Moodle’s text editor buttons
In HAMK’s Moodle, the default text editor is Atto, which offers good basic functionality for producing content. By default, the text editor offers the most commonly used functions for formatting text, bulleting, creating links, and adding media content.
The buttons are structured into groups according to their functions
By default, only the top row of buttons are visible. The arrangement of the buttons may also vary depending on the screen resolution. You can display the rest of the buttons by pressing the arrow button (1) that expands the toolbars.
