eWeb - The Edit Text Tab: A Guide


The edit text tab allows you to modify the text and images of your website. You can type text directly into the sitebuilder and use its formatting tools to change the font, size and colour of your text. You can also add tables, adjust alignment and so on. The main purpose of this tutorial is to step through each icon and explain its purpose.

Here is the edit text panel in full:
