Reverting to the old page layout editor


With Spring ’09 salesforce released the fantastic new WYSIWYG page layout editor. I love the additional functionality and flexibility that it offers, it saves a lot of time and makes my life much easier… and I guess that most of you would agree.

However there may be circumstances where you need to (or would like to) revert back to the old editor; I think most admin’s are unaware that this is even an option but a simple configuration change will bring the old page layout editor back to life!

Note: This is an org-wide change so it will impact all users

1) Go to Setup > Customize > User Interface > Enable Enhanced Page Layout Editor
2) Uncheck the box
3) Click Save
4) Done!
