Rich Text Editor (Vuram)

The Rich Text Editor Component can be used on Appian interfaces where you want to show the rich text information in readable format to the end user. We can use the component to show it as an email subject typing interface.

With this component you can add images, customize tables etc. This also has a functionality called placeholders using which you can use the same information in multiple items in the editor without retyping. Additionally it allows uploading of images which get stored in the specified Appian folder (requires separate install of the Rich Text Editor Image Upload Connected System Plug-in )
