Unlike most of the other OnSemble Islands, the Portal Text Editor island does not have a single recommendation for Island Property settings. Because this island is so versatile, we will have many recommendations for many different uses. The the most common three scenarios can be found below. As a recap, the Island Properties of an island can be found by clicking the island's Actions icon in the upper right corner, then select Edit Island Properties.
Using a PTE for Text Only
% Width - >20% - Anything smaller could take up quite a bit of vertical real estate, depending on how much text is to be displayed.
PX Height - This option will keep your text from overlapping any islands that might appear below the PTE, but you may experience scroll bars if the text is long enough to word wrap past the number of pixels configured in this setting.
Content Height - This option will avoid any scrollbars for the island, but as screen resolutions get smaller, your content might overlap any islands that appear below this PTE.
Using a PTE with Tables
% Width - Set this value to the total width of the entire island, which is generally also the total width of the entire table inside the island.
Content Height - I prefer to set my Island height to "Content Height" because all of my table and cell values are set to an exact pixel height, so I know that my table size will always control my island size.

Using a PTE with Images
% Width - For PTE islands with a single image, set the % Width of the island to the desired width of your image. When configuring the image inside the island, it's width can safely be set to 100% width, effectively taking up the entire width of the entire island. For PTE Islands with more than one image, using a Table to keep the images organized is recommended. (See hyperlink above regarding Tables in PTE islands).
Content Height - Just like in the Tables example, the island height can be set to the content's height. This way, the pixel height of the image(s) inside the island dictate the overall height of the island.
