After July 2021, the 2.3.x release line will no longer receive quality updates, or user guide updates. PHP 7.3 reaches end of support in December 2021 and Adobe Commerce 2.3.x reaches end of support in September 2022. We strongly recommend planning your upgrade now to Adobe Commerce 2.4.x to help maintain PCI compliance.

Using the Editor

The information on this page is intended for Adobe Commerce 2.3 customers who are on an extended support contract. The Adobe Commerce Merchant Documentation for current releases is published on the Adobe Experience League.

The editor gives you the ability to enter and format while working in a What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) view of the content. If you prefer to work directly with the underlying HTML code, you can easily change modes. The editor can be used to create content for pages, blocks, and product descriptions. When working on product detail, access the editor by clicking Show / Hide Editor.

TinyMCE 4 is now the default WYSIWYG editor. TinyMCE 3 is now deprecated, but can be enabled in the configuration if required for previous customizations.
