Understand how you can edit the content of documents

When you create a new document, it opens in edit mode. You can type content directly into the document or use copy and paste to add content.

You can also insert images into your documents. You will be able to code both the text and images in your documents.

You can also add tables to structure the content of your documents—refer to Work with text tables for more information.

You can apply formatting to selected text or use paragraph styles to format the headings and body text of your documents—refer to Format text for more information.

NOTE  If you open an existing document, it is read-only and you must switch to edit mode before you can edit the content.
