Specifics of working with text in Setka Editor
In Setka Editor text is broken into paragraphs. This way you work with a paragraph (Paragraph) instead of an arbitrary text or line. Each paragraph is a separate element of the post. Formatting is applied to the paragraph. To change several paragraphs at the same time you need to click on them clipping Alt + Click.
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. But, for example, if you try to insert a large piece of text, it will still break into separate paragraphs.
How to format text?
The basic unit of text in Setka Editor is a Paragraph, and settings are applied to it. All keyboard shortcuts in Setka Editor work for the whole paragraph (to see the complete list of shortcuts, click [shortcuts] on the toolbar on the right). To set a new line in one paragraph and format it as a whole, press Shift + Enter.
Separate words and pieces of text (not paragraphs) can also be edited — you can set them as italic or bold and add anchors and links to them. If you select the required piece of text, the Selection tab displays and lets you control its appearance.
How to delete a line?
Press Delete to delete content. Right-click the line and select Delete or press Shift + Delete to delete the line itself. An Embed is deleted in the same way (link to embed).
How to switch text formats?
Open the Paragraph tab and select the required text style: paragraph, large header, medium header, small/large header, small text. These styles can also be set up in the Style Editor.
How to select several paragraphs at the same time?
Press Alt and select the required paragraphs by clicking them. You can select paragraphs randomly. Now you can change the styles (color, size, font) of several paragraphs at the same time.
If you need to select the whole content of the article, press Ctrl + Shift + A.
How to align text?
Click Paragraph and select the required type of alignment on the top toolbar. You can align text at the center, on the left, on the right or by post width.
How to adjust bottom indentations?
Click Paragraph > Bottom indent or press Ctrl + (up/down arrow). You can specify the indent size in pixels (px). Indent values are divisible to the line-height parameter of the main font of the style (paragraph). This solution was designed to suggest indents that suit the post’s layout.
How to regulate internal indentation?
Internal indentations are empty margins at the top and bottom of a paragraph. To format these indentations open the Paragraph tab and then the Inner indent menu. You can choose the size of the indentation in pixels (px).
How to highlight text with color?
You can highlight a paragraph with color. Click the Paragraph tab and select the desired shade from the Color menu - these colors are set in style. You can add color to any text - captions to images, links.
You can work with different backgrounds and colored inserts.
You can not highlight one or more words (not a paragraph) with color. This prohibition is a conscious decision because from the typography point of view in the most cases this visual feature is not needed.
How to add symbols and icons to the text?
In order to add symbols and icons, click on the toolbar to the right of the preview window. A window with various symbols or emojis is displayed.
Notice the “black rectangle” symbol — this is a non-breaking space. Place it anywhere you want to avoid splitting up text items that should remain together, like prepositions or numbers.
Is there a way to set different colors for individual words?
No, but you can specify a color for the paragraph. Open the Paragraph tab and select the required shade in the Color menu – these colors are specified in the style.
How to add a table of contents to the post?
If you are making a long post with sections and want to provide navigation for them, write a table of contents and transform the header of each section into an “anchor” – a bookmark in the post with a unique name that is accessible via a direct link.
How to create an anchor?
Open the Paragraph tab and give the paragraph a name in the Anchor Name field. In order to return to the anchor from another part of the text, click the Selection tab, then click the Anchor menu.
How to add a link?
Select the required word or text fragment using your cursor, click Selection and insert the link into the Link field or select the anchor name to create a link to it. Then press Enter or click the [arrow button].
