- Directional text: The editor also supports directional text so users can insert content right to left. This feature can be added using the Right to Left button within the editor.
- HTML elements for selected content: Beneath the Rich Content Editor window, users can view HTML elements for any selected content. This feature is beneficial for users who work with HTML and want to view or confirm placement of content.
