All you need to know about editing text

If you're new to Qwilr, it's important to know how to format your text. You'll do all of this within our editor.

The screenshots and some descriptions in this document reflect a beta version of our editor. If you're interested in opting into that beta take a look at the details and register to participate. To see details on the existing editor head to that  specific help doc.

The Basics

Once you've added a block you'll have a few blank spots to add text. For example this is what a new blank Text block looks like:

Once you have text in the block you'll be able to highlight the text and then make changes with the editor that pops up.

Headings

To make text a heading, highlight it and choose either H1 (largest) or H2 (smaller heading option). Click them again to make your text be normal again.

Bolding Text

If you want to bold text, highlight the text you want to change and choose the B option in the toolbar. 

Italics

If you want to italicize text, highlight the text you want to change and choose the i option in the toolbar. 

Blockquotes

If you'd like to format text like a quote (great for testimonials from customer!) highlight that text and choose the ❝ icon. That will add formatting to call attention to your quote.

Lists

Please note: The list features mentioned here are part of the editor beta.

You'll be able to add ordered and unordered lists as well as adding in sublists. To add a list highlight the text you want to listify and in the toolbar choose ordered or unordered. To make something a sub-item use your tab key. To move those items back up a level hold down shift while tabbing. To completely remove the bullets or numbers use your delete/backspace key.

Please note: Some of the link features mentioned here are part of the editor beta.

To add a link, highlight the text you want to link and then click on the link icon. If you've already copied the URL you want to have linked you can skip clicking on the toolbar and simply paste once you've highlighted your text. We'll link it with what's on your clipboard.

Once the toolbar opens, type in or paste your URL. If you want to add an email link you'll want to format it as a mailto link. Example: mailto:help@qwilr.com

To remove a link mouse over the link you've added and in the toolbar click the remove option.

Formatting text in the Quote Block

Within your Quote Blocks you'll be able to add limited formatting to your text. You can:

  • Bold text
  • Italicize text
  • Make text an H2
  • Link text

Keyboard shortcuts

  • Bold: ctrl or cmd + b
  • Italic: ctrl or cmd + i
  • Links: ctrl or cmd + k . You can also copy the URL and then highlight the text you want links and paste. We'll automatically make it a link.
