    Additional Information:

    The CMS prevents converting saved field content units to component content units. However, you can click Make Copy to duplicate fields to a new content unit, where you can select a new component type. See Copying Field Content Units for details to duplicate field values. See Creating Component Content Units for details to create component units.
  7. Click Save in the Content Unit Actions menu when finished.

    Important: Existing instances of modified content units in a Page Builder presentation don't sync saved changes. Notify presentation content contributors of changes that may affect existing content unit instances. You or the contributor may want to remove the content unit instance and add a new instance to include new edits.
