guideDocument editor

The editor in this example is a feature–rich build focused on rich text editing experience similar to the native word processors. It works best for creating documents which are usually later printed or exported to PDF files.

See the tutorial to learn how to create this kind of an editor (and similar) with a custom UI layout on top of DecoupledEditor.
