You can also assign new custom colors to quickly use when changing text color formatting on your website. 

Removing formatting

Remember to publish your website to apply the new changes.

Removing demo content

When creating a site with the Sitebuilder, you will see that each block comes pre-loaded with demo content to highlight the design. The demo content is intended as inspiration only!  If you like a block’s content structure, you can edit it and replace the content with your own images and text. To do this, click on any place in the text and start typing. 

Copying and pasting text

You can copy text from your text editor and paste it directly on the page. The existing formatting will be preserved.

  1. To copy the text into your clipboard: highlight the text to copy and press Command ⌘ +C (iOS) or Ctrl+V (Windows) combination.
  1. To paste the contents of the clipboard: Press Command ⌘ + V (Mac) or Ctrl+V (Windows) combination.

Tip: to quickly highlight the entire paragraph place your cursor on it and press Command ⌘+A (iOS) or Ctrl+A (Windows).

Deleting text from a page

You both create and delete any amount of text in the Sitebuilder by using the computer keyboard. You can use the same familiar keys to delete text: Backspace and Delete. How these keys work, and how much of your text they can delete, depends on how you use them.   

The Backspace and Delete keys are used to delete single characters:

  • Backspace: Deletes the character to the left of the insertion pointer
  • Delete: Deletes the character to the right of the insertion pointer

After you delete a character, any text to the right or below the character shuffles over to fill the void. You can also press and hold Backspace or Delete to continuously delete characters in the Sitebuilder.  

The Sitebuilder has two ways to delete bigger portions of text.

  1. To delete a word: Point the mouse at the word and double-click to highlight it. Press the Delete or Backspace key to make the word disappear.

2. To delete a paragraph: Point the mouse at the paragraph, click the mouse button three times, and press the Delete or Backspace key.

After deleting the word or any portion of the text, the Sitebuilder wraps up the remaining text and updates the block design.

You can also delete blocks and block elements from the page. Visit this tutorial to learn how to do it.
