The editor is our text editing and formatting tool that allows you to create the body of your contracts. It includes different features, some of which are exclusive to Contractbook.
What options for contract editing can I use?
- These two buttons allow you to instantly undo your last edit or redo and return to the instance before the change.
- Alternatively, you can use Ctrl+Z or Command+Z (Mac) keyboard command.
Three options for text styling are available here:
- Paragraph: designed in general for body text
- Code: intended for any programming language or piece of code
- Four headline styles
Font type and size
You can choose the font you like and apply size to it.
Bold, italic, strikethrough & underline
To apply any of these options to a block of your text, either press the button in the Editor corresponding to the style or use the keyboard shortcuts:
- Bold: Ctrl/Cmd + B
- Italic: Ctrl/Cmd + I
- Strikethrough: Ctrl/Cmd + D
- Underline: Ctrl/Cmd + U
It is naturally possible to align text to the left, center, or right.
Contractbook editor has two listing options:
- Ordered list
- Bullet-point list
Both work in the same way:
- Press Enter for the next list item
- Press Tab to move in (for example, from 1 to 1.1)
- Press Tab + Shift to move out (for example, from 1.1 to 1)
- Press Shift + Enter to add extra space between points without creating a new one
