CK Editor / GT Editor Toolbar Control ButtonsCK Editor / GT Editor Toolbar Control Buttons
Many campus Drupal websites have either the What You See is What You Get (WYSIWYG) text editor called CKEditor, or the custom built specialized version of CKEditor known as "GT Editor".
The table below describes many of the control buttons you will find on the CKEditor or GT Editor toolbar. If your control buttons don't look like these, you should ask your site administrator or local web developer to look into upgrading your site to the latest version of CKEditor.
Note: The control name can be seen by hovering over the control, and is what should be heard when working with accessibility technology.
Note: It is possible that your site administrator may have removed or rearranged control buttons or added ones not described below. In addition, Drupal 8 sites will not have all of the buttons below by default, as Drupal 8 comes with a minimal functionality version of CKEditor.
