Rich Text Editor Component


Displays a field that allows for users to type text and format it with a variety of style options.
Output is saved as HTML. To get the raw character output, designers can use the Appian function fn!stripHtml() on the output.
HTML output can be passed into Send E-Mail node or document generation smart services. Note that not all formats supported by the Rich Text Editor component may be supported by e-mail or document generation.

Allows uploading of images which get stored in the specified Appian folder (requires separate install of the Rich Text Editor Connected System Plugin).

Visit End-User Rich Text Editor Component for more information.

If you have any problems installing or using the component, please see the Rich Text Editor Component Plug-in Troubleshooting Guide
