The current text editor used by FCS is TinyMCE 3.2.


For easier formatting of your texts, you can switch to the factline-text -editor-mode. Functions similar to Word are available in the facttext-editor. Please note, that only very simple tables can be created with the factline text editor.
In case you have problems to start the facttext-editor, please read through the technical requirements.

Switch to facttext
Click on the button facttext_b - 132180.1 below the text or description field. Please be patient, as your browser will need some time to load the editor.

First, select “create table” from the menu. A pop-up window will open. Insert the number of columns. The first row of the table will be created.

Inserting pictures and links is not possible!
