  6. Click the component in the preview pane you want to edit.
    • Clicking a field automatically scrolls to its location on the content edit page where you can make changes.
    • Clicking a module does one of the following:
      • Clicking an inline module scrolls to its location on the content edit form and opens it for editing.
        Clicking on an inline module that is embedded in a rich-text editor field scrolls the content edit page to the inline module's position, but does not open it for editing. You must click edit next to the inline module you would like to edit in order to make changes.
      • Clicking a shared module opens the module's content edit form where edits can be made.
        Edits made to a shared module are displayed everywhere that shared module is used.
  7. Make any changes as necessary.
  8. Complete your site's workflow and publish the asset.
