Rich text editor settings

This settings section allows you to configure the behaviour of the rich text editor, everything from plugins to commands. Everything has a default value, so it's not required to configure any of this yourself.
Are you using custom configuration or plugins with TinyMCE?
In Umbraco 11 the TinyMCE version supported has been upgraded from version 4 to version 6. You need to migrate to the latest version if you are using TinyMCE plugins or custom configuration.
If your site is upgraded from an older version, follow the migration guides below to upgrade the TinyMCE version as well.
A config with all the values can be seen underneath. Since there are a lot of defaults configured, some of these have been omitted for the sake of readability. Anywhere something has been omitted it is shown with {...}.

  • Mode - The mode the command runs on
    • Insert - The command will insert something
    • Selection - The command operate on the text, or elements, selected
    • All - The command operates on everything

Custom config

Allows you to specify custom key value pairs for the rich text editor.

Examples

Remove default <p> tag.
"Umbraco": {
"CMS": {
"RichTextEditor": {
"CustomConfig": {
"forced_root_block": ""
}
}
}
}
Add custom styles to the Formats dropdown list in the Richtext Editor.
Use a text editor to find and replace \" with ". This will allow you to edit the JSON file in an easier-to-read format. Don't forget to add the \ back in when you are ready to paste the code back into your appsettings.json file.
