For those unfamiliar with this new feature, it’s a way to automatically format text, based on the structure of the text surrounding it. For example, you can automatically format the price at the end of a product description, based on its location in the paragraph: “the text between the paragraph return and the tab that occurs before it“. Or, format the product name, because it is “all the text before the first tab“.
