What are you trying to accomplish
I want to add inline text editing to my custom Text component. There doesn’t seem to be any documentation or topic on the forum on this subject. I did check the Github of the React SDK and I tried to copy the code from the core Text component but it did not work.

Is there an official way to implement this?
What is the point of automatically adding a field to enable inline text editing if it does not work?

Code stack you are integrating Builder with
React and Next.js
