In older versions of Intrexx, the FCKEditor was used as the editor. For applications that you have imported from older versions into an Intrexx 5.2 portal, or have updated to version 5.2, a compatibility mode is available to you in the editor. You can switch between the editor types TinyMCE - the current default editor - and the FCK Editor.

If you use the FCKEditor, three standard settings will be available to you in the Toolbar selection list for the editor symbol bar. Editor skin offers three various themes for the editor.

In addition to the File upload and Enabledirectory creation settings, which you can also find in TinyMCE,here you can activate the Allow editing of HTML source code setting; with this setting, you can switch to the HTML source code via a button on the end device.

You can find additional information on the FCKEditor at http://ckeditor.com/.
