Familiar for the User
Editor provides many of the formatting options we use every day in online editing tools.
Any user can
- Change the style of text: h1, h2, h3, normal, and code (among others).
- Apply bold, italics, strike-thru, underline formatting.
- Align text in standard ways
- Add ordered or unordered lists
- Indent or outdent text
- Insert text or images
- Change the font or background color.
Additionally, FileMaker scripts can be used to add pre-defined text and images.
Flexibility for the Developer
Editor is all Native FileMaker
- The web viewer app is self-contained in a separate file, making it easy to integrate into an existing custom app.
- The design of the layout and toolbar buttons (outside the web viewer) is all done in FileMaker. You can completely change how it looks just using FileMaker layout mode.
- The buttons run FileMaker scripts.
- The editor toolbar and theme can be controlled via scripts. If you want to remove the “h1” formatting option, remove that from the scripting.
