The advanced editor supports projects and users who encode text using tags whether html or tei-xml in the following ways:
Syntax highlighting: Tags are set off from the transcribed text using color to draw the eye to them and reduce errors.
Auto completion: As a user types part of a tag, they can either press ctrl-S or the tab key and (if this is a recognized tag) the editor will automatically complete the rest of the tag.
Tag balancing: If a user opens a tag like <sup> then transcribes text, closing that tag with an incorrect closing tag (like </u>) will be highlighted in red. Autocompleting will automatically close tags, so typing </ followed by a tab will complete the </sup> tag.
Buttons: Project owners can configure the advanced editor to have commonly used tags as buttons at the top of the screen. Users can either press the button to create a tag pair and then type text within it or select existing text and press a button to wrap the text within that tag.
You configure the advanced editor buttons on the collection settings tab.
