I’m hatching a personal project in my spare time that is built (of course) on Sitefinity. As part of this project, I’ve been spending a lot of time writing in Sitefinity’s Rich Text editor. A feature I’ve started to utilize regularly is full-screen mode.
Handy Tip: You can also toggle into & out of full-screen mode by pressing F11.
This isn’t the first time I’ve done this in a CMS. I like to use full-screen edit mode for the same reason I like full-screen edit mode in MS Word or Google Docs. It creates a distraction free writing environment and lets me see more of my document.
However, my challenge with full-screen edit mode has always been the lack of word-wrapping. This results in paragraphs turning into a single long line of text on my wide-screen display.
This becomes obnoxious to work with. Text should not extend more than 65-70 characters. After this, it becomes difficult for the eye to locate the next line.
Thankfully, Sitefinity provides styling (by default) to avoid this challenge while working in full-screen edit mode.
I’m a big fan of this. Sitefinity’s Rich Text editor is also relatively forgiving about pasted content and produces nice HTML. As I get deeper into writing I tend to forget about Sitefinity entirely. This is ultimately what we’re aiming for. (Now we just need auto-save. :)
If you haven’t already, experiment with Sitefinity’s full-screen edit mode and tell us what you think.
