Improving schema setup for adding bold and italics to a title/string field in Slack thread.

Hey all, looking for a schema setup where I can add bold, & italics to a title/string field. Current setup is to use an array/block and then limit it to 1 line via validation. This works but looks like overkill. Anyway to improve this setup, loose aim at getting the WYSIWYG height to that of a string field and maybe disabling the ability to hit return?

      name: 'headingBlock',
      title: 'Hero Title block',
      // fieldset: 'hero',
      of: [
          type: 'block',
          styles: [{title: 'Normal', value: 'normal'}],
          lists: [],
          marks: {
            decorators: [
              {title: 'Strong', value: 'strong'},
              {title: 'Emphasis', value: 'em'},
      type: 'array',
      validation: (Rule) =>
        Rule.custom((value, {document}) => {
          if (value && value?.length > 1) {
            return 'This is a title and so can only be one line.';
          return true;

I don’t think there’s a clean way to do this, unfortunately.

No worries, this setup works fine, it was just the details I was getting caught up on. Thanks!
