Working with the campaign editor

Abstract

Describes the campaign editor preview mode.

The campaign editor allows you to easily add or edit the layout and items of your newsletters. The editor consists of four main sections, the top menu, the left pane, the editing area, and the right pane.

When building your newsletters, you can switch between the different modes in the top menu and use the available options. The top menu is always visible whichever mode you are in.

The following table lists the modes and other available buttons in the top menu:

Helper Grid

When switched on, the workspace shows what layout and items you can add to your design.

By default, the left pane is displayed in the campaign editor. It consists of three separate tabs: Layout, Items, and Settings. You can use the left pane to switch between the tabs to create a structure, add items, or customize the general settings of your newsletters.

The editing area is the main workspace in the campaign editor where you can edit and customize the structures and items in your newsletter, preview your newsletter on different devices, or add comments for collaboration.

The right pane is displayed in the campaign editor when you click an item or a layout in the editing area. This pane contains the settings you can use to customize an item or a layout. You can close the right pane at any time by clicking Icon_close.png. This can be useful when you need to increase your workspace to edit your newsletter.
