Using the Text Editor

Sitecore Content Hub includes a text editor (CKEditor) with media insertion and collaborative editing functionality, so that you can write text and insert media into your content items.

The following table describes the buttons available on the editing toolbar.


The first three buttons (Undo, Redo, and Comment) are available for all text fields. The remaining buttons are only available for rich text fields. Also, if a character limit is enabled, a word counter appears next to the field you are editing.
