It's possible to have different config for ckeditor for civievent. See https://yoursite.org/civicrm/admin/ckeditor?preset=civievent. (Replace yoursite with your actual site.)

  • Thanks! Even though we have CKEditor enabled, I think our events might be using TinyMCE because the wysiwyg ribbon doesn't match the settings I'm seeing in the ckeditor config

  • actually I think the issue is that link brings me to the config for CKEditor4 and the default (in admin/customize data/display preferences) is set to CKEditor5. Is there a different link to the config for 5?

  • Oh that makes sense. Looking at lab.civicrm.org/extensions/ckeditor5 it says a niche feature of ckeditor4 was a UI for configuration. The toolbar IS configured through a javascript array so it would be possible to find a way to customise that (but there is no current plan / demand for this). Another editor worth trying is summernote: lab.civicrm.org/extensions/summernote
