VisualEditor - Toolbar - Undo-redo.png
Jijjiirrama uumne "Gaabbuu (undo)" fi "irra deebi'uu (redo)":

VisualEditor Toolbar Headings-en.png
Baafata gadbuusaa "Headings": baafatni kun sadarkaa mata-duree (level) akka jijjiirruf nu tajaajila. The normal format for text is "Paragraph".

VisualEditor Toolbar Formatting-en.png
Formatting: Clicking the "A" opens a menu. For any item to have an affect, you must have first selected (highlighted) some text.
  • The "Bold" item (B) bolds the selected text.
  • The "Italic" item (I) italicizes the selected text.
  • The "Superscript" item (S2) causes the selected text to appear smaller than surrounding text and to be slightly higher than the surrounding text.
  • The "Subscript" item (S2) causes the selected text to appear smaller than surrounding text and slightly lower than the surrounding text.
  • The "Strikethrough" item (S) adds a solid bar through the selected text.
  • The "Computer code" item (a set of curly brackets: {}) changes the font of the selected text to a monospaced font, which sets it apart from surrounding (proportionally spaced) text.
  • The "Underline" item (U) adds a solid line beneath the selected text.
  • The "Language" item (Aあ) allows you to label the language (for example, Japanese) and direction (for example, right-to-left) of the selected text.
  • The final item (" ⃠ "), called "Clear styling", removes all character formatting from the selected text, including links.

VisualEditor - Toolbar - Linking.png
Linking tool: The chain is the linking tool. Clicking on it (usually after selecting some text) opens the link dialog.

VisualEditor - Cite Pulldown.png
Cite menu: The "Cite" menu is used to add inline citations (also called "footnotes" or "references"). All projects have access to "Basic" reference formatting and the ability to "Re-use" citations, using this menu. This menu also gives you quick access to local citation templates, if these are enabled on your wiki.

(Instructions for adding local citation templates to the Cite menu at a specific wiki are available at VisualEditor/Citation tool.)

VisualEditor Toolbar Lists and indentation-en.png
Lists & indentation: The first two items allow you to format text as either a "Bullet list" or a "Numbered list". The last two items allow you to decrease or increase the indentation level of list items.

VisualEditor Insert Menu-en.png
Dabalata: baafatn gadbuusaa "Dabalata" kana kamshaa Viizyuwaal'Ediiterii irraa jiru, filannoowwan dhangii kan dabalataatti sin geessa.

Sajoon "Miidiyaa" (suura tulluuwwanii), qaaqa miidiyaa bana.

  • The "Template" icon (a puzzle piece) allows you to edit templates.
  • The "Comment" item (a speech balloon) allows you to insert comments that are not visible to readers; these comments can be seen only when in edit mode.
  • The "Formula" icon (Σ) opens the formula inserter dialog.

Sajoon "Tarreeffama wabiiwwanii" (mallattoo kitaaba sadi'iiti), qaaqaa wabii jiran agarsiisu bana.

  • The "<visualeditor-mwhieroinspector-title>" icon (an ankh symbol - ☥) allows you to enter the hieroglyphics inserter. (See below.)
  • The "Special character" icon (Ω) allows you to insert some special characters. (See immediately below.)

VisualEditor Toolbar SpecialCharacters-en.png
Special character insertion: The "Special character" icon on the "Insert" menu, when clicked, displays a dialog showing many special characters. By clicking on a specific character, you place it into the text. These special characters include some standard symbols, accents, and mathematical symbols. (This list may be customized locally. See VisualEditor/Special characters for instructions.)

VisualEditor cancel save-en.png
The Page options menu is to the left of the Save page button. On the Page options menu are options to adjust page settings, such as whether the page is a redirect, or how it is indexed; to add, edit, or delete categories; and to see, using the "Language" item, the list of articles on the same subject that are in other languages. You can also switch (one-way only) from VisualEditor to the classic wikitext source editor without losing the editing work you've done.

Jijjiirama Olkaawuu[edit | edit source]

Erga barreeffama jijjiirtee fixxee booda, qabduu magariisa "Fuula olkaayi" kan kamshaa irraa jiru irratti cuqaasuu dandeessa. Yoo jijjiirrama hin uumne ta'e, qabduu kanaratti cuqaasuu hin dandeessu. To cancel all your editing changes, just close your browser window.
VisualEditor cancel save-en.png

Pressing the green "Save page" button opens a dialog. You can then enter a brief summary of your actions, mark your edit as minor, and/or add the page to your Watchlist. The box for the summary is the equivalent of the Summary (?): field in the wikitext editor.

