Advanced Element Controls



Use the powerful advanced element controls in the Email Designer. These controls will allow you to easily split, merge, and swap elements within a block.

In this article, you will learn:

  1. How to Split, Merge, and Swap Elements
  2. How to Select Multiple Elements in One Block

Splitting, merging and swapping elements

If you move your mouse and hover over an element, you will see the advanced element control menu appear below the element.  This menu allows you to split your element, merge your element, and swap your element.


Splitting Elements Merging Elements Swapping Elements

The splitting feature lets you split one larger element into multiple smaller elements. Whenever you split an element, one element will always be split into two elements.


To split an element, hover over the element and then click the icon, which will then split the element into two new elements.



Selecting multiple elements in one block

When there are multiple elements within one block, it can be helpful to select multiple elements so that they can be bulk edited. 

This can be done by holding the control button (or command if using Mac), and clicking on each element that you would like to select.


Once this has been done, the Multiple Elements Menu will appear on the right side of the screen. Depending on the types of elements selected, different options will be available for editing.

If multiple text elements or multiple button elements were selected, the following changes can be made:

    1. Padding between elements
    2. Font
    3. Text size
    4. Line spacing
    5. Alignment

Otherwise, the only available options will be to edit the padding between elements.
