How can I add headline/heading text to email body?

In the 3rd Gen editor, there's an option to choose the color for headlines, but the only headlines are ones that exist in whichever template I've chosen. There's no option to insert my own headlines in the body of an email.

 

I can add a text block and then manually increase the text size or weight, and change the color. But if I have multiple headlines in a single email, I have to modify them individually. That's a pain, especially if I decide to change colors during the design process.

 

Even if there was an option in the text editor to change from a paragraph (<p>) to a heading (<h2>, <h3>, etc), that would make it much simpler!

Hello @dpruth001,

Headlines are part of the Layouts, located at the bottom of the build tab to the left of the email during editing. These are drag and droppable and if you choose the one on the right (Showing a green shading) it will bring in the Headline with the default color in the background.

Hello @TheresaR30 ,

 

When you mouse over an unclicked block, you should see three gray squares in the top-right corner. The one that looks like a little intersection or compass rose is what you can use to drag your headline blocks around, if they're already in the email.
