  • To edit the module, do one of the following:
    • Double-click inside the module.
    • Click on the module and then click “Edit” (3).

Rich Text toolbar

When you edit Rich Text module content, the Rich Text toolbar will be available. It contains a number of tools you can use to format text. These tools are described below. Please see “Custom style properties” for more information about formatting text within Rich Text modules.

Resizing the Rich Text module

Resize manually

When a user manually resizes a module, there is an important behavior to note: 

Minimum Height Constraint: Regardless of how much the module is resized, there is a minimum height that it will maintain. This minimum height is determined by the content within the module. The purpose of this constraint is to ensure that all content remains visible and accessible, preventing any content from being hidden due to resizing. This ensures that the module cannot be resized to a height shorter than the minimum height.

  • Resize manually by hovering the mouse over one of the module’s borders or corners (1). The mouse cursor will change to an arrow pair.

  • Click and drag the boundary until the module is the desired size (see below).

NOTE: Modules resized to a size too small to display the text they contain will automatically expand to a minimum height until all contained text is visible.

Resize automatically

Automatic resizing is designed to ensure that a module adapts its size to always show all its content, and automatically changes its size to accommodate the content added in the module.

This feature maintains content visibility, preventing the module from becoming shorter than the minimum height needed to display all content. Thus, the content remains fully visible without user intervention, eliminating the need for manual size adjustment

  • Hover the mouse over the module so that “Auto Resize” appears (1).

  • Click “Auto Resize” to resize the module to the size required to display all its content.
