Abbreviation Expansion in the WYSIWYG Editor
Last Updated: 17 Dec 2015
When using the WYSIWYG Editor, abbreviations can be automatically expanded using Built-in Relations from a Thesaurus. This means that when a user enters an abbreviation into the WYSIWYG Editor, a pop-up will appear allowing them to replace the abbreviation with the full term. This is especially useful when creating abbreviations for regularly used, lengthy terms.

- Go to the Global Preferences screen in the System Configuration section of the system.
- In the WYSIWYG Plugins field, select the Matrix Expand Keywords plug-in, if it is not yet selected.
