How do I add rows and columns to my message?

While you are creating a message you may find it useful to separate the information within your message with rows and columns. Inserting rows and columns is a great way to achieve a desired look and layout that you may be trying for with your message. One great use for rows and columns is for aligning images that are inserted into your messages.

Please note that the instructions below are for messages created using our Drag & Drop Email Builder.

Step by Step Instructions

  1. When editing one of your messages, click anywhere within the message that you are working on. A menu bar will appear above the template that you are working on.

    Row and column toolbar

  2. In that menu you will notice 5 icons. The last 2 icons are for adding rows and columns to your message.

    Clicking Column button will add a column" to your message.

    Row divided with a column

    For columns, you can click on the perforated line and drag it to adjust the size of your columns. Notice how the screenshot below has a larger left column than the screenshot above.

    Clicking Row button will add a row to your message.

    Column divided by row

    When you have more than one column in a row, you can duplicate it by holding down Command on MAC or CTRL on PC and clicking Column button.

    Note: The perforated lines that are inserted when adding columns and rows will not appear in the messages that you send out. They are only there while you are editing your message so you can see where the rows and columns are being inserted.

  3. Once you have the desired number of columns/rows inserted you can start dragging and dropping in different blocks for content. Below you can see an example of a message that was created using additional columns and rows.
