The text editor is available in many areas of Moodle and is set to the default Atto editor.
Formatting text options
The Text editor is available for all text areas in Moodle and the format is automatically set to HTML format (Atto being the default editor).
However, if the setting ‘Editor preferences’ from the user menu top right > Preferences is set to ‘Plain text area’, then various format options are available in a dropdown menu below the text area.
Plain text format
This format is useful when you need to include lots of code or HTML that you want to be displayed exactly as you wrote it.
It still translates spaces and new lines, but otherwise your text isn’t touched.
