Managing Clips

Jake Peters Updated by Jake Peters

Ever needed to use the same text or HTML in multiple articles? We got you. Clips lets you do just that.

Accessing Clips

  1. You can access Clips from the sidebar under Clips (or click here)
  2. From here you can select a Clip from the list

Easy as that!

A Clip is not linked to the original Clip in any way so don't worry about editing or deleting it. You can always hit Cmd-Z and try again 🙃

Creating a New Clip

  1. Head to Clips from the sidebar
  2. Click + New Clip
  3. Add your title and content
  4. Hit Save

Inserting a Clip

Once you've created your Clip you'll obviously wanna use it over and over again. Here's how it's done.

  1. Head to your article
  2. Click the 📎 Clips button in the toolbar
  3. Search for your Clip and select the result
  4. Your Clip will be inserted into your article 🎉

Deleting a Clip

  1. Head to Clips
  2. Select the Clip you wanna delete
  3. Click the More button
  4. Click Remove and confirm

Team Sharing Options

You can have private, shared, or locked Clips based on your sharing access settings.

  1. Head to Clips
  2. Select the Clip you wanna edit
  3. Share or Lock your Clip

Editing the sharing settings changes who on your team can see or edit your Clip. Here's what the combination of sharing access settings mean:

When to Use Clips

There's two main use cases for Clips. 

  1. Complicated HTML blocks that you can use to add functionality
    This is great if you have an HTML block that's complicated and you don't wanna recreate it each time. Also useful if you have something you use all the time.
  2. Entire article templates
    Make the same kinda article a lot? Create a template of it in Clips and reuse to your heart's content. This is great for FAQ templates or other structured content.
We recommend you differentiate between these by naming them something memorable. Try using TEMPLATE: or SECTION: as prefixes for your titles.
