Last Updated: Dec 30 2013 03:58 am EST

Unlike the toolbar of the previous Mailigen template editor, the new toolbar is much more convenient and accessible. In the toolbar, tyou have all the original functionality, and many new functions.

Toolbar sections

The editor toolbar is divided into several sections according to function groups. You can move them just by clicking on the names of the sections. Each section includes a specific group of functions. The toolbar contains thefollowing sections: message, default text, text, blocks, images, options and plain text.

In the new toolbar, there are also functions that are not included in any of sections:

  • Save
  • Undo/redo
  • Change HTML code
  • Email preview
  • Exact time when the last edits were saved

Dynamic toolbar

Usually the email template is much longer than a computer screen, so it is necessary to use a scrollbar to look through the whole template. Unlike the previous editor where the toolbar remained on the top and was not accessible while editing the bottom part of the template, the new Mailigen template editor has a dynamic toolbar which freezes on the top of the browsing window and remains accessible while editing the bottom part of the template. Therefore template editing is much easier, faster and comfortable.
