At "Home » Administration » Configuration » Content authoring" I added a custom text format (news).

Now when I trie to enable this for a certain content type "Newsmessage" "Home » Administration » Structure » Content types » Newsmessage » Manage fields"

I only see "Plain text" or "Filtered text (user selects text format)" as options. How do I set the "news" text format as a default for my "newsmessage" content type?

If the field is Wysiwyg, so you might want to configure the "Wysiwyg" profile settings, then it will be available in the Structure » Content types » contentType name » Manage fields.

  • Ye it's available, but I want to set it as a default

  • you can do it this way go to : /admin/config/content/ckeditor/edit/ then pick the profile that being used in your field, under basic setup . check the text format that you want to use

  • Already done. This adds it to the text format list, but doesn't make it the default (that's what I want)
