Recreating your Classic Editor email design

Most Classic Editor email designs translate easily to Modern Editor. You might find some changes are needed but the end result will be a beautiful responsive email design.

  1. Start a Modern Editor email, keep this email open.
  2. Open your Classic Editor email in a new browser tab.
  3. Begin replicating the Classic Editor design in your Modern Editor browser tab using BLOCKS (text, image and structural blocks).
  4. In another browser tab, open your Classic Editor email Content Theme.
  5. Begin replicating your Content Theme in your Modern Editor browser tab using the STYLESHEET.
  6. In another browser tab, open your Classic Editor email Background Theme.
  7. Begin replicating your Background Theme in your Modern Editor browser tab using the STYLESHEET.
  8. Save your Modern Editor email as you work on it.
