System modules > Text templates > Text templates administration

In the text templates administration, the different text templates are managed globally. The module view is differentiated in the selection area on the left and the text editor on the right.

 The selection is grouped according to the three text template types in the project templates, document templates and free texts. Within each group, an unlimited number of text templates can be recorded.

Functions of the text editor via the context menu:

Since not all functions are available via the toolbar (e.g. the place for the display of all buttons is limited in the toolbar), most of the functions can be also opened via the context menu. For this, the area / text / table which shall be formatted have to be marked first. Subsequently, the function selection can be opened through a right click on the mouse.
