I have created new content type Special Offer that has Body. Then have created new Querry that shows list of offers, then have created a Projection to show that list of offers based on query. Everything looks good.

Now that list shows Title, Publishing Date and first few words from Body.

How I can customize that Projection will show that list in a liitle bit different way, and instead of showing first few words from Body to show Description. Description is a summary of what is presented in Body. The problem is that first words from body does not always properly shows what special offer is about as it should.

Looks like I have to add a new Fireld to my content type
