About Text Boxes
Using the Rich Text Editor, which is very similar to MS Word, text can be highlighted and formatted in many ways (see the box on the right for more information).
The HTML icon in the editor makes it possible to edit the HTML code, as well.
Adding Text to Non Text Boxes
Every kind of box in LibGuides allows you to include text at the top of the box, using the same Rich Text Editor as the text box.
Simply click where it says add/text to access the editor. Text can only be entered at the top of non-text boxes.
The Text Box Rich Text Editor
Icons (shown here) at the top of the Rich Text Editor make it possible to format text in a text box in many ways. Text can be made bold, italic, underlined, centered, bulleted, or numbered. Font styles, sizes, and colors can be changed. Links can be added.
Text boxes also make it possible to add images and tables. (See the Add Images tab for more using on images.)
If you would like to link to a web site, simply highlight the words you want to link, select the chain link in the editing tools, add the URL (web site address) in the "Link URL" box, and select "Insert". Now, when you select the words, they will take you to the web site.
Advanced users can add search forms and other functions by adding scripts to Rich Text/Dynamic Content/Scripts boxes.
In your boxes you can add an anchor to a spot in the box. Then link to that anchor in another place on the page to go back to that spot or box.
Add an Anchor:
- Select in the box
- Put your cursor to where you want the anchor (the spot in the box you want to return or link to)
- Click on the anchor
- Name the anchor and select Insert
Link to an Anchor:
- In the box you want to link back to the anchor, select
- Highlight the works you want to link and click on the tree
- In the Link URL field type # and the name of your anchor
For example: If you named your anchor Intro, in the URL field you would type #Intro
- Select Save Changes
