What is the Slot Vertical Align and how can I use it to design my newsletter ?

Just as your car runs more smoothly when the wheels are in perfect alignment, your newsletter will read, look and feel balanced and fare much better if everything is aligned just right. That's why when you design your latest newsletter using our super flexible Moosend Editor, you'll find that you can get down to the nitty gritty and bring your newsletter to absolute perfection with ease.

After you've begun defining your newsletter design's structure using the various Containers, you can also start adding Elements to each available slot, filling the structure with content. Each Container you use comes with its own fully customizable group of Container settings. One of the most practical options contained in the settings is the Vertical Align option available for each separate slot.

Let's see what it does:

1. Click on the Settings symbol, appearing on the right side of the Container when you place your mouse over it, to open the Container settings.

Make sure that you chose a Container that has at least two slots in it - anything but a Full Width Container will serve as a good example. Adding a Text element and some quick content will make the effect of a Vertical Align change on a slot clearly discernible.

2. Click on the Vertical Align drop-down menu, located on the left side of your Editor page, for the slot which you've filled with some text.

You have the following options:

  • Top
    Aligns the content of the slot to the top of the slot.

  • Middle
    Aligns the content of the slot to the middle of the slot.

  • Bottom
    Aligns the content of the slot to the bottom of the slot.

3. Choose the Bottom option.

The text you've added should move inside the slot according to the Vertical Align setting you chose.

Now that you're familiar with how the vertical alignment of each slot can be changed, make sure you take advantage of it to tweak your design and make it look just perfect!
