All the email messages in our platform are structured by a descending hierarchy of elements.

Stripes that contain structures (aka rows), containers, and blocks are on top of the hierarchy.

To add stripes, click the "+" icon at the bottom left corner of the stripe.

Every stripe might have its type: Header, Content, Footer, Info area. You can set it manually in the "Message area" settings.

Using different types of stripes can be helpful for advanced adjustments.

Stripes adjustment:

To apply general settings for each stripe, go to the "Appearance" β†’ "Stripes" menu. And pick up the stipe type you want to start editing.

In the general settings, you can:

  • set the text size;

  • apply the background color as well as the content background color;

  • upload the background image;

  • set the font color and link color.

Further, you can customize each stripe separately in case you have multiple content stripes but want to have different configurations for them.

To do that, select the needed stripe, and the corresponding stripe settings menu will open on the left.

In the "Appearance" tab, you can:

  • override the current stripe type;

  • set the background color of the stripe and its content as well as the background image;

  • configure the full content border, or do it separately for each side with an option to customize the border color;

  • hide the stripe for desktop or mobile view here if you want some stripes not to be displayed in some versions;

  • specify the stripe type below – HTML, AMPHTML, or both types.

In the "Data" tab, you can:

  • Configure stripe just like smart element.

Smart Elements are functionality that allows you to automate email production. This is a true time-saver for those who build multiple product cards and email digests. You configure them once and use them across numerous promo campaigns.
