Editable Rich Text Areas

These are areas where you can add Rich Text to your template. Rich Text supports text formatting, such as bold, italics and underlining; as well as different fonts, font sizes and coloured text.

When editing an Editable Rich Text area, the Content Editor Toolbar opens, giving you greater control over the formatting of your rich text, it also supports HTML, allowing you to add image, video content and your own code.

To Edit an Editable Rich Text Area:

  1. Click the edit icon to the left of the Rich Text Area in your Email.
