Edit of HTML

  • iDempiere has a WYSIWYG Editor to edit HTML content fields.  You can use the iDempiere standard WYSIWYG Editor when you select the editor menu that is displayed by right-click at the HTML content fields.
  • But I think that iDempiere standard WYSIWYG Editor can not use image file. And It is not so useful, if you want to edit multilingual contents. JPiere has WYSIWYG Editor plugin that can use image files and edit multilingual contents. Please use it if good.
