General Editing

The editing screen looks much like a word processor, with features for formatting text ie. bold, italics, alignment. When you roll your cursor over an icon, a text label displays its function. Take a minute to explore the features.
 
Tip: Visit our Getting Started Video Tutorials for in depth training on a number of these icons.

 

Using Heading Tags
