  2. Choose Custom from the Image Size dropdown in the Template Editor toolbar.

Setting up an exclusive header

When you want to set a header and footer theme specific to a particular campaign that you're about to send, your process may look something like this: 
  1. Create a specific theme.
  2. Set this specific theme as your default header and footer.
  3. Send that particular campaign.
  4. Reset your theme again to the actual default theme you had.

There's a better way

If you feel the above process is a tad tedious, give this method a try:
  1. Create the required theme.
  2. After you've saved the content, you can select the specific theme from the Header and Footer theme dropdown.exclusive header 

 Alignment in parallel text components

    1. Font family
    2. Size
    3. Line height
  2. If you need one text component wider than other one then,
    1. Click in between the Column text component.

Button text size

Sometimes, you may put lengthy bit of content in a button component. When you fit such content in a button component, it does not look good.
If you feel that content that you've drafted needs to go into your campaign, go for the box component instead of the button component for a better look and feel. 

Boxed text formatting

Sometimes, you may have a requirement to present a content with increased indentation. You could:
  1. Insert a text component.
  2. Manually insert spaces or press the tab button.
This method may lead to formatting issues in some browsers and mobile devices.

There's a better way

Choose Boxed Text component. This has a specific indentation style by default and you can avoid all formatting issues as well. 

Email forwarding

Make it a point to add Tell a friend link in all of your  email campaigns and encourage your recipients to use that option instead of forwarding the email from their respective email services.
We recommend this method because most email services may not support some formatting styles. In those cases, forwarded emails will not have the formatting applied as you've sent it.
EU DC users have to follow the below steps to insert Tell a friend link: 
  1. From Navigation toolbar, click Settings and select Merge Tag.
  2. Copy the Tell a friend merge tag under the Header and Footer tags.
  3. Paste it in the content.
