How to control TinyMCE menu items for a specific user ?

I have been looking at this documentation about the wysiwyg editor :

It says that : "The administrator has full discretion over which WYSIWYG features appear for certain users or groups. This is important for ensuring consistency of style throughout the site, as well as creating a simple environment for less tech-savvy users.

I cannot figure out how to do this at the user level. I have one user, who is not an administrator, who I would like to give the ability to use some of the extra WYSIWYG icons. How do I do this at the user level?

Thanks for the help.

    Hi Jeff,

    I think the KB may be a bit misleading here, as the WYSIWYG is primarily customized via the groups, which you can assign users to for their WYSIWYG settings.

    So you would need to create a 1-member group to put that person in?

    If the desired WYSIWYG settings are applicable only for that one user, then yes that would be the correct way of doing this.
