New Rich Text Editor, EditLive! for IBM Connections, Launches at IBM Connect 2013

Users of IBM Connections Business Social Software Can Now Request New Rich Text Editor to Remove Frustration When Creating Wikis, Blogs, Profiles, Forums and Activities

PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- One of the keys to adoption of a social business platform is providing users with tools they understand and like to use, which is why the EditLive! rich text editor can now be the new default editor for content authors creating wikis, blogs and profiles within IBM Connections. Ephox Corporation's (ephox.com) EditLive! for IBM Connections will be launched at the IBM Connect 2013 event in Orlando Jan. 27-31.

"At Ephox, we find that there are three cyclical drivers of any online social community: Users, Content and Value," said Tom Smith, vice president of sales and marketing, Ephox Corporation. "The more users an organization has producing content will enable the social platform to have more quality content which drives value, and thus, valuable content drives user adoption."

After installation, the EditLive! rich text editor installs as the default text editing software for IBM Connections, a business social software platform. Therefore, EditLive! for IBM Connections will appear automatically on the editing screen, making it easier for content authors to:

  • Contribute quality content
  • Be more productive
  • Increase adoption among other users
  • Build and maintain momentum

The EditLive! for IBM Connections rich text editor provides comprehensive, web-based content editing functionality within IBM Connections, including:

  • Clean copy and paste from Microsoft Office and the browser
  • Inline spell checking as-you-type with alternatives and synonyms
  • Image import and editing capabilities
  • Accessibility compliance checking as-you-type
  • Import and format tables
