Image Manipulation is Easy

Users can insert images into their documents with one button click. The selected is image can be uploaded to their web server via FTP simply by setting the FTP login credentials and storage directory for the server.

Once inserted the image can be resized with the mouse or, along with other properties like alt and border by selecting "images properties" from the "right-click" context menu. Users can choose to maintain the aspect ratio of their image when re-sizing or reset the image to its original properties.

Simple 'Word-Processor' styled interface.

End-users do not face a steep learning curve as the editor's interface resembles many familiar word-processors, with similar buttons and accelerator keys. HTML elements can be inserted using the buttons on the three moveable toolbars.

Each toolbar can have it's visible property turned on and off. Toolbar 1 contains standard editor features such as cut / copy / paste , undo / redo , justification and indenting. Toolbar 2 contains other text modification commands and table, link, image upload buttons. Toolbar 3 handles HTML form objects.  

HTML Source Editing

Advanced users can view and edit the HTML code for the document and make and view the resulting changes instantly in WYSIWYG view.
