WYSIWYG mode of text editing in Targetprocess

WYSIWYG is an acronym for "what you see is what you get". A WYSIWYG editor is a system in which content (text and graphics) can be edited in a form closely resembling its appearance when printed or displayed as a finished document.

What is WYSIWYG?

WYSIWYG implies a user interface that allows the user to view something very similar to the end result while the document is being created. In general, WYSIWYG provides the ability to directly manipulate the layout of a document without having to type or remember names of layout commands.

How to enable WYSIWYG mode?

Formatting mode for text editors in entity descriptions and comments is a common setting for the whole account. It affects all processes and all users. The switch is done by Administrators. A WYSIWYG editor is enabled by default in Targetprocess so you don't need to enable it on purpose. It is represented in CKEditor rich text editor.

Administrators select the default editor from the Settings → General Settings → Text editor type.



The Toolbar is the section located at the top of the editor window. It contains menu buttons that give you access to various functions of CKEditor. All buttons are grouped according to their function and include both simple operations (like basic text styling or formatting) and more advanced features (like inserting media or forms via a dialog window).

This is what the editor toolbar looks like:

Remember that the toolbar can also be used with your keyboard. To enter the toolbar, use the Alt+F10 keyboard shortcut. To move to the next or previous button group, use the Tab and Shift+Tab keys, respectively. Within a button group, use the Left Arrow and Right Arrow keys to move between buttons of this group. To activate a selected toolbar button, press Enter or Space.

A list of CKEditor toolbar items can found here.


In order to create a table click the corresponding button on the toolbar:

In the appeared window modify table properties according to your needs.

If you need to modify or delete a table use ctrl + right click


You can work with a text directly as an HTML code with the help of the "Source" button on the toolbar using a list of supported tags.
