  • NOTE: When you go to a new page, it’s important to note that Edit mode will be disabled. Every page which you hope to edit will require you to toggle the edit bar at the top of the screen.
  • An important new feature of the editor is the inclusion of something called the Inspector. It is located at the bottom of the page when you are editing a content item. This is where you can apply the various styles supplied by the Web Services team to your content. The available styles will be impacted by the specific type of content you’re editing (Text, link, images, buttons). For more information, ask Web Services about the available styles and instructions on using them.–
