August 2017: Features and Enhancements

Here's the August 2017 release! Read our full release notes for August updates here.

 

Email Designs & Modern Editor


We've been focusing on how to make accessing the STYLESHEET in Modern Editor easier. We've found the perfect solution.

 

Now in Modern Editor when editing content blocks the BLOCKS and STYLESHEET tabs now appear at all times to allow easier access to General Styles. No more closing out a block to access the STYLESHEET. This tab will always be available. Learn more about setting up your email styles.

 

Also, when editing content for any block the block name and Content and Styles links are now centered below the tabs. No functionality has changed, it's just an updated UI. Click the X to return to the BLOCKS and STYLESHEET default view as always.


Additionally, we moved some elements in the STYLESHEET section. In General Styles we moved the Typography section to the top of the editing window since most users focus their attention on these updates. And we moved Preheader and Footer sections into Single Blocks. We hope these updates make your work more efficient!

 

Other Modern Editor updates:

  • Link warning: Added warning text if you enter an HREF URL that does not include a protocol, e.g. http:// You should still always test your links, though!
  • Embedding Video: Improved Video UI and added helpful info about embedding HTML5 video.
  • Text block: Fixed issue where a grey bar appeared below the content when new code was pasted into the HTML window.
