This is a big step forward for our once-humble text editor: a full toolbar, just like our visual editor. But before I get ahead of myself, I should probably explain that our text editor is an optional way to look at the ‘wikitext’ behind your pages. It’s available by clicking ‘Text Editor’ when you’re working on a page or as an option in your account settings. Previously, our text editor was a bit spartan, just a big text box with the usual preview and save buttons. You had to know our wikitext syntax to make changes to your pages. Now the text editor toolbar works just like its visual editor cousin, and offers the same shortcuts to format and lay out text.
If you’re a user of our regular visual editor, you’ll probably never see this change. But if you’re a fan of getting your hands dirty, we think the new toolbar will really speed up editing. Enjoy!
