Use the text editor icons to liven up your text, email invites, and email marketing experience. Here’s the range of icons you’ll see:

Text editor icons WYSIWYG

Now let’s start deciphering them all!

Text editor - bold italic underline

These three buttons are the standard buttons to make the text you’ve selected bold or italic and to underline that part of the text.

Click on the A to access more text options:

  1. The first button indicates the font size. Click to access the menu of font sizes, from extra small to extra large. The second button lets you choose the text color and the third button is for the background color (the color behind the text).
  2. Click the alignment icon to choose how the text should be aligned (left, right, centered or justified).
  3. These two icons are to format your text as an ordered or unordered list. Click on the first icon to number each new line. To replace the numbers with alpha, Greek or Roman characters, just click on the arrow for all of the options. The second icon will place a bullet point at the beginning of each line. Click on the arrow that appears next to the icon to change to a different shape.

You can also add media or variables into the text:

  1. Use the first button to add a link to the selected part of the text. The second button allows you to insert a YouTube or Vimeo video to your text. Note: Videos inserted will not work in offline mode. The smiley button gives you a range of emoticons you can choose to add.
  2. Variables – (piping variables) When you click this button, you’ll see a drop-down list of variables that you can choose to include, such as previous answers, respondent data, text from other questions or scores. Use variables to personalize the question for respondents to make your questionnaire more engaging. For example, you could add the respondent’s first name – you’ll find this field towards the bottom of the drop-down list. 

Just another few icons and you’ll be fully informed about the text editor!

Use the first button to clear the formatting of the text. You might want to use this when you have copied your text from another document. 

Click the <> for the code view. Now you can view the HTML code of the text, and edit as you wish.

The square icon will make the text editor full screen and larger than life!
