Why should I Cascade blocks for responsiveness when I design my newsletter ?

It is logical to assume that not everyone uses their computer to check your email campaigns. But why just assume? You should get to know exactly what type of devices your subscribers use to browse their emails and see all the cool campaigns you send their way! Our super flexible Moosend Editor makes sure your campaign always looks the part, under any circumstance, and on any device.

After you've begun defining your newsletter design's structure using the various Containers, you should 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. The different Editor views allow you to work on both the desktop and mobile version of your newsletter, to ensure that it always looks flawless, no matter what device your recipients are using to view it! Specifically, the Mobile Newsletter view allows you to select the slot display of your choice and to choose whether or not to cascade blocks.

4. To switch to horizontal slot display, click on the button with the three horizontal dots.
