Using the Text Editor

How to Properly Use the Text Editor

The text editor in TerminalFour is similar to any other word processor, with a few added extras.

Basic editing features

You can use the editor to paste text, add images, create bulleted lists, and spell check your content before it’s published.

Cut, Copy and Paste

Cut, Copy and paste are all under the Edit button, but you can also use Ctrl+x (cut), Ctrl+c (copy), Ctrl+v (paste) if these don’t work in your browser (on Macs: Command+x, Command+c, Command+v).

It’s best to write most of your text in Word or another word processor and then paste it into TerminalFour to ensure you have a backup copy.

Paste as Text 

Select this option if you’d like your pasted content to show up as plain text, which strips out formatting. 

Formatting Text

Apply text formatting using the Format menu – you can highlight text and make bold or italicized text, or apply headlines:

Refer to our Web Content Guidelines if you have questions about how to write and apply headlines.

Inserting Lists and Links

Use the Content Editor to add formatting like bulleted lists and headlines to the page to make it easy for web visitors to scan. Note: Always select basic bullet options as our CSS will override specialty bullets.

Highlight text and click “Add Link” to add links to your page.

Insert Section Link lets you to link to another section of the website.

Insert/edit external link lets you add links outside of the Site Structure or greenriver.edu. 

Adding Images or Documents

All images and documents must be approved and uploaded to the Media Library by the College Relations Web Team. To request an asset be uploaded, please complete a Web Project Request. To add images or documents once approved:
