Setka Post Editor Text Editing

Text Editing

Working with text in Setka Editor

In Setka Editor, text is broken into paragraphs. Rather than working with single lines of text, formatting is applied to the whole paragraph. To change several paragraphs at the same time, hold cmd (ctrl for PC) + Click to select the desired paragraphs. Changes made will be applied to these paragraphs.

Shortcut Shift + Enter creates a new line in the same paragraph. This can be more convenient when you type an article directly in the Editor. When inserting large pieces of text, the Editor will break it up into paragraphs.


How do I format text?

Formatting and all keyboard shortcuts are applied to the whole paragraph. However, separate words and lines of text (within the paragraph) can also be edited — you can set them as italic or bold and add anchors and links to them. These options are displayed in the Selection tab when text is highlighted.


How do I delete a line?

Highlight text or an element and press backspace to delete. Right-click inside the post and select delete paragraph or grid to remove larger elements.


How do I switch text formats?

Click inside a paragraph, and in the Paragraph tab you have the option to change the text style. These text styles are created in the Style Manager.


How do I select several paragraphs at the same time?

Hold cmd (ctrl for PC) + click the desired paragraphs. You can then apply the same changes to multiple paragraphs.



If you need to select the whole content of the article, press cmd (ctrl for PC) + Shift + A.


How do I align text?

Click inside a paragraph, and in the Paragraph tab you have the option to align text in the centre, to the left or right or by post width.


How do I adjust bottom indentations?

Click inside the paragraph, and in the Paragraph tab select bottom indentation in pixels (px) or hold cmd/ctrl + up/down arrows. Indent values are divisible by the line-height parameter of the font used in order to maintain the post’s layout.


How do I regulate internal indentations?

Internal indentations are empty margins at the top and bottom of a paragraph. Click inside the paragraph, and in the Paragraph tab select inner indent in pixels (px) to alter these margins.


How do I change the text color?

To change the color of the text, click inside the paragraph and in the Paragraph tab, select the desired color. These colors are chosen in the Style Manager.


How do I add icons to the text?

To add icons, click 5.pngin the vertical right hand toolbar. Your preselected icons and emojis are displayed here.




Is there a way to set different colors for individual words?

No, you can only select a colour for the whole paragraph. This was a conscious decision made by our designers to ensure readability of your posts.



How do I create an anchor?

An anchor provides an internal link or bookmark to another part of your post. They can be useful when creating tables of content for longer posts.

To create an anchor, click inside the paragraph (which you would like your link to be directed to), select the anchor option in the Paragraph tab, and give the anchor a name.

To reach this anchor from another part of your post, highlight the desired text or elements, and in the Selection tab, select Anchor name. This will create a link to the anchor. Clicking on this text or element will take you directly to the part of the post where the anchor was applied.



How do I make scrolling to anchors smooth?

By default, clicking on an anchor instantly takes you to the dedicated paragraph in text. It is possible to turn this transition into a smooth scroll. Just add this code in Custom CSS section on your style settings.

@at-root {
  html, body { scroll-behavior: smooth; }

Please note that some browsers do not support smooth scrolling.  

How do I add a link?

Highlight the required word or text fragment. In the Selection tab, insert the link into the Link field. Press Enter or the [arrow button] to add the link.



How do I add a table of contents?

If you are making a long post with multiple sections, you can add a navigation for them. Add a table of contents before your article and assign anchor for each header as it is described above.
