Common Reference to Add New Question: Using Text Editor
About the text editor
When you add new questions, a rich text editor enables you to use basic and advanced formatting and styling options for the text in the questions. For example you can set up text formatting for alignment, using lists, text colors, adding images or videos, and more advanced options.
In the text editor, a menu bar is available for different menu items and internal options. Please see “Common Reference to Add New Question: Using Menus” for more details on using the menu bar in the questions.

The questions’ text editor gives you a comprehensive and advanced formula editor that you can use to design questions for technical subjects. For example, you can write mathematics questions for advanced formulae and equations, and use the symbols for writing questions in Chemistry, Physics, or other sciences. When you insert a formula, there are advanced configuration settings for the styling and properties to set up the usability or behavior of the formula in the questions. Please see Common Reference to Add New Question: Using Formula Editor for detailed instructions.
