The optional Shared Space plugin makes it possible to share the same editor toolbar and bottom bar among several CKEditor instances.
For each editor instance you can define the elements that will be shared. In the example below two
classic editors are combined, sharing the same toolbar and bottom bar.
This is possible thanks to the
Inline editors can also be configured to share the toolbar and bottom bar (it is in fact possible to use a mix of classic and inline editors together as well). One of most interesting use cases for the Shared Space plugin is the possibility of providing an improved fixed user interface for the inline editor:
Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that landed the first humans, Americans Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, on the Moon on July 20, 1969, at 20:18 UTC. Armstrong became the first to step onto the lunar surface 6 hours later on July 21 at 02:56 UTC.
Armstrong spent about
three and a half two and a half hours outside the spacecraft, Aldrin slightly less; and together they collected 47.5 pounds (21.5 kg) of lunar
material for return to Earth. A third member of the mission, Michael Collins, piloted the
command spacecraft alone in lunar orbit until Armstrong and Aldrin returned to it for the trip back to
There are a few important benefits of using the Shared Spaces plugin to provide inline editor with fixed UI instead of using the Div Editing Area plugin for the same purpose:
<div>elements surrounding the editing area are needed — the original element that stores the content is used for editing. This means that styles applied to content after it is loaded into the editor stay exactly the same, providing real WYSIWYG experience with no surprises.
