Text editor options

The Text Editor in Dr.Explain does not differ much from text editors in other word processors. It allows you to perform common text formatting operations, insert tables, images and other objects, etc.
Dr.Explain's embedded text editor supports rich text format with various font faces, including Unicode fonts (e.g. for Chinese). Dr.Explain also supports RTL (right-to-left) typing mode for languages such as Arabic or Hebrew.
If you need to find a word/phrase/symbol in Dr.Explain you can use the Find-and-Replace functionality that is present in most word processors by using the Ctrl+F or Ctrl+H keyboard shortcuts. You can also go to the Edit menu and select Find / Replace menu option there.
