Using the Rich Text Editor on iOS Devices

April 02, 2013 | 0 Minute Read

If you are using iOS 5.1 or later on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, we have a bit of good news for you: the rich text editor that we use in the course BBS, wiki, class email tool and Announcements tool now works on iOS devices! 

Previously, we had to provide a simple text box with no formatting if you were using an iOS device. This is because the rich text editor just didn't work on iOS devices. The group that makes the rich text editor recently updated it so that it now works on iOS devices, and we've added that version to the online course system.

If you're using an Android device, however, we don't have good news for you. The rich text editor still doesn't work on Android devices — although the new Chrome web browser that Google is building for Android 4 and later should work once Google finishes the product. We're keeping an eye on this so we can hopefully bring the rich text editor to Android devices soon as well.
