Drag-and-Drop Editor Overview

overview-1.pngIn our drag-and-drop editor, templates are made up of groups of ‘Elements’.

An element can be text, an image, a combination of an image and text, etc. These elements can be just dragged and dropped onto your template.

The available Elements are displayed in the Build tab on the left side of your screen and the Elements list is automatically expanded when you open your template.

The drag-and-drop editing ribbon is displayed above your template and is grayed out when your template first opens. This ribbon is dynamic and will change depending on whether you are editing text or images.


You can collapse and expand the list in the tools area by using the arrow buttons, and switch between the 'Build' and 'Style' sections by clicking on the tabs.


 If you click in a text area on the template, then the ribbon will display options related to working with text.


But if you click on an image in the template, the ribbon displays image related options. In this case, the tools area will also automatically expand to the 'Images' view.


Above the drag-and-drop editor ribbon, there are a few other options available.


Here you can use the undo and redo icons, open a preview, perform a test send, or access the Utilities drop-down menu. There are also options to save your campaign or template. The Save & Continue button takes you to the next step in the process which is creating the plain text version of your template.
