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 > Sites > Global.
  2. Click search, located to the left of more_horiz, and type Extra Java Script.
  3. In the Extra Java Script field, add an array RTE_UNICODE similar to the following example.

    RTE_UNICODE = [
    // En Dash
    '\u2013',
    // Em Dash
    '\u2014'
    ];
    • Optional comment.
    • Code point for en dash.
    • Optional comment.
    • Code point for em dash.
