The Enhanced Text page type can be used for a variety of purposes.  It can be used to duplicate the functions of most other page types. 

To add an Enhanced Text page, go to your Update Index and click the Add New Pages button near the bottom of the page.

The Enhanced Text page includes a formatting toolbar with a variety of options.  You can format text, create hyperlinks, create tables, spell check, and much more.  You can easily insert your uploaded graphics by selecting from a drop-down list.  You can also copy and paste formatted text and tables from outside sources (such as a Word document) directly into the page.

The Help button (the "?" button in the bottom row) leads to a window that explains the function of each of the buttons. 

You can also see a brief description of each button's function by holding your cursor over the button.  After a second, the name of the button will appear.

Advanced users can also edit the HTML source code behind the Enhanced Text page (using the HTML tab in the lower left corner of the editing window).  However, please note that if you then encounter problems when doing this, you're on your own - TeacherWeb Support will not be able to help with problems caused by updates you make to the HTML code.  If you do try this and create problems in the page, you should remove all of your content (by completely clearing all text in the HTML Source section) and start again.  (Or, you can remove all HTML formatting within the page using the "Clean Up HTML" option - the broom button in the top row.)

The Enhanced Text page can be updated from any browser.
