Freeform editor 2.0 - User manual

A guide to using's new freeform editor

Use the cursor to navigate

The new freeform editor now has a cursor throughout the whole document, instead of only in editable text fields. This way you can easily navigate through the content and remove or create new content right on the spot. If you'd like to remove a piece of content, just place just cursor on the content and hit the "Backspace ⌫" key. Alternatively you can also click the little "Edit" icon on the left and choose "Remove block" in order to remove a block of content.

Use the Enter key to create a new block

With the original freeform editor you had to frequently switch between your keyboard and mouse, even when you were just typing a long piece of text. With the new editor we changed this so you can now just keep on typing and only need to use your mouse when trying to create other blocks than the default text block. After writing a paragraph just hit "Enter " in order to create the next block. If you want to create a different kind of block instead, just click on the "add" icon and choose the right block. Want to add a block in between a existing text block? Just put your cursor where you want to place the new block and hit the "Enter " key.

Use the menu to add content

To insert any type of content just press the "add" button on the left. This will open a menu of all the available content types. Simple select the type you find most suitable to insert it into your document. You can also use this menu to change content type for a certain block or to remove a block, using the bottom red "Remove block" button.

Use meta-settings to alter the appearance of content

Some types of content now have "Meta-settings", these are mostly used to alter the way content is displayed. For instance for the title block you can now choose the size of the title (h1, h2, h3) by using the meta-settings controls. To trigger the meta-settings controls, just click on the content you want to change, if it has any settings they'll be shown on top as a little black control element.
