Editing text

Editing text in Elucidat is similar to making text changes in other platforms - you select the location you want to edit, input your text or make your changes, and then commit the changes by saving the page. 


Editing text in a text box

1. Select the text box you want to edit. The editing toolbar will appear above the text box you are in, showing the edit options available:


For more information about the text editor and the formatting options available, see Feature Focus: Working with the text formatting toolbar.

2. Type your content into the text box. You can also copy and paste text from other programs.

Note: If you are pasting text from a formatted document (such as from Word), we recommend you use the shortcut CTRL/CMD+SHIFT+V (not the usual CTRL/CMD+V), as this will strip any formatting (bold, italic, colour, bullet points etc) that is applied to the text before pasting.


3. Then select Save to submit your changes:


If you do not wish to save your changes, then just select the Undo button.

Note: While our text editor is versatile and can support a wide range of symbols and characters, we do not support the use of emojis. However, it is possible to add images into your text which could then be re-sized to imitate an emoji. You can read more about how to add images into text boxes in Adding images to text.
