Email settings
Here you can define settings that will be inherited by the entire email, unless overridden in specific places.

Email width is set to 600px by default which is best practice width to build emails.


Here you can find different types of rows to insert into the message.ย 

Rows are structural units that define the horizontal composition of a section of the message by using columns. You can use from one to four columns.

Using more than one column allows you to put different content elements side by side.

A row with multiple columns can be resized so that each column within the row has it's own custom width.

Every row has its own settings, which gives you the kind of flexibility that before was only achieved with hand-coded email.

For example, you can select a background color for the entire row, only the message area, or a specific column within it, or all of the above!


In this section you can drag specific content types into your rows. Each content object has it's own customizable settings.

Each row can have one or multiple content objects stacked on top of each other. The design below has two rows, the first has a button and text box in it. The second has just a text box.
