Configuring the Custom text template

The Custom text template enables you to add customized text and images to a view page. You can use this page to include introductory content for your custom view or to add summarized information about other pages in the custom view. You can add descriptions, instructions, or any other textual information. You can use markdown tags to format the content of custom text and to add images, links, and tables.
