At PBworks we keep track of all those support questions and feature requests that we receive from millions of users. Over time we noticed a pattern of frustration. The number one support request has consistently been, PLEASE FIX YOUR EDITOR!
Some of the things that you brought to our attention have been:
- Bullet points and numbering are funky
- Spacing and formatting are difficult
- Tables frustrate the living daylights out of me!
We totally agree. That’s why super-engineer BK2 spent the last six months building a faster, smarter, better editor. With this new editor it will be much easier to create lists, add tables and link images. Pages will load faster. Paragraphs will consistently maintain their formatting. Life will be a better place.
This is what the old editor looked like:
This is what the new tool bar will look like:
New features include the ability to create strike-through text. Also on educator workspaces, you can now create sub-script and super-script font.
There aren’t many changes to the tool bar, but there are a lot of changes to how the editor works. Here are a few things you will notice:
Linking – Just click a link and you’ll have the option of changing its URL or removing the link.
Tables – It’s now easier to insert a table AND format the column/cell/row.
Color – Now when you highlight a word, we save that color so you can apply it more than once.
Pasting from word – What you paste from word, we now remove more of the Word source code – which means you can edit and re-format your content.
