DOM Text Block

The DOM Text block is simply a block of text with advanced font styling options. It is designed to be used as a nested child in other blocks, but works equally well as a block on the root level.

Settings Overview

  • Block Settings
    • Margins : All AMP Publisher blocks have a Top Margin and Bottom Margin setting allowing you to create space without having to insert a spacing block. [tutorial]
    • Text – Font : Includes all text alignment and styling options available for text. [tutorial]

Object Map (DOM)

  • root object (div) targeted node from Block Settings panel : You may assign style settings that apply to this entire block.
    • content (div) untargeted node : This is the text object. It is a child of the block to allow for advanced styling and handling from parent objects.
