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, 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.


Responsible investment manager Downing LLP is continuing to expand its support for property developers with a £9 million deal building on strong momentum in the sector. Its Property Finance team is delivering huge growth despite challenging market conditions.

The latest deal supports the building of 56 houses and 22 flats by a new client in Bordon, Hampshire, which is equidistant between Guildford and Winchester.

The homes are being built on land which forms part of a major regeneration site which has largely been developed successfully by national housebuilders.

Downing’s Property Finance team deploys funds from investors as secured loans to property developers delivering residential-led schemes nationwide, as well as non-speculative commercial developments, and specialist sub-sectors such as student accommodation.

Its investors can benefit from debt investment secured against property development projects by targeting attractive yield through a “safety-first” lens, focusing on relationship-based sourcing and working with experienced counterparties.  

Parik Chandra, Partner and Head of Specialist Lending, Downing LLP, said: “We are continuing to grow the portfolio in very tough macro conditions and a competitive market. We remain committed to supporting SME developers in the face of challenging conditions.

“We’re delighted that the houses and flats will be a mixture of styles and sizes, serving a broad range of buyers - from families to first-time buyers.”

Downing LLP typically lends between £1 million and £25 million to experienced developers with the ability to go higher by exception. It lends up to 90% loan-to-cost and 70% loan-to-gross-development value.
