You can view and copy the source of this page. Now that you're familiar with the visual editor, I'll guide you through the most important features for editing. If you haven't yet read [[Help:Editing/Your first edit|Your first edit]], I recommend reading it before following this guide. ==Walkthrough== ===Bold and italic text=== I'm back on the [[Twist Coaster Robin]] article and I've clicked ''Edit''. Typically, the article name is displayed in '''bold''', so I'll demonstrate how to add bold text. [[File:ve-basics-01.png|center|400px]] Highlight a portion of text then click the ''style text'' button [[File:ve-button-styletext.png]]. Select ''Bold'' to apply the effect. If I make a mistake, highlighting a portion of text and clicking ''Clear styling'' will revert it to plain text. ===Links=== <!-- Help:Categories links to this heading --> [[File:ve-basics-02.png|center|400px]] I now wish to add a link to another article on the wiki, in this case [[steel]]. I can highlight the text like I did previously, but as ''steel'' is only one word I can click the ''link'' button [[File:ve-button-link.png]] immediatly after typing. [[File:ve-basics-03.png|center|400px]] A popup suggests articles to link to. As ''steel'' is top selection, I can hit ''enter'' or click ''Done'' and the link is created. Before resuming typing, make sure to click on the edit area or hit the right arrow key to avoid deleting the link! Now I can create a link to ''roller coaster'' in a similar fashion, but as "roller coaster" is two words I must highlight the text prior to clicking the ''link'' button. ===Headings and subheadings=== Now that I've written the introduction, I'll make a heading before writing the next paragraph. [[File:ve-basics-04.png|center|400px]] This ''Paragraph'' button actually indicates what size of text I'm about to type. Click on a heading, for example, and the button will display ''Heading''. To add a new heading, I must ensure I'm on a new line by hitting ''enter''. Then, I click ''Paragraph'' and select ''Heading''. [[File:ve-basics-05.png|center|400px]] Once I've finished typing my heading, hitting ''enter'' again will return the editor to paragraph mode. Return to Help:Editing/VisualEditor basics.
