If you want to edit a certain page within the chosen webfolio, select
the page and click on the edit button at the bottom of the pad.
This will open up a new double sized pad for you to edit your page.
If the webfolio
has just been created there will be no text in the dialogue box, however
if you are editing a page you will see the content of that page.
This pad will help you edit text, add photos and add
media to the content of a webfolio page.
At the very top of the pad, there is a drop down box that contains all
the pages that are within the webfolio. This is
so you can quickly flick between pages that you want to modify. You can
type or paste text into your blank pages. You can also add images, multimedia,
links or info tips within your pages and against specific words or phrases.
To change the style of text in the pad is similar to editing text in
a word document. First you need to highlight the text you want
to edit and then using the options at the top of the pad you can change
Working from left to right the icons are:
- Font - select a font
by clicking on the drop down box.
- Size - change the size

colour of the text click the icon with 'A' marked on it. This will
open up colour swatches you can use.

text bold by clicking the icon marked with a 'B'. This will change
the thickness of your text.

the text italic by clicking the icon marked with a 'I'.

This will open up the previous options in the pad. Click on the dustbin
to remove the image from your webfolio.
Add multimedia element to the sidebar.
- When you click on this icon a new pad will open up that
has all your images and video files you have uploaded into PebblePad. You can also access your Flickr

Adding links/Evidence in your webfolio
- First you need to highlight the text you wish link to and
then click on the link icon, this will open up a new pad listing your
At the top of the pad you will see the text you have selected.
You can link the selected text to one of three things. You can firstly
link the text to an asset that you have
already created. To do this click on the asset and then click on
the green tick to confirm your selection.
NB To check you have linked the correct record, click on the magnifying
glass to view your page. Hovering over the hyperlinked word or phrase
will show the title and description of the asset
you have linked. NB hovering over or clicking on the word or phrase
in the webfolio
editor page will not show the linked record. You can also see all the
records, images or multimedia elements linked to your entire webfolio by showing
the Tree View when you view your webfolio. This will

Click on web link tab at the top of the pad and you will be given
a place to type in the web address. You can also copy and paste
a web address into the box if you first copy it from an appropriate source.
- The last option is the ability to link the selected
text to an email address. Click on email link and there
will be a place to type out an email address. When the viewer then
clicks on the selected text it will open up the email provider with the desired email address all ready in place.
An info tip allows you to add more details or make a comment as part
of the content of a webfolio page. When a person is
viewing your webfolio,
they can place the mouse over the selected text and the info tip will
appear. This is similar to adding comments to an area of text in Microsoft
Word or Excel.
To add an info tip highlight the desired text and click on the info
tip icon. A new pad will open with the highlighted text at
the top. You can write your additional information or comments in the
box marked info tip. Once you are happy with the content of the info tip
click the green tick icon to save.
The last 6 icons are:
- Spell check
- View this page
- Save this page.
Remember to save your work using the save
icon on a regular basis as you create a webfolio page so
you do not lose your work..
Note: Whilst the webfolio page editor
provides a really easy means of creating web pages. It is not a complex
text editor and so does not contain the kinds of Tools associated with word
processors. You cannot insert graphics, tables or other components into
