Removing Format

This website contains links to software which is either no longer maintained or will be supported only until the end of 2019 (CKFinder 2). For the latest documentation about current CKSource projects, including software like CKEditor 4/CKEditor 5, CKFinder 3, Cloud Services, Letters, Accessibility Checker, please visit the new documentation website.

If you look for an information about very old versions of CKEditor, FCKeditor and CKFinder check also the CKEditor forum, which was closed in 2015. If not, please head to StackOverflow for support.

CKEditor 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 Format toolbar button. All text styling will be removed and the text will be displayed in the default font.

The figure below shows a sample text with some styling — typeface, font size, italics, colors — applied.

Sample text formatted with CKEditor styles

After you select the text and use the Remove Format function, all text styling is gone and the text is displayed with default paragraph formatting.

Note that this applies to style properties that are applied to the HTML source code by using the CSS stylesheet rules. This category includes most text styling methods as described in the Text Styling section (without paragraph format) as well as text alignment and indentation.
