As these Quick Cards can populate the Explore space, they are displayed in card format. These cards contain various items, title and description for example.

The rules for truncating the content in these Quick Start cards is as follows:

  • If you have a title with 1 line, the description can be max 4 lines
  • If you have a title with 2 lines, the description can be a max of 3 lines
  • If you have a title with 3 lines, the description can be max 2 lines
