If you are copying text from another website or document, we recommend first pasting the text into Notepad to strip out any formatting then copy and paste it from Notepad into the text area.
You can also manually change the text format by highlighting the text you would like to edit and use the various options available on the text editor bar (E.g. font, font size, font colour, dropshadow text alignment, etc.)
If you want to undo or redo the changes that you have made, click on the buttons highlighted below.
To link text, first highlight the text you want to link, then click on the Link icon.

You can change the format of hyperlinked texts on your whole site by updating site-wide text settings. For instructions on how this is done, please refer to this support article.
Adding a Table
You can easily add a table to your text area by clicking on the Table icon and setting the appropriate number of rows and columns.
Once you click OK, this will insert a table into your text area.
The columns in the table will resize to fit your text while typing - to move to the next column or row to enter your text, simply click into it.
To add or delete rows or columns, right click in the table where you wish to add or delete them and select the action or item from the menu.
Text Widget Settings
To edit text settings click the settings cog icon.
This will open the Text Settings window where you can set a background colour to your text widget, add padding, or apply a drop shadow. You can also set the text to be hidden on mobile by ticking on the Hide on mobile box highlighted below.
Click Save and your changes will be applied to the Text widget.
