Mail Designer 365 1.2.2 Update Guide

Say hello to some more brand new, exciting features in Mail Designer 365, as version 1.2.2 has just landed! In this version, the team have taken text styles to a whole new level, and also introduced some new image editing tools to give you even more creative freedom when building your email designs.

What's new in 1.2.2?

Link styles

 

Create consistent and visually impressive link styles with the new formatting tool in version 1.2.2. For each text style you set, you can also pre-configure custom link styles. Change the color, apply bold or italic effects, or underline, strike-through, or ALL CAPS emphasis; the choice is yours!

It’s easy to get set up… Highlight the section of text you want to link to, add your link address in the box, hit enter, and then configure your link style under the “Style” tab.

To make individual links stand out, you can use the emphasis tool, located underneath the link tool.

Letter spacing

 

The newest addition to our text formatting options, letter spacing allows you to create cool spacing styles for your newsletter designs. TIP: Use this style to create unique and eye-catching headlines or sub-headings.

Letter spacing is also available for text within images, giving you even more flexibility in your designs.

Image cropping

 

Enjoy full control over your images with the new image cropping tool in Mail Designer 365. Insert an image into an image area and use the cropping feature to directly adjust and reposition the image to suit your design.
