At the beginning of each semester, things tend to get a bit hectic. You have new responsibilities and new tasks, old responsibilities and old tasks, and it always seems that you have an overabundance of things to do.
But there is indeed a light at the end of the tunnel. A time when things get back to "normal" and the mountain you were climbing starts to flatten out and has some nice spots to rest.
At Pharos, we strive to provide software and services that help you climb this mountain a little more easily.
But as it is with all mountains, there tend to be some rocks that make us stumble, and for Pharos and our software, this means bugs. As always, this release helps squash many of those bugs, but this particular release also includes a new text editor that fixes some issues and provides a much better experience across a variety of browsers and mobile devices!
You will see this new editor on a variety of pages including adding a note or contact, sending an e-mail, and pretty much anywhere else where you are able to enter a large portion of text.
There are still one or two places where the old editor exists, but we are working hard to migrate those instances as well and will push them out in a future update.
This new editor has many built-in features like better support when copying and pasting from Microsoft Word, better support on mobile devices, a built-in preview button (next to the Source button) and the ability to more easily edit the font, size and colors of your text.
Additionally, this new editor provides a vast array of plugins that will allow us to add more features over time so that it continues to get better. This plugin system is also very customizable allowing us to add Pharos-specific features in the future.
We believe that this new editor will provide you with an even better experience when using our system and we hope that it makes that mountain seem just a little bit smaller.
As always, if you experience any issues with this new editor, or any other pieces of the site, please don't hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or through our help center links within the Pharos 360 system.
