Select and Remove

Selecting content

When you want to apply a formatting method to a larger text fragment, you can select it. PetroWiki supports a few selection methods that you can use.

Selecting All Document Contents

To select all contents of the document, click inside PetroWiki editing area and press the Select toolSelect All toolbar button. All document elements, including text, images, or tables, will become highlighted. You can now apply whatever action you wish to the selected content.

Select All Example

Selecting a Document Fragment

A popular way to select document fragments is to use your mouse. Keeping the left mouse button pressed, drag your mouse over the document content that you want to select. The selection process will finish, when you release the mouse button. A document fragment selected with your mouse will become highlighted. You can also select individual words by double-clicking them.

Select a fragment example

Using Shift+Arrow lets you select the text by letters and the Ctrl+Shift+Arrow — by words.

The Shift+Home combination selects the text from the cursor to the start of the current line, while the Shift+End — from the cursor to the end of the current line.

The combination of Ctrl+Shift and the Home or End keys let you select the text from the cursor to the beginning or end of the document, respectively.

The Shift+PgDn and Shift+PgUp shortcuts select a text fragment of approximately the length of the editing area starting from the cursor and going down and up the text, respectively.

Removing Format

PetroWiki makes it easy to not only change the style of your text, but it also makes it equally easy to remove these styles.

To remove text styling applied to the document text, select the text fragment and press the Remove tool Remove Format toolbar button. All text styling will be removed and the text will be displayed in the default font.
