Text Element

January 2023: the current dashboard release has new graphics and some interface changes. Many screenshots still reflect the older release and will be updated shortly.

Basic Content - Text Element


Dragging and dropping a Text element into a column space will start with Lorem Ipsum placeholder text. This should be modified to fit your needs accordingly.


When the Text element is highlighted it will also be seen in the "Selected Elements" section of the Website Editor Sidebar. Clicking on "Text" in the "Selected Elements" section will open up its settings.

The Text element is also used in the Email Manager and can be managed in a similar fashion.

Edit Text

To modify the text within a Text element you can click on the "cog" icon to display its action icons then click on the "pencil" icon to open the "Edit Content Window".


Clicking the Edit Element button will open the "Edit Content Window".



Using the Shift-Enter key combination will take you to a new line while using the Enter key alone will start a new paragraph leaving a space between the line above and the new line.


Copying and pasting text from Microsoft Wordopen in new window will now be accepted as plain text in the Edit Content window.
