Rich Text Editor in PeopleSoft pages

I don’t know how many are aware of this cool feature which has come up from Tools release 8.50.

For those who miss the formatting and alignment in boring peoplesoft long text boxes, that is no more the case now. Now we can enable rich text editor in peoplesoft long text fields and do all the cool stuffs like format, font, size, color, alignment, inserting images, hyperlinks, tables, bullets and much more. It’s almost competing with your wordpad. You can save all your documents from word by copying and pasting to peoplesoft page. You even have the option to take print outs and previews from the PS page.

Interested? Here is the three simple step to implement it in your application.

1.       Open the field properties.
2.       Go to “Options” tab. This will be present only for Long fields and from tools release 8.50 on-wards.
3.       Check “Enable Rich Text” check box.

That’s it. You are done. Isn't it really a cool stuff??


  1. If I use this option, I get a warning when I switch between tabs in a component. However it is working fine in correction mode. Have you faced this issue?

    Cannot change current or history records unless in Correction mode. (15,1)

  2. I am impressed. I don't think Ive met anyone who knows as much about this subject as you do. You are truly well informed and very intelligent. You wrote something that people could understand and made the subject intriguing for everyone. Really, great blog you have got here. Text marketing automation tool
