Updates to CMS page editor
We recently upgraded to a new version of our page editor in the CMS. We wanted to update you on two changes that impact day-to-day page editing.
Copying and pasting
The golden rule still applies: Do not copy or paste from Word.
You do not have to click the clipboard icons with the T or W anymore. You can skip this step and paste directly into the Page Body area.
You can paste your copy directly into the editor now.
- Paste as Plain Text – CTRL/CMD+SHIFT+V
The browser handles removing all formatting natively.
- Paste from Word/HTML – CTRL/CMD+V
This will paste with the text formatting (bold text, bullets, links, etc.) still intact.
If you happen to click one of those icons, you may see the following message: “Press CTRL/CMD+V to paste. Make sure your cursor is where you want your new copy and use CTRL/CMD+V to paste it inside the editor.” This is a note to let users know they can paste directly into the editor.
You’re saving a step by not having to paste inside a box and click OK. This is a note about the change from the developers of the tool: “Ideally we’d like the browser to just paste and that’s it – however, due the security reasons, modern browsers do not expose any means to paste other than using native ways …”[Source.]
Posting an image
When you post an image, 10 pixels of padding is added automatically.
You’ll still need to add the image URL from the file manager, width/height and alignment.
There also is a new field that allows you to add a caption or cutline below your image.
To utilize the caption, check this box and click OK.
