What is the Slot Spacing and how can you use it to design your newsletter

The true secret of a successful email campaign lies in taking a genuine interest in all its details. That is why when you design your latest newsletter using our platform's Editor, you will find that you can bring your newsletter to absolute perfection with ease.

After you have defined 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 useful options contained in the settings is the Slot Spacing. 

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.slot_spacing_and_use_1.png

Make sure that you choose a Container that has at least two slots in it - anything but a Full Width Container will serve as a fine example (changing the Slot Spacing on a Full Width Container option will have no effect, as there are no two distinct slots to create space in between). Additionally, make sure that your Container has a few Elements and content of your choice (images, text, etc) added to it so that it is clearly discernible how changing the Slot Spacing affects the look of your newsletter design.

2. Click on the up/down arrows, located next to the Slot Spacing setting on the left side of your Editor page.

The value has a range from 0 up to 2000 pixels. Increasing the amount increases the distance between the row's various slots. 

3. Type in the exact Slot Spacing number of your choice in the available field.slot_spacing_and_use_2.png

It is easy to see that the distance between the slots of the row changes in size when you change the Slot Spacing. However, if you find yourself still feeling unsure about what the spacing is, you might want to momentarily change the Row Color option to something other than the default transparent option so that the spacing between the slots stands out more.

Now that you are familiar with how the spacing between the slots of each row works, make sure you take advantage of it to tweak your design and make it look perfect.
