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!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, link test for rtb, 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.

 Spring is in the Air! Making this the perfect time of year to take a look at our job-sites and give them a tidy. Our biggest Spring must-do: Clean Tools. 

The backbone of every job site are the tools you bring with you from site to site. While excellent tools make all the difference, a dirty set with excess build up from several month's worth of work will slow you down and have an impact on your install. Here is our step-by-step guide on how to clean your hand-tools!

Before you Start:

First thing first, check in that you have everything you need. 

Gather Supplies

  • Bucket full of Warm Water 

  • Brushes

  • Sponges

  • Putty Knife

  • Micro Fibre Towels

Step-By-Step Guide: 

1. Scrape off Excess Grout & Mortar

Use your putty knife to remove any dried grout or mortar from the surface of all tools.

If necessary: Soak difficult to remove tools in bucket, allowing the grout or mortar to soften!

2. Scrub Tools

Use long handle scrub brush and dry scrub all of your tools. Focus on crevices and hard to reach areas.

Pro Tip: Avoid using a wire brush as will scratch the plastic.

3. Rinse

Use water and a sponge to remove any left over residue.

4. Inspect for Damage

Now that all the grout and mortar has been removed, check for any damage incurred from previous installs. Look for cracks or anything that might need replacement.

5. Dry Tools

Use your micro fibre cloth to pat dry the tools then hang to dry! 

You're all set! Head to your next job with clean and ready to use tools.
