly copy and paste from MS-Word the resultant HTML will not format or display correctly.


  • Don’t enable HTML Editing on complex form types documents created as Web Page View fields. Additional formatting through the editor will damage the form layout.
