1.2 The User Interface

TagAssist features a what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) editor that lets you edit and author HTML text in much the same way as you would in Microsoft® Word, as well as a plain-text editor that lets you work directly with the HTML code for greater control and power of expression:

A host of menu and toolbar commands and keyboard shortcuts assist you in navigating and formatting your text. The user interface is also highly customizable: Hide or show the toolbar and status bar, and rearrange the menu bar and toolbar according to your preferences.

An Autocomplete feature offers suggestions to complete your current word from glossary matches for the current query. This speeds typing, improves consistency, and saves time looking to the glossary window and back to the current sentence.
