A quick tour of editing

Introduction

IT Glue's document template has two main elements: the editing toolbar and the floating context menus. The editing tool bar allows you to quickly format the text to the way you want them to appear. A context menu is a menu that appears upon user interaction and offers a limited set of actions related to the selected item.

Editing toolbar

The editing toolbar contains several options and commands you will need to format your content.
