This article will discuss how to add text to your design and how to edit that text so that it fits your design requirements.

Adding text to your designs

Regardless of whether you have used quick blocks or custom blocks to add content to your designs, you can add text by clicking on the text element in your block to select it.

After you’ve selected the text element, you can delete the existing placeholder text and add your own text.

There are two ways to format text in the email designer, via the Text Pop-Out menu or via the Text Settings menu.

Formatting Options in the Text Pop-Out Menu

You can access the Text Pop-Out Menu by clicking on the text element that you would like to edit. When clicked, you will see a menu appear above the text element with various formatting and styling options

These options includes:

  1. Text Styling (Bold, italics, underline)
  2. Bullet points/Numbered list creation
  3. Link creation
  4. Font Coloring
  5. Highlighting

You can add these formatting options to your text element by clicking and holding your mouse button down while dragging it across the text you would like to edit. Once you’ve selected the text you would like to edit, you can then click on the desired formatting options

It’s important to note that this will only affect the text that you’ve selected. If you want to format all the text in your element, you will have to select all the text.

Formatting Options in the Text Settings Menu

You can access the Text Settings by clicking on the text element you would like to edit and then navigating the right side of the screen, where you will see the Text Settings menu appear.

You will notice that the formatting options available in this menu includes:

  1. Padding
  2. Header/Normal
  3. Font
  4. Text Size
  5. Line Spacing
  6. Alignment
  7. Table of Contents Settings

It’s important to note that any of the changes made in this section will change the formatting for the entire block. 

When adding formatting options from the Text Settings menu, you will not have to select any text. Just simply select the formatting option you would like to apply and it will instantly apply to your text element