You can also review your changes to be sure they will work as intended before saving your changes, similar to the "Show changes" button in the wikitext editor. The "Cancel" button returns you to the page you were editing. You can save all of your changes later.

VisualEditor save dialog-en.png

Liinkii Jijjiiruu[edit | edit source]

VisualEditor - Toolbar - Formatting - Link.png
Liinkii galchuuf, sajoo "Liinkii" (mallattoo cancalaa) kan kamshaarra jirutti fayyadamu dandeenya ykn ammoo qaxxaamura kiyiboordii  Ctrl+K (or  Command+K on a Mac) fayyadamuun ni danda'ama.

If you select (highlight) text or place your cursor within a word, and then press the "Link" button, a link will be inserted using that text or word. In most cases, when creating internal links (links to other pages in the same wiki) you do not select text. But when creating external links, in most cases you do select text before starting the linking process, and text is probably something you just typed.

VisualEditor - Link editing inline 2.png
Qabduus ta'ee ykn qaxxaamura kiyiboordittis yoo fayyadamne, gara lachaniinuu qaaqaa bakka itti liinkii galchinutu banama. Viizyuwaal'Ediiteriin liinkii keessaa (internal links) irratti si gargaaruu yaala. Liinkiin keessaa liinkii barreeffama Wikipidiyaa wajjin kan wal qabsiifame dha.

VisualEditor will try to help with internal links by looking for likely matches as you begin to type.

VisualEditor - Link editing inline box.png
Once you have entered or selected the link, you complete the linking process by pressing  Enter, pressing the "Done" button, or just clicking outside of the box. Your link will immediately appear on the VisualEditor page, but it will not be saved until you save the entire page.

VisualEditor - External link.png
To link to a web page on another website, the process is the similar: you enter a URL in the box, and it will be added as an "External link".

VisualEditor - Link editing inline.png
Liinkii duraan jiru jijjiiruuf ykn balleessuuf, dura liinkii sanarratti cuqaasi. Itti aansun sajoo bukke sanatti sii dhufu "Link" irratti cuqaasi. Sajoo kana kamshaarraa cuqaasus dandeessa. Qaxxaamura kiyiboodii  Ctrl+K ttis fayyadamuun ni danda'ama.

In the dialog, you can then change where the link goes. Or you can remove the link altogether by pressing the "Remove" button) in the lower left corner of the dialog. You can also open the link's target in another window by clicking on the "Open" button. (You might do this to check if an external link is valid.)

VisualEditor - Editing references 6.png
Sajoo wabii irratti cuqaasun qaaqni akka banamu godha. Qaaqani kun iddoo itti wabii barreessinu qaba.

Many wikis use templates to format references automatically. If a template is used in your reference, then all the text in the template will be highlighted when you click on the reference information.

Qabiyyee templeetii jijjiiruuf, sajoo Template irratti cuqaasi. Kunis, ediiterii xiqqoo kan tempileetii irratti jijjirtu sii bana.

VisualEditor - Editing References - Cite Web.png
If, instead of the "Basic" icon (bookmark), what appears when you click on a reference is an icon for a standard template for citations, clicking on that icon will take you directly to the template mini-editor dialog.

VisualEditor - Editing references 5.png
Inside the template mini-editor, you can add or remove types of information or change current content. Only fields (template parameters) that are used (have content) should be shown, initially. To add fields, click on "Add more information", which is at the very bottom of the mini-editor.

VisualEditor - Apply changes.png
Click on "Apply changes" when you're done.

Wabii duraan jirutti fayyadami[edit | edit source]

VisualEditor references more.png
If the page already contains a citation that applies to the text you want to source, then you can choose to re-use the existing citation.

To re-use an existing reference, place your cursor in the body of the text where you want to add a new reference (number) for that citation. Then click on the "Re-use" item from the "Cite" menu.

VisualEditor - Editing references 18.png
In the Reference dialog, look at the list for the reference you want to reuse, and select it. If there are many references, you can use the search box (labeled "What do you want to reference?") to list only those references that include certain text.

