Site Design

How to change the color of text in the Rich-text Editor in liveSite v8.

All content you edit using the rich-text editor will be styled according to the Active Desktop Theme for the website.  If you are creating a site design in reverse video (lighter text on a darker background), you may find it difficult to "see" the text in the rich-text editor in liveSite v8, since we no longer force the text to black and the background to white like we did in previous versions of liveSite.

If you need to force the foreground text to black and the background to white while within the Rich-text Editor, add this CSS code to the Advanced Styling area of your Activated Desktop Theme:

/* rich-text editor override styling */
