Editor Tips

The LearningCart editor is based on the open source CKEditor project. For a complete user guide, please see http://docs.cksource.com/CKEditor_3.x/Users_Guide.

The editor is designed to work very similar to a standard word processing program. The editor makes a variety of formatting options very accessible and contains scores of features. In depth coverage of this portion of the system is out of scope of this Quick Start Guide, but we do want to cover a few common questions. If you run into specific issues, or have questions regarding use of the editor area, please contact your LearningCart representative and we will be more than happy to assist you.

Pasting content from Microsoft Word
It is often convenient to write and review content in Microsoft Word and then copy/paste that content into the LearningCart editor. Unfortunately when you copy content out of Microsoft Word it often includes additional formatting information that does not translate well to other programs. To automatically remove this formatting and ensure your content is formatted consistently with the rest of your LearningCart site use the Paste from Word feature.

To utilize this feature simply select the content from Microsoft Word that you want to copy and hit ctrl+c or click the copy button in Word. Navigate to the LearningCart editor and click within the editor where you want to place your content. Click the Paste from Word button from the editor toolbar. This button appears in the toolbar as a clipboard with a capital W and is show in the attached screen shot highlighted in yellow.

Your content will then automatically be imported into the editor screen.

Depending on your browser settings you may be prompted to allow the browser access to your clipboard. If this message appears click Allow Access to allow LearningCart to access the information you have copied and then follow the on-screen instructions.

Adding Links
Adding links from the editor to other areas within the LearningCart system can easily be done using the Link button. The Link button appears in the editor toolbar as several links of change and is shown in the attached screen shot highlighted in yellow.

To add a link, simply highlight the text in the editor that you want to turn into a link. Then click the Link button. A dialog window will open up that allows you to specify the URL you want this link to point to.

To link to a resource on another site enter your URL and then click the OK button.

To link to a new file or a resource within LearningCart click the Browse Server button.

The Add Link window will then appear and you can select the type of content you want to add a link to. Using this tool makes it easy to add links to LearningCart content, blogs, uploaded files, or products. Once you have found the item you want to create a link to, simply click on it and you will automatically be returned to the Link dialog window with the URL field automatically populated based on your select. Click the OK button to then add your link to the page.
