Text Editor Widget

Besides the features that normally appear on the TinyMCE editor, this widget you has more styling options that let you change settings like font weight, line height, letter spacing, alignment and more.
In Elementor, you can make the first letter of the text a Drop Cap, meaning it appears bigger and different than the rest of the text.
