When you're adding content to a Rich text element, you might want to add formatting or structure to your content. To do so, make use of the inline toolbar. 

Once you click inside the rich text editor, you can see additional options in the inline toolbar. You can easily structure your content using headings paragraphs, ordered or unordered nested lists, tables, links, images, components, and other items and add formatting such as bold and italics.

If you need to write content of specific length, there’s a character counter located at the bottom of the editor window to help you.

Adding links

Add hyperlinks to your content by selecting a portion of the text in the rich text editor and clicking the Insert link button.

You can choose to create the new link as one of the following:

  • Web URL link – represents hyperlinks to websites (such as https://yourwebsite.com). You can insert any type of URL as a Web link. This includes absolute and relative addresses and anchors.
  • Content item link – points to any content item within your project, limited to the currently selected language variant.
  • Email link – represents email hyperlinks (such as mailto://email@address.com). Clicking on a mailto link opens a blank new email in the visitor's default email client. You can define the recipient and subject of the email.
  • Asset link – points to any asset within your project, allowing visitors to view and download the file.

Adding images

Make your content more engaging. Add images directly in the rich-text editor by clicking Insert... > Insert image. The image will be inserted at the position of the cursor.

When selecting the image, you can either choose an existing image from your existing assets or upload a new one.

Adding components

Depending on whether you'd like to reuse your content later or not, you can either choose a component (for a one-time use), or a content item (reusable). Both of them can be added directly to a Rich text element via toolbar.

Click  Insert... > Insert new component to add a new component to the element. Choose a content type you want the component to be based on.

Component will be added to the text at the position of the cursor. To change the position of the inserted component within the Rich text element, drag & drop the component as needed.

Now you can start filling the content in. There are no restrictions on the type of components you can include in the rich text.

Adding content items

Click Insert... > Insert existing item to embed a content item into your text. The content item(s) will be inserted into the text at the position of the cursor. To change the position of the content item within the Rich text element, drag & drop the item as needed.

Identically to using Linked items elements, a tile representing the included content item will appear, showing its name, content type, workflow status, and readiness. There are no restrictions on the type of content items you can include in the rich text.

You can expand the item you added to see its content. Click Edit to open and edit the item.
