Gallery Server 4.0 introduces a brand new, tinyeMCE-based HTML editor that gives you a familiar interface for rich text editing. This makes it easier to add descriptions with headings, bullet lists, links and more.
The HTML editor is available in all editions except for Gallery Server Free. It even works in the 30-day trial.
Using the editor is easy. Click anywhere in the text and it changes to an inline editor.
Use the toolbar icons to adjust the formatting. For example, make a hyperlink by highlighting the text and hitting CTRL-K or clicking the hyperlink toolbar icon.
By default, only the caption uses the new HTML editor. The other properties use a plain text editor. However, you can change this behavior on the Metadata page on the Settings ribbon tab. Each click in the Editable column cycles between three states: Off (not editable), plain text editor, and HTML editor. Here you can see the default settings of using the HTML editor for the caption and the plain text editor for the other properties.
Want to use the HTML editor for the title property? Update the Metadata page so that the HTML editor is configured for the title property, and viola!:
It also works when editing the title in the center pane:
It is important to note that the HTML editor respects the HTML settings assigned on your User Settings page:
