The Drag and Drop content editor combines the great ease of use with many features that give you full control over the design of your emails. Its drag-and-drop interface enables you to design a great-looking message without any knowledge of HTML. The content created using the editor adapts automatically to small screens such as that of a smartphone.
Separating Structure and Content
For maximum design flexibility, the structure of the message is separated from its content. This means that you can have rows of content that use different designs for different sections of the message, for example, full-width background colors, a different number of columns, without negatively impacting the responsiveness of the message on mobile devices.
Message Editing and Properties Panel
The editor is divided into two areas: the main message editing canvas on the left and the properties panel on the right. You can drag-and-drop content elements onto the canvas and then edit their properties. This is true for all the structures (for example, a single-column row) and the individual content blocks (for example, a text content block).
When it comes to images, you can drag-and-drop image files directly from your desktop onto an image content block. You can also upload them using the Image Library or use the URL of remotely hosted images.
The Properties Panel is divided into three tabs:
- Content – In this tab, you can choose and edit the specific content elements that make up your message, for example, buttons, images, text blocks, and so on. To learn more, see Drag and Drop Editor: Content Tab.
- Rows – In this tab, you can select different structural elements to organize your content, for example, a single-column versus three-column row. To learn more, see Drag and Drop Editor: Rows Tab
- Settings – In this tab, you can edit the overall settings that affect the entire message. For example, a default font family. To learn more, Drag and Drop: Settings Tab.
