Using the Cell Editor

The Cell Editor is used to edit the text content of cells. Several style controls are available for formatting individual sections of content.


To access the Cell Editor, double click on the cell of interest.





To insert a new interaction (eg Gap, Text Box, Menu (shown below), radio buttons, Check box, etc), click the corresponding button on the Cell Editor Toolbar. Once the interaction has been inserted, it is represented by a placeholder graphic in the Cell Editor.

Note: To insert text copied from another source, switch to Raw View and press Ctrl+V. This is the easiest way to remove existing formatting.
