How do I add an embed to my Story?

Embeds are added by clicking on the green + button within the Story Editor.

When clicking on the + button, you will see a dropdown menu that includes the full list of embed options.


Select the embed you wish to add to your Story. Depending on the type of embed, you can either upload a file or simply copy and paste the link of the embed (e.g. Youtube link) and it will be placed inline within your Story.


Removing embeds

To remove an embed, use the red "trash bin" icon at the top right-hand corner of the embed's frame. Once you click on it, the embed will be deleted from your Story.
