Use the helper grid to design a newsletter

The Helper grid in the Campaign Editor enables you to design your newsletter easily by knowing where you can add your design components. When switched on, you can get suggestions where you can add a layout or an item in the editing area. This is an alternative to the drag and drop process of adding layoutsand items to fill up the empty workspace.

To use the Helper grid:

  1. On the top menu, click the switch to enable the Helper grid. The editing area now changes to grid view and shows buttons for adding items and layouts.
    Note: If you are starting a design from scratch, you must first click Choose Layout to add your first layout. Then in the Start building your layout dialog, click a layout that you want to add to the newsletter.
  2. Click Add layout or Add item to continue designing. The available layouts or items are displayed in the editing area. 

  3. Continue building your newsletter design by adding more items or layouts.
    When you have added all the layouts and items, you can edit them as usual. You can click the switch to disable the Helper grid to check how your design looks and then enable it to add more layouts and items as needed.
