Guide to configure TinyMCE 5 toolbar with the full set of buttons

How to configure TinyMCE toolbar

After you installed the standard TinyMCE verson or the one created with Builder you may need to customize the TinyMCE toolbar.

To configure the toolbar in TinyMCE use the special config parameter: toolbar. This is a line that contains button names separated by spaces. To insert a separator, use | as the button name.

To use some buttons you need to connect the corresponding plugin. For example, the media or link buttons require connecting the plugins of the same names included in the standard package. And if you need the ImgPen image editor button, you need to download and connect this plugin, if you didn't do that using Builder.

Specify toolbar buttons. All button names are listed in the list of buttons.

tinymce.init({
    selector: "#editor",
    plugins: "image link media lists Translator ImgPen",
    toolbar: "fontselect fontsizeselect formatselect | bold italic strikethrough forecolor backcolor | " +
             "link image ImgPen media | alignleft aligncenter alignright alignjustify | " +
             "numlist bullist | outdent indent removeformat | Translator TranslatorConf TranslatorReverse"
});

The above config makes TinyMCE look as follows: TinyMCE 5 toolbar screenshot

Multi-line toolbar can be made using the toolbar as an array, not as a string:

tinymce.init({
    selector: "#editor",
    plugins: "image link media lists Translator ImgPen",
    toolbar: [
        "fontselect fontsizeselect formatselect | bold italic strikethrough forecolor backcolor",
        
        "link image ImgPen media | alignleft aligncenter alignright alignjustify | " +
        "numlist bullist | outdent indent removeformat | Translator TranslatorConf TranslatorReverse"
    ]
});

Now your toolbar looks like this: TinyMCE 5 toolbar screenshot
