With the Formatting toolbar in Cadmus, you have all the functionality you need to structure your writing effectively and add images to your assignment.

Working in Cadmus might feel a bit different to the other text editors you’re used to. Cadmus uses preset formatting, and you’ll notice there aren’t any pages. This means you don’t need to spend time changing things like fonts and margins - you can just focus on your content.

Formatting Toolbar in the Cadmus Student Environment

Structure your writing using the formatting toolbar

Using the toolbar at the top of the Student Environment, you can:

  • Create titles, headings and block quotes using the text style dropdown
  • Bold, italicise, underline and strikethrough text
  • Align and indent text
  • Create numbered, bulleted and check lists
  • Highlight text and change font colours
  • Add Images
  • Undo and Redo

Images

By clicking the Image icon in the Formatting Toolbar, you can add images to your work. When the upload area comes up in your document, you can upload an image from your computer.

Image icon and image upload area

Clicking on the Image icon brings up the upload area

When you click on your uploaded image, the Image Toolbar will pop up. From here, you can:

  • Change the image’s size
  • Toggle the image caption on and off
  • Remove the image

Image sizes

Once you’ve added an image to your work, there are 3 sizes you can choose from:

  • Fit to text: Your image will resize to fit the width of your text
  • Full Width Banner: Your image will stretch to the full width of the panel. This is great for section breaks
  • Original Image Size: Your image will try to maintain it’s true size. If it’s too large for the screen, it’ll fit to width of the panel
