During the summer of 2017, we released a new Buzz UI, giving you the same features and functionality with a cleaner, simpler user experience!

Until all users have switched to the new UI, our Help Center articles will include information for both. 

Click the header below that aligns with the Buzz UI version you are using (Old UI or New UI); if you don't know which version you are using, review the differences and/or contact your system admin or Agilix account manager.

Old UI

Buzz's rich text editor is similar to text editors you find in Microsoft Word, Google Docs, and other word processors. It appears in various places throughout the app, but teachers will use it most when creating activities, and students will use it most when completing certain activities.

Here's a breakdown of what you can do with Buzz's rich text editor:

  1. Choose a font.
  2. Choose a font size.
  3. Choose a font color.
  4. Choose a font highlight color.
  5. Bold, italicize, strikethrough, and underline text.
  6. Create a table.
  7. Create a bulleted or numbered list.
  8. Increase and reduce your text's indentation.
  9. Choose text alignment (e.g., left, center, right, or justified).
  10. Add and remove URL links, course links, or linked course resources.
  11. Insert an image.
  12. Embed a YouTube video.
  13. Insert an equation.
  14. Embed coded content (code view).
  15. Undo and redo the last step.
  16. Use full screen mode.

Can we examine the HTML code that generates the rich text editor? 

(There used to be an "HTML" button in brainhoney)

Hello Mr. Frankl:

In the new Buzz UI, you can for activities and their content. The old Buzz UI does not have this option. In the new Buzz UI, it is located under the "Code View" button.

Mr. Frankl

When I click this button, I'm allowed to add HTML content, but I can't see the HTML for content already displayed by the Rich Text Editor. Is there still a way to "get under the hood" and manipulate the HTML code for what's already there?

That button should be doing it. Are you sure it is the same button that says "Code View" when you hover over it? There was a similar button in the old Buzz UI but it was for embedding content.
