With block_text() we can define a text area and this can be easily combined with other block_*() functions. The text will take the entire width of the block and will resize according to screen width. Like all block_*() functions, block_text() must be placed inside of blocks() and the resultant blocks object can be provided to the body, header, or footer arguments of compose_email().

block_text(text, align = c("left", "center", "right", "justify"))

## Arguments

text

Plain text or Markdown text (via md()).

align

The text alignment to be used for this block of text. The default is "left".

## Examples

# Create a block of two, side-by-side
# articles with two article() calls
# inside of block_articles(), itself
# placed in blocks(); also, include some
# text at the top with block_text()
email <-
