Managing Text

Overview

Gutenforms uses the Gutenberg editor, and therefore also supports the following Gutenberg blocks:

  • Heading
  • Paragraph
  • List

These can be added, edited and deleted in the same way as a Field, allowing for a more bespoke form to meet specific needs – for example, providing a mixture of form fields and explanatory text, or splitting the form fields into sections underneath headings.
