How to edit an article when using the ScreenSteps web application

You can edit an article in one of two ways...

1. Select Edit on Web or Edit on Desktop from the article action menu


2. OR click on the article title > Edit option in the article Quick View


You can use either editor to create content. If you want to grab new screenshots, open up the desktop editor.

Edit an article from your knowledge base

Click "Edit content on web" or "Edit in desktop"

If you are logged in to your ScreenSteps account, and you visit your knowledge base that your readers are viewing, you have the option to edit on the web or edit in the desktop. Just look for the blue bar along the top.

To see the edit options, you must have an article opened up in the knowledge base and be logged into the ScreenSteps web browser application.

@Millie - Yes, you can copy and paste content into an article. What type of content are you trying to paste in and are you trying to paste into the article editor in the web browser or the ScreenSteps desktop application?