Wabii Haaraa Galchuu[edit | edit source]

VisualEditor references more.png
To add a citation using the "Cite" menu, place your cursor where you want to add it in the text. Then on the "Cite" menu, select the appropriate item.

VisualEditor Reference List Insert Menu-en.png
If there isn't already a list of references on the page (for example, if you're adding the first reference for the page), you need to specify where the list of references, and their text, will be displayed to the reader.

Place the cursor where you want to display references (usually at the bottom of the page), open the "Insert" menu and click the "<visualeditor-dialog-referencelist-title>" icon (three books.

VisualEditor - Editing references 11.png
If you are using different groups of references (which is unusual), you can specify a group in this dialog, to display only those references that belong to that group.

The final step, in the References list dialog, is to click "<visualeditor-dialog-referencelist-insert-button>".

Baafata waraabitti fayyadamuu[edit | edit source]

VisualEditor - Editing References - Cite Pulldown.png
Your local wiki may have added extra citation templates to this menu. This offers quick access to the most-used citation templates. (Instructions for adding extra citation templates to your local wiki are available at VisualEditor/Citation tool.)

VisualEditor - Editing references - Cite book required fields.png
Clicking on a template icon such as "Cite book" will take you into the template mini-editor for that template. Important information fields may be marked with an asterisk. While the most common fields will be shown, not all of them are required.

Faayilii filachuuf, thumbnail irraatti cuqaasi. This places the image onto the page you are editing.

VisualEditor - Media editing 2.png

After the image you selected is inserted on the page, another dialog will automatically open. This dialog allows you to add (and edit) the caption of the image. The caption can contain formatting and links.
VisualEditor - Media editing 6.png

The media dialog also allows you to add alternative text captions, to help users who use screen readers, or who have disabled image display.
Media editing 7.png

You can also set various parameters for the image in the "Advanced settings" window. These include the alignment, the type, and size of the image.

Editing media galleries[edit | edit source]

To edit an existing gallery in VisualEditor, click anywhere in that gallery. Then, near the bottom of the gallery, click the gallery icon (a set of photos). This brings up the gallery inserter dialog, with the full list of images included in the gallery.
VisualEditor - Gallery2.png
The gallery inserter dialog is currently a simple box that allows you to edit existing galleries using wikitext markup. To add a new image to an existing gallery, type the file name, followed by a bar (|) and the caption for that image. You must put each image in the gallery on its own line. You can also edit this list to remove or rearrange images or to change captions.

When you click the "Done" button, you will exit the gallery dialog. You should then see your changes, with the gallery as it will now appear to readers.

Remember that exiting the gallery inserter dialog does not save your changes. As with other changes made using VisualEditor, you must save the entire page in order to save your work.

VisualEditor - Category editing 1.png
Qabduun "Categories" qaaqa bana. Qaaqni kun garee jiru tarreessee kan agarsiisuu fi garee haaraa uumuf kan nu gargaaru dha.

You have the option of setting or changing the general (default) sorting key, which used to determine where the page appears when listed with other pages in the same category.

For example, the default sorting key for the article "George Washington" is "Washington, George", and so in the category "Presidents of the United States", the article is listed under the letter "W", not the letter "G".

VisualEditor - Category editing 3.png
Garee haaraa uumuf, maqaa isaa bakka "Add a category" galchi. Yoo feete garee haaraa uumuu ykn ammo kan jiru keessaa filachuu dandeessa.

To edit a page's settings, click to open the "Page options" menu, in the toolbar, and select the "Page settings" button.

VisualEditor Page Settings-en.png
The "Page settings" button opens a dialog that shows several options.

VisualEditor Page Settings Redirects-en.png
You can make a page a redirect to another page by checking the "Redirect this page to" checkbox, and then typing the name of the page to which you want the reader to be sent when he/she tries to go to the page that you're editing.

At the bottom is the option to prevent page renames from updating this redirect. This is very rarely used.

VisualEditor Page Settings TOC-en.png
You can change whether the page shows a Table of Contents by selecting one of these three buttons. The default option is "If needed", which shows a Table of Contents if there are three or more headings.

VisualEditor - Page Settings Edit Links.png
You can make a page not show edit links next to each section header by checking this checkbox.

VisualEditor Apply Changes-en.png
Click "Apply changes" when you're done editing the Page options to return to the page editor.
