In WebWave CMS - website builder with no coding - the built-in text editor is of type WYSIWYG and allows you to easily manage text on your website. In order to access it, click on any text element.


The two text edition panels will appear. One of them is a bit reduced and appears only when you don't need all the WYSIWYG features everywhere.

 Remove format

This option allows you to remove previously added styles. The text will go back to default look.


 Text alignment

The well-known effect of Microsoft Office Word. It allows you to decide how the text will be aligned in the element. You can align text sections differently. Alignation works also for images and videos placed in a text element. 

  • Align left - align text to the left side of the element. 
  • Align center - align text to the center so  each line is positioned in the middle of the element.
  • Align right - align text to the right side of the element.
  • Justify - align text to the left, then when you add text, the effect will make sure if it is  aligned to the right as well. It might cause bigger spaces between words.
