UC Text


With the UC Text component, you have many ways to edit and augment the copy of your site. Click and drag the UC Text component from the 'General' section of the Sidekick to get started.

Getting Started:

Empty UC Text

Click and drag UC Text from the General section of the sidekick to your page. You'll see this small paragraph icon denoting an empty text field. Double-click this to open the text editor and insert your copy.

After you're inserted your copy, there are a number of functions available to you to make your content more dynamic.

  • Cut, Copy, Paste: The first five icons at the top left provide you with cut, copy, and paste functions. This is useful, but the standard keyboard commands work as well.
  • Find, Replace: The next two icons allow you to search through your text, and/or replace a segment with another.
  • Formatting: The next several icons allow you to bold, italicize, underline, super- and sub-script your text.
  • Alignment: Align your text to the left, center, or right of the component's space.
  • Link: Select a segment of text and click the Link icon to create a hyperlink with the selected text; works with both internal and external pages. The Link icon with the red 'x' will remove the hyperlink, and the Anchor icon inserts an anchor for in-page navigation.
  • List: The beginning of the second line of icons allows you to select paragraphs and convert them to a list, either bulleted or numbered. You can also select a list item and indent or outdent.
  • Table: Insert a table. Right-click on a table to edit its columns, rows, size, padding, spacing, etc.
  • Special Characters: Insert characters that don't have a common keystroke, such as foreign currency symbols.
  • Check Spelling: Check the spelling of your text.
  • Source Edit: At any time, you can click this icon and see the HTML code that this component has created.
  • Format: Change a paragraph's style to one of several Headers, or select a blockquote.

With the UC Text component on your page, double-click to open the Edit Component window. Under the Text tab, you'll insert the copy for your page. You can do this either by writing within this window, or copying and pasting from an outside source.
