Smart.Editor has a Toolbar that contains items which when clicked execute an action. Actions can insert/delete content or apply styles to the current text selection.

Context Menu

Smart.Editor has a built in context menu that is available by default. When the user right clicks with the mouse inside the Editor, the context menu opens. A different options list is displayed depending on the target. However the options list can be customized. See here

Mobile optimized

The Angular Editor is responsive and has a device-optimized look and behavior on PCs, tablets and mobile phones.


Angular Editor has a property called 'sanitized', which determines whether the value is sanitized from XSS content or not. When enabled scripts and other XSS vulnerabilities are not allowed to exist inside the Editor's as HTML content.

Paste Options

  • prompt - Prompts the user with a Dialog Window to choose the pasting format before the action is executed.
  • plainText - Pastes the copied content as plain text.
  • keepFormat - Pastes the copied content by keeping the format intact.
  • cleanFormat - Pastes the copied content by removing any formatting.

Find & Replace

The Find and Replace toolbar actions triggers a dialog window that allows to search for a specific text inside Editor's content. The matches found are displayed inside a list box and can be replaced by another string also defined by the user in a separate text box.

Search Bar

An additional Search bar is also available for users who want to quickly find the desired text inside the Editor's content section.

Markdown Editor

Smart.Editor is both an HTML and Markdown editor. By setting the editMode to "markdown" the Editor accepts markdown content that is parsed to HTML in Preview Mode or Split Mode. This allows the users to write markdown files and preview the result and when done simply export the content as MD file via the exportData method.

Smart.Editor can contain videos as well as images, tables and hyperlinks. Videos can be uploaded from local storage or YouTube embed.

Iframe mode

Smart.Editor's content section can be easily stylied or modifed via CSS or Javascript. However the Editor has an additional iframe mode which places the Editor's content inside an iframe which provides an isolated DOM that does not allow styles and scripts to leak in.


You can choose from more multiple Material UI & Bootstrap color schemes. Custom themes is supported, too.


Users from different locales can format numbers, dates, currency, etc. to suit their language preferences.


Each string used in the Editor can be localized. That happens by using two properties - 'locale' and 'messages'. .
