Copying and Pasting Text
It is possible to copy and paste text from an external editor such as Microsoft Word. When you do this we retain permitted formatting, BOLD, ITALIC, UNDERLINING, and bullet points. Similarly any text that is marked with a 'Heading 2' or 'Heading 3' style will be converted correctly. As it is good practice to only have one Heading 1 as the title text for your page and we already display one of these on each page, anything that is a 'Heading 1' will be converted to a 'Heading 2' .
Text Editing Tips
- If you press shift + enter this will create a break on to the next line rather than just enter which creates a new paragraph with a gap above it.
- Each Text content item can only have one image, but you can stack multiple Text items on top of each other if you wish to display more.
- To enhance the way that your shop displays in searches such as on Google, you should have a logical structure for your headings. By default each page already has a top level heading (H1) which displays the main title of the page. In your content you should use H2 for subheadings, and H3 if a further level of sub heading is desired.
