Text Block Element
The Text Block Element is a simple, yet foundational element, which allows you to use the normal WordPress editor to insert content onto your page. In addition, there is an added feature that lets you take one large body of text content and choose the amount of columns it will be displayed in. This is perfect for blog posts and pages as it offers a unique design style and gives you more control over how you present the information to your users. Read below to discover more about this most used of all elements.
Here is a text block element, and with the inline columns set to “3”, it pulls your entire content box across 3 columns. We have even added an image to show you the element’s flexibility. You can also use any inline element to style your content inside the text block element.
Highlights are one example of the possibilities. This is an amazing way to break up long and varied segments of content on your website to make them easier to read, and more attractive and modern.

How To Use The Text Block Element in Fusion Builder Live
There are only a few differences when using the Text Block Element in the Fusion Builder Live Editor.
Being a text-based Element, the Text Block Element is directly editable in the Fusion Builder Live Editor. Just click inside the text on the page to start writing or editing. And if you make a selection of text on the page, the Inline Editor appears, allowing you to make formatting changes to parts of your text directly on the page.
Please see the Best Practices for Inline Editing in Fusion Builder Live document for a good idea of how to best use the Inline Editor.
