The document in Artshell is presented in its edit mode as a sheet where at the top you can specify a title and a date, beside having the chance of using the Multilingual feature, by selecting the language (Italian / English) in which you want to create content. By clicking in the white field under the title you will insert content to the document, and in particular:
Text: it is possible to put a text that describes the document. You can in fact copy the content from a Word, PDF or html link file, and paste it within the document. We suggest you to paste it unformatted, especially if you are copy-pasting from Word.
It is also possible to format a text within the document, by using the feature of formatting from the editor of Artshell. To format a text within the document it is sufficient to select the part that you wish to format, and a black "balloon” will pop up and some functions will be activated:
- Color: the first symbol on the left allows to set a color for the highlighted text. You can choose a color using the window and by navigating through the colors or otherwise by typing the HEX code (#000000, black)
- Bold: the second symbol allows you to set in bold the highlighted portion of text
- Italic: the third one allows you to set in italic the highlighted portion of text
- Font style: the fourth symbol allows you to set a font from the list of the available ones, set the dimension, and the line spacing
- Justification of text: the fifth symbol allows you to set the justification of the highlighted text, centered, to the right hand side, to the left, or justified. This button allows you to indent the text if necessary
- Link: the sixth and last symbol allows you to add a link to the portion of text highlighted. To add a link it is necessary to type or paste a link in the dedicated field, which will appear by clicking on the icon and then press ENTER on your keyboard. At this point three new symbols will pop up on the left hand side of the link: the first one on the left is to remove the link, the second one to edit it, and the third one allows you to verify it, meaning that a window of your browser will pop up with that link.
From the toolbar it is possible to insert media as pictures, videos or files, attached to your document. You can decide to insert them among the different parts of a text, to the end or at the beginning of the document.
