A WYSIWYG ("What-you-see-is-what-you-get") Editor is the default kind of editor available to users in every page when they click an Edit button. It is similar to mainstream editors, such as MS-Word.

NOTE: Most users will prefer to use the Default Editing Mode. However, some users - i.e., advanced users or users needing more direct control over the formatting - may need to also use the Raw Editing Mode.

Copying and Pasting

It can sometimes be very convenient to copy and paste in pre-written content from, say, MS-Word documents.

Typically, this works very well. Just copy and paste content from the original document directly where you want it in the page. A good portion of the original formatting will be preserved automatically.

Once it is in the page, however, a user may wish to change some of the headings to a standard heading size, create additional links from that content to other topic pages in the portal, etc.

Raw Editing Mode: Editing TWiki Markdown Syntax directly
