Page Builder preview

When you expand the Content section for an existing category where there is content created with Page Builder, it displays a preview of the Description content as it would appear in the category page. Click the content area to open the Page Builder workspace, where you can make any needed updates.

Description preview

This content preview is enabled for the product and category forms by default. If performance suffers due to loading the preview, you can disable the preview in the Content Management configuration settings.

Add the category description in the editor

Enter only plain ASCII characters into the text box. If pasting text from a word processor, save it first as a plain .TXT file to remove any invisible control characters.
