Adding characters to the rich-text editor's virtual keyboard


Brightspot’s virtual keyboard includes special characters not included in most keyboard layouts. You can add additional characters to the virtual keyboard.

To add characters to the virtual keyboard:

  1. Click menu > Admin > Sites & Settings
  2. In the Sites widget, select Global. The Edit Global widget appears.
  3. Under CMS, expand Advanced.
  4. In the Extra Java Script field, add an array RTE_UNICODE similar to the following example.

    The numbers 2013 and 2014 are hexadecimal Unicode values for the character. For a full listing of Unicode values, see Unicode 13.0 Character Code Charts.

  5. Click Save.
  6. To ensure Brightspot displays the new characters, advise editors to clear their browser’s cache.
