Configure a field editor for the HTML field

You can configure HTML fields to use TinyMCE or the legacy HtmlArea editor. This editor provides better stability and more editing functions than the legacy htmlArea editor.

Before you begin

Role required: admin

About this task

There are two options for HTML editors.
  • TinyMCE: A What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) field that displays text as readers would see it on the screen. TinyMCE is the default editor.
  • htmlArea: The legacy editor, which offers a more basic WYSIWYG interface as well as a mode that shows only HTML markup.


  1. Navigate to System Properties > UI Properties.
  2. Locate the property called HTML field editor to use (glide.ui.html.editor).
  3. Select TinyMCE or htmlArea.
  4. Click Save.
