08 Jan Mail Designer 365 1.5 Update Guide
What better way to ring in the new year than with a brand new Mail Designer 365 update for you? The release of Mail Designer 365 version 1.5 introduces an array of exciting new features guaranteed to make email design easier and more productive. As well as a set of elegant new design ideas, we've also made significant changes to our smartphone editor and introduced even more of the latest mobile devices to the device preview list...
Four new design ideas
To kick off 2019, we've added four new design ideas to our design library. These designs have been specially created for you to send as elegant New Year's greetings to your customers and colleagues. You can access them in the Design Chooser:
With mobile styles, you can now make adjustments to text styles which are only applied to your mobile layout. This makes it easier to carry out changes to your mobile layout, such as font size and line height, without needing to detach blocks.
Carry out style changes to your text in the smartphone view and you will see a list of your mobile adjustments in a blue box in the Style menu while editing your design:
Important: Mobile Style Adjustments are not supported by non-Gmail addresses in the Gmail mobile app – check your design using the new Gmail (IMAP) preview. See our tutorial in the Mail Designer 365 Manual for a step-by-step guide.
New layout blocks
Version 1.5 also introduces two practical, new layout blocks to Mail Designer 365; offering you even more design flexibility...
