Rich text fields are used for long-form content you can format from the CMS panel in the Designer or the Editor.
While a plain text field is used for creating short-form, unformatted text, a rich text field is used for long-form content that you can format from the Collections panel in the Designer or the Editor. The rich text field gives your collaborators freedom to create and format their content. The rich text field can be displayed in Collection lists and on Collection pages. You can also use the rich text field to filter a Collection list or set conditional visibility on elements on Collection pages and in lists.
A rich text field can be added to a new or existing Collection. In Collection settings, click on New Field and then choose the Rich Text field.
Before saving the field, you can set a minimum character count and/or a maximum character count that is allowed for this field. And as with any field, you can add a Help text and specify if the field is required or not.
