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.

Investment manager Downing LLP today announces the recent sale of Osprey Green Power Limited, the fifth exit by its funds from a series of seven hydro investments based in Scotland and managed by Gilkes Energy Limited.

Downing has worked closely with Gilkes Energy, a specialist hydro developer, since September 2013, investing some £20 million of EIS equity across seven projects. These seven projects are now fully operational, all having been built on time and to budget.

Downing has exited five of these projects to GHI Holdings Limited – a company which owns and operates a portfolio of operational hydro projects. Gilkes Energy will continue to operate the hydro projects.

Each exit was in line with the original investment case, a successful conclusion to five years’ work.

Downing EIS investors hold equity in a further two operational projects and it’s anticipated that the investors will exit these investments towards the second half of 2019.

Information correct at time of publishing, January 2019.
