By clicking the “plus icon” button, you can further edit the text aside from what tools you can find in the editing panel. Form here, you can also add media such as photos, audio, and videos, add links, and even embed YouTube and twitter quotes.

On the top-right portion of the page, you can preview your work by clicking on the “preview” button before publishing your work by clicking on the “update” button right next to it. On the far right, clicking on the “three vertical dots” icon will allow you to choose what is visible on your group page. You have the option to pin the top toolbar at the editing panel, allowing you to access all the block and document tools in a single place, or go to spotlight mode to focus on one block at a time, or even go fullscreen to work without distraction.

Clicking on the setting button indicated as a “gear” icon found on the top-right portion of the page, will lead you to the third and last part of the group page, which is the side panel.

Under the group tab, you can see the status and visibility of your group and check the number of post views the group has gotten. You can even move it to the trash from here. You can add group categories and tags associated with the group and featured image on the group as a whole.

On the Block Tab, you can resize every block text from here. You can also change the color of the text and their background color.
