What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Focus, like magic, is hard work. You're a real gem for going this far.

4. Wind down and recharge

In your off time, schedule Sessions to remove work, social and news apps so you can spend time with family, pursue a hobby or dream, or simply wind down (really).

5. Sleep better, more consistently

Science shows you should power screens down at least 1 hour before sleep. Enforce this with our Sleep schedule, so you don't have to remember.
