We rolled out a release today to update the HTML/Text editor that is used to post Announcements and maintain content on custom Community pages.
- Is cross-browser compatible (tested on IE 7+, FireFox, Chrome & Safari
- Is resizable
- Generally easier to use with better preview capabilities
The first bullet is particularly important in that the older editor was not compatible with some newer versions of browsers and in the case of IE, had to be run in what was called “compatability mode“. This is no longer the case and now supports Chrome and Safari (on the Mac) a well.
You’ll also notice that there is a little handle on the editor window that allows resizing (see screenshot below). Grab the handle by right-clicking the mouse and drag it to resize the editor window. This is particularly useful for large Announcements or larger custom pages.
