Shopify schema richtext to display only specific formatting options

Hi all,

 

I've seen screenshots of the Shopify richtext field that by default shows all formatting options (ai, paragraph, bold, italic, link, bulleted list, numbered list, etc.) like this:

And then sometimes I've seen limited formatting options (only bold, italic, and link) like this:

smthngstrng_4-1696803875777.png

 

In other words, in my schema, is there some sort of input settings to allow me to display only the bold, italic, and link options?

 

My schema looks like this:

 

{% schema %}
{
  "name": "Example Name",
  "tag": "section",
  "settings": [
    {
      "type": "richtext",
      "id": "rich_text",
      "label": "Rich Text"
    }
  ]
}

{% endschema %}

 

 

Thank you for taking a look! Any help is much appreciated.

Use inline_richtext type not richtext type

https://shopify.dev/docs/themes/architecture/settings/input-settings#inline_richtext 

 

afaik no way to granularly control the formatting options for the full rich text input setting

Ha! This is perfect, thank you Paul. I totally missed this input_richtext option in the list. Wewww!

Same I always have to double check richtext  when I can't remember what the settings are for richtext to only have 1 control, like making it a list builder.

Because it's so non-intuitive and silly for there to be two separate controls.

Hi Paul,

 

I have been using this "inline_richtext" type now for a few pages, but I just noticed you can't hit "enter" of "shift + enter" for a line break, haha.. oh man. Frustrating that you can use hard returns with a "textarea" type and the "richtext" type but for whatever reason for the "inline_richtext", they just say no, no line breaks for you!

 

I don't see any ways around this, unless you happen to know something that maybe I'm missing here?
