Last week we started discussing the different tabs that are available in the email template editor. This week, we are going to complete the different tabs before moving on to the blocks menu.
The Settings Menu contains, as the name suggests, settings as available for the different elements as they are selected, which means that this menu is considered context sensitive. When you have selected an image, for example, the Settings Menu will contain different fields and options than it will contain when you have selected a Social Media icon. However, a rule of thumb is that any kind of linked object, like images, buttons, and icons, can have their target URL set in the Settings Menu.
An example of the Settings Menu for an image element looks as follows:
The Layer Manager is intended to assist you in keeping an overview of the different components in the template and contains a listed and nested overview of the layers that are present in the email template. As elements can get nested in other elements, it is sometimes easier to find out where specific components are located in this nested overview.
Clicking on any of the elements in the Layer Manager will automatically select the given element in the WYSIWYG editor and, if necessary, jump the tool to the right point in the template.
With the different tabs out now discussed, next week we will go over the different blocks that are available in the Template editor, after which we will discuss the topic of recipient-based content for the templates.
