Creating a Qwilr Page from Scratch

When creating a Qwilr Page, you may prefer to start with a blank canvas and add your content in as you build.

To be clear - you don't have to start with a blank Page! You can pick from one of over 100 Templates to get you up and running - or you can even request our Digital Designer team to convert one of your existing sales decks into a Qwilr Page! (Reach out to [email protected] to chat about that!) But in the meantime, read on if you'd like to DIY it!

In this article:

Starting with a blank Page

A new Qwilr Page starts from your dashboard. Click the Create New button in the top right corner. Then choose Blank Page.

Adding Blocks

Your new Page will show a placeholder for typing and a + icon. Click that to add more blocks to your Page. You can choose from six types of Blocks.

Each type of Block has a different job:

  • Text Block: Contains words, inline images, tables, maps, buttons, and
  • Splash Block: Displays background images or video with header text
  • Video Block: Embeds a video into the page
  • Embed Block: Allows you to embed content from other sources, like Google Maps, Typeforms, slide presentations, and calendars
  • Quote Block: Displays customizable price quotes
  • Accept Block: Displays an Accept button, and can include e-Sign and payment options

When you're ready to add the next Block to your page, click on any of the + symbols you see between blocks. You can add as many blocks to your page as you need.

Adding content to Blocks

In most types of Blocks, you will see a placeholder where you can start typing. Click on it and begin entering your text.

Once you have some text in the Block, you'll be able to add formatting. Highlight any text, and an editing toolbar will automatically pop up.

Learn more about the formatting options here.

Inserting visuals

One of the great things about web-based documents is how many different kinds of visual content you can add. Qwilr provides an insertion icon to help you do just that. This icon is visible in all blank lines on your page and is represented by a plus symbol.

There's a lot you can do from this menu, including:

Adding styling

Anywhere you see a paint roller icon, that's where you can change colors, alignments, and other styles.

You'll see this icon in the top left corner of every block and a other locations. Learn more about styling here.

From here, you can do even more with your page.
