Editing text on existing pages of your site is simple and intuitive. General instructions for editing text can be found in the article Edit Text. This article will focus on the larger number of formatting options available in advanced text boxes.
The formatting options are shown in the image below, and are defined from left to right. If you hover over most of the buttons with your mouse, a label will appear. Duplicate buttons will be skipped in this article.
Paragraph—In this drop-down menu, the formatting style of text can be chosen. The heading levels and paragraph styles listed will match the formatting of other text of your site. Any style chosen will be applied to the entire paragraph, not individual words or lines.
Bold—This button will turn on or off bold formatting on any highlighted text.
Italic—This button will turn on or off italic formatting on any highlighted text.
Strikethrough—This button will turn on or off strikethrough formatting on any highlighted text.
Text Color—This drop-down menu allows you to change the color of any highlighted text. You can choose from the provided colors, or click Custom to choose a color with a color picker, RGB, or HEX code.
Background Color—This drop-down menu allows you to change the color of the background behind any highlighted text. Like the Text Color, you can choose from the provided colors, or click Custom to choose a color with a color picker, RGB, or HEX code.
Insert/Edit Link—This button will open a dialogue box, where you can define the URL, displayed text, title, and target of the link.
The URL is the web address where you want the link to take the user.
The Text to Display is the text that will be the visible portion of the link (for example, Learn more in the screenshot above).
The Title is optional. Any information here will be provided to the user when they hover over the link text.
