Using the HTML editor

The embedded HTML editor allows you to enter and edit the HTML content in Alloy Navigator records.

You can edit the content in one of two modes:

  • Design - for editing the content using a WYSIWYG editor that shows the content the way the intended audience sees it.

  • HTML Code - for editing the HTML code directly (available only for Announcements, KB Articles, and Service Catalog Items).

If the HTML Code mode is available, you can switch between the modes by clicking the Source button on the HTML editor toolbar.
