HOW TO Change the default Big String Editor in ATG Merchandising (Doc ID 1400550.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 22, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Commerce Platform - Version 10.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

You are on an Oracle ATG version 10.0.1 and higher

You would like to change the default big string editor for product long description in ATG Merchandising.

This is because your user often copies and pastes description from other documents and the default editor creates many problems such as a simple ' in Merchandising is transformed in &apos on the Storefront.

This is also an issue when handling assets in Content Administration (CA) projects. Editing a text property through the asset tab there loads HTML content into an FCKEditor control since CA does not use Adobe Flex. See Knowledge document Doc Id 1510508.1 to handle this similar issue in the case of assets in CA projects.

You have not customized the ViewMapping system to specify your own browse and edit functionality for properties of this type.
