Can you use keyboard shortcuts in WYSIWYG fields?
General markdown syntax and some keyboard shortcuts work in Coursedog’s WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) text box.
However, there aren’t keyboard shortcuts available for all of the tools displayed in the WYSIWYG toolbar.
Shortcuts that work in our WYSIWYG editor include:
Undo – Cmd+Z (Mac), Ctrl+Z (PC)
Redo – Cmd+Shift+Z (Mac), Ctrl+Y (PC)
Bold – Cmd+B (Mac), Ctrl+B (PC)
Ital – Cmd+I (Mac), Ctrl+I (PC)
Underline – Cmd+U (Mac), Ctrl + U (PC)
Select All Text – Cmd+A (Mac), Ctrl+A (PC)
Copy Text – Cmd+C (Mac), Ctrl+C (PC)
Cut Text – Cmd+X (Mac), Ctrl+X (PC)
Paste Text – Cmd+V (Mac), Ctrl+V (PC)
Horizontal Line – - - -
Numbered List – New line starting with “1.”
Bulleted List –
New line starting with “*” + (Space bar)
With a bulleted list, hit “Tab” on a line to increase the indent (you can increase the indentation by one more indent than the previous line).
Quote – New line starting with “>” + (Space bar)
Header Level 1 – Ctrl+Shift+1
Header Level 2 – Ctrl+Shift+2
Header Level 3 – Ctrl+Shift+3
Can I define my own list levels and list types?
Yes, the Coursedog WYSIWYG editor supports multiple forms of list levels, including: Dot/open circle/square, upper case letters, lowercase letters, upper case Roman numerals, lower case Roman numerals, and numbers.
To create a standard bulleted list, highlight the text you wish to turn into a list and select the “the unordered list” option within the WYSIWYG; the open circle and square fall under the bullet as different levels after indenting.
You can access the different list styles by clicking on the bulleted list icon at the top of the WYSIWYG editor (shown below).
What is the underlying format used for your WYSIWYG editor?
The underlying format is a HTML/JSON content tree.
Our WYSIWYG editor was built using a toolkit for building rich text editors; RTF content pasted into our WYSIWYG editor should retain most of its formatting.
