14 Text Formatting
Use the formatting toolbar to make adjustments to the text in your editing pane. Many of the formatting options are similar to those found in word processing software. Click the toolbar toggle button (first row, top right) to reveal the full set of formatting tools.
The editing window has two different tabs where you can enter your content:
- Visual: A WYSIWYG (“what you see is what you get”) window that displays formatting changes as entered and in real time. This is the primary and best option for most users.
- Text: An HTML-based editor that uses markup language. If you are familiar with HTML, you can use this tab for troubleshooting or customizations. We do not recommend extensive use of this option because heavy customizations could have downstream effects on book themes and on export formats.
