Improved Text Editor

Communication is the one of the most important aspects of activeCollab. To be able to communicate with your team, you need to write down your thoughts and ideas in form of a comment or item description. We have simplified the process with our new and improved text editor.

Goodbye TinyMCE, Welcome Redactor #

We have been using TinyMCE for a long time and it served us well, but it is time to move on. As activeCollab is evolving, the text editor has to grow with it. This is why we have decided to give Redactor a try.

Since the new text editor is light-weight (only 112KB, compared to 328KB of the old ), you can expect a general performance boost after the upgrade. You will notice that pages in your activeCollab load faster and that comment and description forms are more accessible.

We hope the new text editor makes working in activeCollab even more enjoyable!
