  • Insert template - Allows you to insert predefined templates into your content.  Currently there are two templates available, a two column and a three column section.
  • Insert link to content - Allows you to insert an internal link to other CMS content... IE content you have created on this site.
  • Insert preview/full divider - Allows you to specify where the break should be when previewing your content.
