Working with the Text Editor

Text included in text elements on pages can be edited in the convenient inline editor by clicking directly on any text field in the page builder. Styles can be applied to selected text using the handy WYSIWYG editor:

The WYSIWYG editor not only provides the ability to set desired text formatting, but also allows for adding links to text, including the option to anchor text links to any other block on the page. In order to set/change the text formatting, you need to first select the desired portion of text and add/remove the desired formatting using the tools available on the WYSIWYG editor's panel:

Important Notes

The following heading text types can be applied to heading text:

  • Heading 1 (H1)

  • Heading 2 (H2)

  • Subheading 1 (H3)

  • Subheading 2 (H4)

As well as 6 "Body" text types for paragraph text:

  • Body Copy 1 - 6

Generally for SEO purposes, only use one H1 per page - this should represent the main heading/subject for the whole page. Also, don't skip heading levels - start with H1, then use H2, and so on. The main title of your page will be your H1, your main points the H2, and sub-points the H3, etc.

The "Link"/"Unlink" actions allow you to add a link to a desired portion of text or remove it from the text respectively. In addition to linking to a "URL", you have the option of linking to any other block on the page by selecting the "Page Block" option from the Destination dropdown menu. There's also the option to "Open in new tab" once the link is clicked:

The "Remove Styles" action (eraser icon) allows you to remove all applied formatting from the selected portion of text and set the default formatting instead.

Default Styles

Default Styles can be applied to the text types and links above, which apply to the same text type across the entire page. You can also set default styles on a device-type basis: Desktop, Tablet and Mobile. First, select the Device type and then the Text type. Set the default styles you want used for each device and text type below:

The default styles you set per device type are independent from one another I.e. you can set 20px for "Regular" text on desktop, 18 px for "Regular" text on tablet and 16px for "Regular" text on mobile and so on.

The inline text editor supports many common keyboard shortcuts enabling you to work faster, more efficiently and with increased precision, saving you time and improving your productivity.
