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.
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!
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.

Kibbey invites you to celebrate her newest solo record release, Crossing the Ocean, with Pentatone Records.
Using her harp as a musical passport, Kibbey synthesizes the past with the vanguard of the new, via her signature keyboard transcriptions, newly-commissioned works from the record, then inviting two special guests on stage (NY Gypsy All-Star Clarinetist Ismail Lumanovski and Latin-Grammy winning percussionist Samuel Torres) as she acts as bandleader in the live launch of a new touring project celebrating today's Nuevo Latino luminaries.
Through it all, Kibbey is sending a musical love letter to just a few of the international communities in New York City, who've expanded her life – at and away from the harp. With works by:
Jacob de Bandolim
Juan Manuel Plaza
