Body, Structure and Content: How do they work?

If you used BEE v1: While in the first version of the BEE editor we wanted to focus mostly on content management, with v2 we decided to include more control on the email message structure.

Body

General settings for the message.

They are inherited by Structure and Content blocks. For example, the font family set in the message settings is then used everywhere in your message, except where you use a custom setting.

This is very useful to build a coherent message very quickly.

Structure

Here you can find different types of rows to insert into the message. 

Rows are structural units that define the horizontal composition of a section of the message by using columns. You can use from one to four columns.

Using more than one column allows you to put different content elements side by side.

You can add to your messages all the structural elements you need, regardless of the template you selected when you started.

Every row has its own settings, which gives you the kind of flexibility that before was only achieved with hand-coded email.

For example, you can select a background color for the entire row, only the message area, or a specific column within it.

Content

This section includes a series of tiles that represent the different kinds of content you can use in your message. More will become available in the future.

To use them, just drag one inside a column, it will auto-adjust to the column width.

Every content block has it owns settings, such as granular control on padding.
