I have worked on a few rich text editors of the WYSIWYG flavor. Give users ability to bold text, no big deal. I have also worked on on a doc that was using
contenteditable, which was unpleasant. I am now tasked to work on an editor which should have some pretty neat feature requirements. I am pretty far down the road (in development) with an editor I picked after an evaluation process and I am seeing it was a bad decision. I need to back out of this.
Having to choose another editor I realize I don't know how to pick a rich text editor.
I'm looking for an editor (WYSIWYG or WYSIWYM, not sure of the diff) that can do some pretty cool things.
- Collaboration where multiple people are editing the document at the same time (like Google Docs)
- Commenting/tagging on specific words or sentences via highlighting (again, like Google Docs)
- In editor affordances such as floating buttons and right-click menus to add additional styling and meaning to the text
What sort of editor am I looking for?
Which editors make sense for me to consider?
What indicators of fit should I be looking for in an editor?
Thank you so much
