Link Element Content with Content Properties in Studio

  • Updated

Content properties are set values for elements (shapes, images, videos, text) in a design that can be referenced and reused across Pages in Studio. Within Content Properties, you can link content between elements on the same or different Pages, allowing you to update content in one place for faster and more consistent content creation. When an element is updated that is referencing a content property, the changes will also be applied to any other element in the design referencing that content property.

How to Enable Multiple Pages in Studio Designs

Pages are available on certain Studio plans. Please contact your Customer Success Manager for more information and any associated costs.
