Last updated: Oct 25, 2021
Hi there, I am trying to create a preview for a custom type called fullWidthText. It has a field named ‘text’. This ‘text’ field is reference to another custom type and then it to another:) I am able to see the text in the preview however if the author put text in columns(which is another custom field) the text is not shown in the preview. Could you please help for the solution.

Hey Nur! Unfortunately,
