|Available in: All Editions|
Most rich text editors in Salesforce are now using Quill, and a few continue to use CKEditor in an iframe. The move to Quill enables the rich text editors to be compliant with LockerService, but there are minor visual and formatting differences compared to previous releases.
- Custom Fields
Rich text editors in fields with the rich text area type are back. Some formatting appear different when you save a record in Salesforce Classic and edit it in Lightning Experience. For more information, see Rich Text Editors for Custom Fields Get a New Look.
- Chatter Feeds
The rich text editor in the composer has changed slightly. For example, the @mention button is next to the Insert Image button. For more information, see Get a Richer Experience with the New Editor in Chatter.
- Chatter Questions
The changes to the rich text editor in Chatter Questions are similar to the changes for Chatter Feeds.
- Community Builder
The Rich Content Editor component in the community builder has changed. The Underline button is now available, and the Code Snippet button is no longer available. For more information, see Refine Your Content with a Streamlined Rich Content Editor and Dedicated HTML Editor.
The toolbar in the Information field provides more support for rich text formatting. Give your group’s information a boost using these new toolbar features:
- Change the font face
- Underline or strike out text
- Create a numbered list
- Add or remove indentation
- Remove formatting
- Sales Path
The rich text editor in the Guidance for Success field has changed. The undo and redo buttons are no longer available. You can use the Edit menu in your browser to undo or redo your changes. We recommend using the toolbar as much as you can to format your content. If you copy formatted content from another source and paste into the editor, unsupported tags are removed and text within those tags are preserved as plain text. Only formatting available in the toolbar is supported.
- forceChatter:publisher Component
The changes to the rich text editor in forceChatter:publisher are similar to the changes for Chatter Feeds.
Rich Text Editors Using CKEditor
Rich text editors in Salesforce Classic continue to use CKEditor. In Lightning Experience and Salesforce1, the following features have rich text editors that continue to use CKEditor.
- Email Composer, using the Send Email action
- Lightning Knowledge
- Lightning App Builder
- ui:inputRichText component
These features load the rich text editor in an iframe, so they don’t load correctly if your browser doesn’t have the appropriate security settings. Refer to your browser’s instructions to configure the settings. For example, in Internet Explorer, the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME security setting must be set to Enable or Prompt. In Safari, we recommend changing your Privacy settings for cookies to Allow from websites I visit (1). In Chrome, make sure that Block third-party cookies and site data is not selected in the Content settings.
Additionally, to start typing in the rich text editor on Internet Explorer 11 on touch-enabled devices running Windows, you must click the rich text area field and tab into the editor first.
