- * The buttons use a layout similar to Microsoft Word and work exactly like they do in the forum, so most of you should be quite comfortable using the wiki editor.
* To format your text, simply select the text first, then select the button. If you forget to select the text, an example will be shown in its place.
* There's no need for documentation. Just place the mouse over the button and helpful text will be shown. Just like MS Word.
* When done, use "Show Preview" to view / correct and "Save Page" to commit the change. This is the same as "Preview" and "Submit" in the forum.

If you are already an editor, feel free to tryout this update. Please edit Mutual fund on the Bogleheads Wiki. Also, any of the pages shown here.
If you wanted to edit the wiki, but felt it was too complicated to use, please try this new toolbar. All you need to do is PM Barry Barnitz and ask to be an editor.
