How do I edit the text in my message?

When creating your broadcast or follow up, you'll likely need to edit the text that you have in your message. With the Drag & Drop Email Builder, updating your text is easy! This article explains how to update the text in your message using the drag & drop email builder.

Step By Step Instructions

  1. Once you apply your template, the Drag & Drop Email Builder provides the option to use different blocks to drop elements into your message.

  2. Initially, you may see existing text loaded into the message depending on the template. This is an example of placeholder text loaded with one of our templates: 

    You will see filler text loaded into your message from the template

  3. To edit the text, simply click where the text appears. Your cursor will be placed within that block, you'll see a border appear around the block, and you can make alterations to the text.

  4. Once you click the Paragraph block, a toolbar option will appear directly above it. You can make modifications to your text by changing the font size, style, bold, italicize, add a hyperlink, etc.
