How do I edit an article?

Updated on

When you want to edit an article, you have several options for doing so:

Edit an article from the Content Management Area (two options)

Option 1: Select Edit on Web or Edit on Desktop

Click one of the icons to the right of the article title to edit on web or desktop.


Option 2: click 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 the published site

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.

Edit an article from the Launch Pad in the desktop editor

Can you not copy and paste into an article

@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?
