Text blocks

If you write your texts directly in the Gutenberg editor, keep in mind that a new "block" is added with every return you give for a new paragraph

body text

Above the block you will find the Block editor with the formatting options for the text: [1] alignment, [2] bold, [3] italics, [4] add links, and [5] strikethrough

In the Block Sidebar you will find the specific layout settings for the selected block. Font Size [6] and Drop Cap [7] With Color settings you determine the text and background color yourself, you can enter predefined colors here or of your own choice. To do this, select the custom color picker [8]. In the pop-up that appears, you can enter the desired color code.

Sometimes writing or editing a text requires a more flexible approach. A simple solution was to use the classic block [9] but this option will soon be discontinued. You can of course write a text in another editor, for example Word or Google Docs, and then copy and paste it into the Edit as HTML under options. This way you avoid taking the HTML styling of your original document with you.



Headings or headings and subheadings make a text more readable. You can choose between a number of sizes with H1 being the largest and H6 being the smallest
In Text Alignment you determine the position of your heading; centered, left or right aligned.

* Font, size and color are determined in the regular theme options


Block for adding ordered (numbers) or unordered (bullet points) lists. You can use indent for sub-items within a list. With outdent you make it a regular list again.



The table block can be used to display numbers, equations or other data that you want to present in a clear way.

There are a few styling options. In the Block Editor you can choose between regular or stripes [1], the regular alignment options [2] You can add or remove rows or columns [3] and there are a limited number of text editing options [4]. In the Table Settings [5] you can choose a fixed or variable width.



With the Button Block you create a button that generates a link to another page. The text [1] and URL [2] of the button can be typed into the button and the URL can be added next to the link icon.

You can also use bold, italic & Use crossed out [3] for the text of the button.

In the Color Settings you can determine the color of both the button [4] and the text [5]. If you choose a color combination that is defined in Gutenberg as difficult to read you will receive a warning [6]
