on Edit mode on a property XHTML (string >255) is it possible to add a "Remove Format" button ?
You can remove format by selecting it in the dropdown menu, and you can do it by right clicking in the editor. Do you want to do more than the default behaviour?
there's a misunderstanding there. The user wants to clear the format inside the text editor with a single button. I couldn't find that button. All I need is the button that you see in the menu of this editor (top right) that says "Remove formatting"; but I don't know how to add it.
This page talks about the difference between EPiServer 5 and 6:http://world.episerver.com/Documentation/Items/Tech-Notes/EPiServer-CMS-6/EPiServer-CMS-60/XHTML-Editor---Comparing-XHTML-Editors1/
About EPiServer 6, it says "Removing formatting can be done by applying the "Paragraph" element to the selected text. In EPiServer CMS 5 there was an "Remove formatting" option in the style selection drop-down list. The "Remove formatting" option can be made available from Admin mode as a button."
Go to the page type in admin mode, click the xhtml property, then the "custom settings" tab. The "Remove formatting" button is listed under "Miscellaneous". Drag that element to where you want it.
I came across this thread because my CMS users also used the Remove Formatting option a lot on version 5. I've followed the instructions above to add it back in on an individual page but is there a simple way of adding this setting back in globally across my site?
I have not succeded with adding the remove format button by editing xhtml property it seems like a bug, i even added it in my tinyplugin and it still wont show up, have anybody succed with adding the remove format button (it is a default button in Tiny).
I am running 6 R2.
What do you mean by not able to add it? You are using the default button that is shipped with EPiServer? The button all the way to the right in the editor you are using to write a reply on this page?
Any error messages?
I mean that when adding the remove format in the gui under xhtml string property and saving wont produce the eraser in the Tinyeditor.
I have even tried adding it in the tinyplugin that I created.
No script erros and in the markup the removeformat is not there.
I can mention that we are not running Alloy tech or other demosites rebranded as our site, we have created it from scratch.
I've tested by clicking my xhtml property (which is a tinymce editor, not the legacy xhtml editor) and customizing the settings by dragging the remove format button to one of the editor rows. Screenshot here: http://screencast.com/t/6kiY7ZKxgk1 If I go the editmode, the button is displayed correctly. That does not happen for you? Your editor should look like this: http://screencast.com/t/JGrujATne and not the legacy editor which looks like this: http://screencast.com/t/qxGp2aXKTwJ
