You can add and edit text throughout Rise. However, text blocks provide you with prebuilt paragraph and header options as well as multi-column and table formats.

Here’s how they work.

Step 1: Insert a Text Block

  1. Open a Rise course, then edit an existing lesson or create a new one.

  2. Select All Blocks from the blocks shortcut bar. Or, click the insert block icon (+) that appears when you mouse-over a boundary between blocks.

  3. When the sidebar appears, choose the Text category in the block library, then select the block you want.

Step 2: Modify the Text Block

Use the format menu to modify how your content appears on the screen. In addition to adjusting block padding, you can expand or constrain the width of your text with content width and change how much space is after your heading with heading padding.

For column blocks, you can select the number of columns to display and if you'd like images at the top of each column.

Table block formatting provides three preset content widths and cell padding options.
