        There isn't much in the Editor (code) wise that controls those buttons, they are passed through to the native document.execCommand because the A-Grade browsers actually support them quite well.


        Can you give me a little more info on what exactly you are looking fo?

          Actually I would like to create a new button that sets ALL the text in
          the editor to bold, wether it is selected or not.

          Do you think this is possible?

            Create your new button, then inside that buttons click event you could do something like this:

            var html = myEditor.getEditorHTML();
            myEditor.setEditorHTML('<strong>' + html + '</strong>');

            That won't produce semantic code, but it will make everything bold..

            You could also attach some CSS to the body of the iframe, then on save, wrap the html from the editor in another element with that css applied..

            Does that help?

              I didn't find any example dealing with editor's content modification.
              Would you be interested in my code, to put it for example on your blog?
