Setting editor preferences for email messages

Several features available in the Message Editor give you control over how often the system requires you to confirm every selection or format change. Frequent confirmation requests can be time-consuming and distracting. To limit how often the system interrupts you to confirm your actions, you can set editing preferences. You set a preference for each of several features separately.

About this task

Editing preferences apply to the following features.

  • Format options for social sharing links

You access editing preferences through a link that is visible in the Message Editor toolbar.


  1. In the Message Editor toolbar, click Editor preferences.
  2. For each feature that is listed, indicate how often you want the system to confirm your actions while you are editing a communication.
