formatting buttons question

Hi Jason

Couple of things with regards to the formatting buttons of the HTML editor

1. if the preview button is being used, how do you get the resulting window to use a specific stylesheet?
2. spellchecker - how do you get this to work? I have the item in the editor array, but it doesnt show

cheers

In HTML Editor, edit the preset, then go to the styles tab to attach a style sheet to the editor and set the styles that should show in the styles list. the preview will use the styles that you attach.

also, when editing the html preset, you can select to enable spell check as you type, or if not enabled by default, when you use the spell check button, it will give options for turning it on.

Hi Jason

Thanks for that.... am using the html editor as part of DB rather than standalone so not sure how the above applies?

edit the HTML Editor instance on the page, then click the pencil icon next to the preset to edit the preset and set the spell check and styling options.

gotcha - found it thanks!

apart from the page in question, are there any other files that need uploading as the changes on the update page I have just created havent taken effect...or is it just a cache issue?

Also, am not sure what I should expect from the spellchecker side of things but nothing seems to happen if I put in an incorrect word

it is probably a cache issue.

spell checker will underline incorrectly spelled word.
it doesn't work in IE though, this is a known limitation to the CKEditor spell checker.
