The paragraph is one of the simplest blocks and also one of the most commonly used. Wherever you need a piece of text on the page, you will use this block.

When a new paragraph block is created, it contains a "Add some text..." message that you can change. Click on the text, delete it and enter (or paste) your text. Simple as that.

Rich Text

Paragraph block can contain rich text. So, some words can be in bold or italic or underlined (or a combination of these). You can use the following keyboard shortcuts.

  • To make a part of the text bold, select the text and click CTRL+B (Win) or CMD+B (Mac).
  • To make a part of the text italic, select the text and click CTRL+I (Win) or CMD+I (Mac).
  • To make a part of the text underline, select the text and click CTRL+U (Win and Mac).

To reverse this (for example, make bolded text unbolded), select the text and click the same keyboard shortcut again.

Link Adding Links

This block type has a link icon in the toolbar. To add a link, first select a part of the text that will be the anchor of the link. Then, click on the Link icon to open a prompt where you can enter the URL of your link. To change or delete the link, click on the link to place the cursor inside the link and then click the Link icon again. It will open a new window where you can change the link, change the target window for the link and also remove the link.
