Get started with EasyEditor's user interface


In our EasyEditor, templates are made up of groups of drag-and-droppable building blocks.


A building block can be text, an image, a combination of an image and text, a button, and so on. These blocks can simply be dragged and dropped into your template.


The available building blocks are displayed in the Build area on the left-hand side of your screen, and the blocks list is automatically expanded when you open your template.

The EasyEditor toolbar is displayed above your template and is greyed out when your template first opens. This toolbar is dynamic and will change depending on whether you're editing text or images.


You can expand an accordion menu in the tools area by clicking on its header, and you can switch between the Build and Styles sections by clicking on the tabs.

  • Build - allows you to add building blocks and images
  • Styles - allows you to apply styles such as background colours and overall colour themes, borders and padding, and device display options 

If you click in a text area on the template, then the toolbar will display options related to working with text.


If you click on an image in the template, the toolbar switches to display image-related options. The tools area will also automatically expand for 'Images'.

Above the EasyEditor toolbar, there are a few other options available.


Here you can use the Undo and Redo icons, open a preview, perform a test send, or access the Utilities menu.

There are also options to save your campaign or template. The Save & continue button takes you to the next step in the campaign creation process, which is creating the plain text version of your campaign.
