The authoring environment of the Infinity platform is designed and developed considering the modern requirement of multimedia content and flexibility in organizing the content quickly and easily.
The block editor is the authoring environment where you can add the content in the form of blocks arranged from top to bottom of the page. These blocks can be for the same content type or different. For example, blocks for paragraphs, tables, images, audios/videos, bulleted lists, notes, codes, and many more.
After adding blocks and adding content to these blocks, you can rearrange these blocks simply by clicking the Up and Down arrows from the toolbar. This rearrangement keeps the content intact while moving the block to the new location.
The Infinity platform provides a library of blocks. You can browse the library and select the required block for your content.
To access the block library, the block editor provides a plus icon at different places, like in between two blocks, on the main toolbar, or at the end of an empty paragraph line. Clicking this plus icon displays the blocks panel with the most used blocks. In the panel, click the Browse all button to view the list of all blocks provided by the Infinity platform.
The block editor also provides a shortcut key slash (/) to pull the list of blocks that you can add to your editor.
Each block provides a separate toolbar with options to manage the content of the block. Once you add a block in the editor, the block toolbar appears displaying the corresponding buttons to make the required changes in the block content.

The block editor not just provides a block to add content, but also provides additional configurations that can help you enhance your block as per the business requirement. These configurations differ according to the block that you select.
