My eCoach: New Editor Tutorial
A Step-by-Step Guide

 

Tutorial for New Editor in My eCoach

 

This new editor offers many of the same features that were in the current editor. You may have noticed that the current editor no longer works with online programs. So we found this editor that even lets you drag and drop images, place videos using the URL, and more.

 

Tools to change the font and text


 

Styles has multiple font styles to choose from.

  • Make sure you scroll up and down to see all of them.

  • If you don’t want to use any from the list, keep it on “Styles.”




 

The second pull-down menu is to format headers and paragraphs

  • Normal is the default and what you probably will use for the body of your text.

  • Heading 1 works well for main titles and chapter titles.

There are 10 different font styles to choose from.
