-

View Source: view and edit the HTML source of the step's content directly.

-

Advanced Paste: when pasting rich text content into the editor you may want to use these buttons to paste as plain text (without styling) or to paste from Word and keep the content styles intact.

-

Undo/Redo: undo changes to the content or redo changes which were previously undone.

-

Clear Styling: remove all content styling, such as text color, background color, font size and type etc.

NOTE: you can also right-click a table in the content to open the table properties as well as cell and row level options.
