Froala Editor V4.0.10 — Improved Toolbar, Pop-up Positioning, and Much More!

Froala Editor New Release
Innovating WYSIWYG HTML editing has always been a core goal of Froala, which is why we are constantly improving our editor. And today, we’re pleased to announce the release of our tenth major product version in the last eight months. What’s new since Version 4.0.9?
We have made seventeen improvements to the features you love. Read below to learn about the recent product improvements we’ve made and why you should upgrade to Froala Editor Version 4.0.10

✨ What’s Improved 🚀


1- Improvements to the Toolbar:


First, why do users love the Froala toolbar?

The Froala smart toolbar allows you to keep a vast range of features without overwhelming the user with hundreds of buttons giving your users a better UX.

You still have the choice to switch back to the classic toolbar by simply setting the toolbarButtons API option to an array with button names that need to be displayed.

Froala has the most responsive WYSIWYG HTML Editor toolbar since you can display different buttons based on the screen size by setting the toolbarButtonsMDtoolbarButtonsSM, and toolbarButtonsXS API options.

Moreover, you can set where to display the Editor toolbar:

  1. Top (default)
  2. Bottom (By setting toolbarBottom API option to true )
  3. Sticky (By setting toolbarSticky API option to true )
  4. Inline (By setting toolbarInline API option to true )

Then, What’s improved in the Editor Toolbar?

    1. The inline toolbar width:

The inline toolbar is a floating toolbar that becomes visible when you select a text inside the editor, or when the editor is focused (e.g. by clicking it) if the toolbarVisibleWithoutSelection API option is enabled. As a result, the editor can be used to edit the content that looks just like the final page.

In the previous version, the toolbar always takes the full width of the editable content. Now, the inline toolbar width will be related to the buttons it contains.

This improvement has a great impact on the user experience and increases productivity since all buttons are available closer to users’ clicks.

    1. Sticky bottom toolbar improvements:

When you set the toolbarBottom API option to true, the editor toolbar is displayed at the bottom of the editor but it becomes hidden when you add a lot of content and scroll to the top. If you set the toolbarSticky API option to true also, in the previous release, the toolbar will remain visible on the bottom instead of becoming hidden while you scroll up through the content. However, any new content you add at the bottom will be hidden behind the toolbar until you scroll down.

In this release, the toolbar will no longer hide the new content you are adding so that you will always have full visibility within the editor.

2-  Improvements to Image Pop-up Position:

When you click on an image inside the editor a pop-up is displayed to allow you to:

  • Replace the image.
  • Edit the width and height of the image.
  • Edit the image display.
  • Edit the image alignment.
  • Edit the image ALT attribute (alternative text).
  • Add or edit image caption.
  • Remove the image.
  • Insert or edit image link.
  • Add a predefined style to the image.

If you include the TUI Scripts and the TUI Froala Plugin script

<script src=""></script>

The Froala image pop-up will also have a button to open the TUI editor that allows you to do advanced editings like cropping, flipping, rotating images, and much more.

The Froala API allows you to determine which buttons to display on the image pop-up through the imageEditButtons option. The Froala image API is very powerful to the extent that it allows the use of the Froala Editor as a standalone Javascript image uploading library.

All of these powerful features make the Froala image API even more functional, without annoying side effects like image pop-ups at locations far from where the image was originally placed. This side effect was resolved in the latest release of the Froala image API, so make sure to upgrade and enjoy this new perfect image accuracy feature!

3- Improvements to Table-Paragraph Formatting:

You might have previously tried to remove a paragraph before or after a table but it didn’t get removed. Now it will work seamlessly using the delete and backspace buttons.


… and much more!

  • Improvements to multiple videos uploading
  • Improvements to Firefox support.
  • Plus seven more tweaks and fixes!
