The article body holds the bulk of the content of an article, commonly known as below-the-fold.
The content on this page is meant to look mostly like what the rendered page will be like, except for some minor spacing differences. When elements are selected, an Element block will appear above the element or in its parent's one, allowing the element to be edited or its place in the article structure to be changed. Tables have an extra column to allow rows to be selected, and selected elements in an aside will be expanded to almost fill the width of page to give space to their edit boxes. Press Ctrl | control+F to open a search box for the page.
The introduction belonging to the article has a greyed backgrounds to indicate that it is edited in the Article head page for the article itself.
For the details of how to edit articles, see Editing help.

There are some links for special navigation between page areas and checkboxes for exposing the hover buttons.
|a||Spikes||Spike number | number of items. Links to each spike with items|
|b||Sources||Link to the sources for the document. Includes the number of sources. The target of this link links back to this|
|c||Legend||Link to the floating edit bar legend. The target of this link links back to this|
|d||Elements||Checkbox to show the indicators for where the hover buttons are above. Press Alt | option+Shift+_ to toggle|
|e||Children||Checkbox to show the hover buttons of all the children of the current element. Press Alt | option+Shift+# to toggle|
|f||△||Link to the top of the page|
|g||Hover button||The hidden button that is shown when hovered over or tabbed to. When clicked on, its element is made current. They are prefixed with a checkbox for use with the multi-delete facility|
|h||Indicator||Partially transparent square to hover over to show the hover button. Green if the element is enabled, and red for automatically disabled. Usually at the start side for an element, a couple of centimetres in for an introduction, and at the end side for non-visual parent elements like columns|
Hover buttons are the key to allowing the page to look almost like how the resulting page will look, while providing ready access to elements for editing. For tables, a special column is placed at the end to allow hover buttons for selecting rows. If a hover button has a ʘ after the name, there are review notes for it or a descendant.
Hover buttons can sometimes make it difficult to access an underlying element that still has active functionality while editing, like the labels on a figure. To use the link on a PC desktop, click-and-hold on the hover button, then move the mouse cursor off it and release, leaving the hover button with focus. Then press the Tab key to move focus to the link, then press the Enter | return key to go to the link's target.
The element block that appears for a selected element or its ancestors provides information about the element and gives access to operations centred upon it.
Selecting an aside or columns will leave its child elements at their normal width, but when one of those children is selected, it will be displayed at almost full page width so its editing box is not cramped.
There are other items at the bottom of the page that enable accessing source articles and provide extra information for the page.
|1||Sources||List of jumps to the sources available for content to import into the article. If a master manager, additional articles can be added, up to three. The source article's page includes a jump back under its introduction line for each article sourcing from it|
|2||Legend||List of the symbols used in an action bar of an element, and their purpose. Links back to a the Legend link under the page introduction line|
|3||Available elements||List of elements that can be inserted inline in rich text elements using the codes or letters provided. Links back to Elements link above the editing field for the current element|
Having selected an article to be used as a source, and jumping to it from the Sources list, under its Navigation bar there is a list of jumps to each article for which it is a source, allowing a quick return to the article requiring the content.
