- The usual way to edit or create text that is part of the visual content of a course is by using a Text editor.
- New in 4.2: The default editor is known as the TinyMCE editor. An older editor Atto editor is also available but due to be phased out. A plain text editor is also available. See Formatting text for other options.
- The administrator decides which editors to enable or disable in Site administration > Plugins > Manage editors. The default editor for all users is the editor listed first.
- Individual Moodle users can, if allowed by the admin, choose their own text editor from the Preferences link in the user menu top right.
