  • Placeholders

    Use placeholders to define initial text to be displayed in the input area of an Angular editor. A typical example is displaying “Enter text here” to direct a user to add their information.
  • Resizing

    By default, the Angular Rich Text editor is not resizable, but there are cases where end-users would like to adjust their work area to be bigger or smaller. For that case, all you need to do is set the resizable option to true. You can restrict the dimensions to keep the Editor in a particular space or set no limits at all.

    See the Angular Rich Text Editor Resizable demo

  • Plugins Support

    The Angular Editor Component users the ProseMirror plug-in system which allows you to build your own features. See the demos linked below for examples that include tools that pop up when text is highlighted and input rules that transforms text when it matches conditions.
