Use the Text content type to add a text container with a WYSIWYG (“What You See Is What You Get”) editor in the Page Builder stage. In addition, you can add links, images, variables, and widgets to the text from the editor toolbar.
If you are making significant changes to Page Builder content, it is recommended that you increase the Admin Session Lifetime to prevent the session from timing out while you work.
You can access the text editor directly from the stage or from a settings page. Changes made directly to the stage are saved automatically. For more information, see Using the Editor.

Hidden elements are stored in the database and invisible to customers. However, these elements are visible to search engines and other bots that crawl your site. They are also returned as part of the content if requested through an API call with an attribute of invisibility, unless you remove them from the stage.
In the Page Builder panel, expand Elements and drag a Text placeholder to a row, column, or tab set on the stage.
Use the editor to enter and format text, as needed.
For more information, see Using the Editor.
The Insert Link button in the editor makes it easy to add a hyperlink to an image in the gallery. However, it can also be used to create an inline link in text, if you have the URL in advance. Unlike the Widget button, the Insert/Edit link button is not integrated with pages, products, or categories in the store.
To create a link for a telephone number or email, see Adding Custom Variables.
In the storefront, navigate to the page that is to be the target destination for the link and copy the link information.
