The Heading block is used to add structure and organization to the content. Studio has five levels of headings available, each with a slightly different style.

Headings are also important for accessibility as a screen reader uses them to determine levels of hierarchy in the content.

Text

The bulk of the content will usually be communicated via Text blocks. Make text more digestible by breaking it into smaller chunks, using lists or tables whenever possible.

Text content can be modified and manipulated via the various tools available in the toolbar. See Formatting Tools for an explanation of each tool.

The Table Block can be used to add a table. This block has the same formatting tools as the text block and also has properties that can be set specific to the table formatting.

When adding a table you can set the table properties for the number of rows/columns (Note: the first row is always a header row), heading formatting, width, and alignment. You can add a title to your table and set the column width type – Fixed or Variable.
