Title says it all, is it possible to have a different editor for each user within Joomla?

For example,

User 1 uses the TinyMCE editor while User 2 uses RokPad editor.

Is this possible?

I'm using Joomla 3.5.1.

Yes no problem at all. To do this:

  • Go to to your Joomla! back-end,
  • Install the editors you need via Extensions > Manage > Install,
  • Then for each user you will have to set their editor. To do this go to:

    Users > Manage, from here select the user, click the "Basic Settings" Tab and select
    the editor in Editor field.

  • Save and close.
  • Great! Completly overlooked that setting. Thank you for pointing it out!

  • @Lynda, to extend Mike's answer, a user can also select on his own, his editor of choice, from his user profile settings.
