Edit the Text Version of your Email Campaign

UPDATED: July 2018

 

 

The information below applies only to templates in our Second Generation Editor. Templates in our Third Generation Editor do not have access to the text or HTML version.

 

-----

Editing the text version of your emails is quick and easy.  All you have to do is click the Text button in the dark gray bar!

When editing this section of your campaign though, keep the following in mind: 

  • All edits to the text version should be done after all edits are completed in the Design (or HTML) version.  The Text version will automatically sync with the Design version to get all of the latest changes.  As soon as the Text version is edited, it will no longer sync up with the Design Version
  • If you are copying emails where you have edited the text version, make sure to go back and edit any place needed in the Text Version, as this will not update, even after a copy
  • The text version is meant to be basic, so there is no styling of the text (i.e. bold, italic, colors, etc.).  
  • If you ever want to sync the Text version to the Design version again, click the Use Default button on the left side of the screen.  This will sync the two versions together along with any future changes to the Design version.  Keep in mind that by using this button all changes to the Text Version will be lost.
