We made the message editor as simple as we could, with the big emphasis of juggling multiple messages at once. The left panel displays the list of the campaign’s messages — so you can switch between them instantly, reorder them, and add new messages.
The editor has two tabs:
- Visual Editor — a classic “what you see is what you get” rich text editor. You can safely paste formatted text here from other platforms like Word, Pages, or Google Docs — it parses them well, while stripping off any unnecessary formatting.
- Markdown — if you’re a raving Markdown fan, then this tab allows you to speed up the process by pasting content directly from your Markdown editor of choice.
Between these two formats, we're addressing Markdown as "the source of truth." So if you try to manipulate styling or extra line breaks in the Visual Editor, it might not work out. Our goal is to promote a classic, clean layout with the focus on your content (regular paragraphs, headlines, etc).
In the editor, you’re working on the “email body” — actual email content. Before sending, we’ll add the footer section, which you can customize in Email Settings (learn more about it here).
Sending a test message
You can always test any message live in your inbox using the test feature. It’s available from the Options menu in the top right corner of the screen.
How will my messages look and feel?
Our default template looks like a simple text email, but slightly more polished. If you prefer sending long-form emails or articles, then you’ll appreciate nicely formatted headers (H1-H4), lists, etc. Here’s a snapshot of how a sample email would look in your inbox:
