Hi Maxim,

Thank you you for contacting us about this! You can click the + > menu item to get add any macros to the page including Instructional Text and new variables.

Let me know if you have any trouble with that!


Thanks for your reply.

Which type of Macros should I look for?

I can't find neither variables non instructional text there.

Hi Maxim,

Can you show me what your menu looks like in that case? This is what that menu should look like on the new editor:

Thank you for confirming you were able to find it! Glad to hear. :) 

Let me know if you have any further trouble and I'll be happy to help!
