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.

Early backers of Open Bionics

Open Bionics is an award-winning designer, manufacturer and supplier of bionic limbs, based at the University of the West of England in Bristol. The company uses 3D printing and scanning technology to produce custom-made prosthetics at a lower manufacturing cost than what is traditionally considered an expensive area of prosthetics. Its first commercial product, the Hero Arm, secured commercial licenses from Disney, Marvel and Pixar to design arms for children with themes from Star Wars, Frozen and the Marvel Universe.

Downing-managed funds have invested alongside Foresight Williams Technology EIS Fund, Ananda Impact Ventures and Rathbone Nominees. Osborne Clarke also advised on the deal.

Will Brooks, Investment Director at Downing Ventures, comments: “As early backers of Open Bionics, we are pleased to increase and strengthen our support for a talented team that’s bringing advanced prosthetics to a wider market. We believe in Open Bionics’ vision of democratising access to cutting-edge healthcare technology and look forward to helping the business make this a reality.
