Enter and format rich content on your LiveTiles page.

How to Use

To enter the text editing mode, click on the tile and click on the pencil icon, or press the enter button when the tile is selected.  Then, the tile will enter an editing mode, allowing you to start typing content directly on the canvas.  To add in styles to the tile, click and drag over the text.  When any text is highlighted, a menu will appear, giving the option to add Bold or Italicize, turn the selected text into a heading, numbered or bullet point list, and quote.  Specific to the responsive and content canvas types, pressing enter to go to a new line gives the option to add in either an Image or Video Tile directly below the Content Tile onto the canvas.

Note:  There is currently a known issue where the content tile currently doesn't work in IE10.  Whilst pages with a content tile can still be viewed, while the content tile is on the design canvas in this browser, the browser will not work.

(Responsive Canvas Only) Auto Height

Layout (Fixed Width Canvas)

Reorder Within Layer – Allows the object to either be brought to the front, sent to the back, or have no change within the selected layer.

Tile Visibility – Changes which groups can or cannot view the tile.  Permissions are selected with a drop down for Everyone, ‘Only for’ or ‘For everyone except’. When ‘Only for’ or ‘For everyone except’ is selected, another drop down menu will appear where groups can be assigned to the category that was selected.
Lock Tile for Non-owners
– Toggles the tile to only be modifiable by an owner.
Custom CSS Classes
