Bold, Italics, Underline, and Superscript



Just as a desktop word processor would allow you to quickly apply effects like bold or italics to text, Campusuite's editor allows you to do the same for your web pages. The editor allows you to add the following effects to a selection of text:

  • Bold
  • Italics
  • Underline
  • Superscript


Applying to Text

  1. Select and highlight the text that you wish to apply an effect to.
  2. In the Editor Toolbar, click the button of the effect to apply. You can choose from: Bold, Underline, Italics, and Superscript. Any combination of these effects can be applied to a selection. If an effect is already applied to the entire selection, the button for the appropriate effect will be highlighted in the Editor Toolbar.
  3. The editor will immediately apply the effect to the text. Depending on the format or styling of the text selected, you may or may not notice a change. For instance, if you added a format to text that is already bolded, trying to apply the bold effect to that text will not affect its appearance any further.


Removing from Text

If you find yourself having trouble removing these effects completely, it may be good to use this method: select more text than you need to, re-apply the effect to the larger selection, and the immediately remove the effect (without changing your selection before doing so).

Also, the font effects work separate from the styling rules of formats and styles. For instance, if your Heading 1 format specifies the text to be bold, you cannot use the Bold button in the Editor Toolbar to make the text "more" bold, or to remove the boldness from the text. The same would go for elements such as hyperlinks. If hyperlinks on your site are defined to be underlined, the Underline tool cannot be used to remove the underlining of a link.

  1. If you want to remove an effect from a part of a larger peice of text, select the portion of the text you wish to change. If you want to remove the effect from an entire selection of text, you only need to click and place your cursor somewhere within that text. If the effect is already applied to the text, the button for the effect in the toolbar should be highlighted. If the button is not, you may need to change your selection.
  2. Click the button for the effect you want removed.
  3. The editor will remove the effect and the change should show immediately. If you selected a portion of the text, then only that selection should be changed. Otherwise, the entire section of text should have had the effect removed. The button in the Editor Toolbar should also no longer be highlighted.
