What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Okay… but what about spreadsheets?

In 1979 VisiCalc was released, it was a breakthrough toward the democratization of programming and working with numbers. It introduced a matrix where a user could input numbers inside each cell and quickly relate cells and perform calculations.

With this new spreadsheet software, tasks that used to take hours to do manually or that required specialized programmers and expensive computers were now made available to anyone who knew how to type and input a formula.

With VisiCalc and all following spreadsheet applications, people built many different applications such as data entry, payroll, taxes, accounting, operational planning, logistics and forecasts. At the time (and still today) this revolution allowed users to quickly adapt software to their needs, making spreadsheet applications the way most of us think with numbers, despite more powerful programming languages and tools.

If anyone can input a formula, why do we need something new?

Even though many spreadsheet applications started to democratize access to information and personalization, they didn’t come without their drawbacks. This type of software forces users to solve issues thinking “inside the box” which has lead to information silos, errors and plenty of unnecessary manual work. The reasons people typically build software generally fit within three buckets

  1. One
  2. Two
  3. Three

We can’t really predict all the ways people will use data analysis software. But for modeling, analysis and communication, the set of tools available today are too limited.Don’t get me wrong — this is not to say that we think spreadsheets are bad. In fact, quite the opposite: they’re essential. It’s how they are used that can leave businesses open to vulnerability and can limit individuals from using data and numbers in more meaningful ways.
