In the Creative Designer, when selecting an element, several options specific to the type of content selected are displayed in the Settings pane. You can use these options to easily change the style of your email.
See an example in this section.
Adjust the settings according to your needs. Each selected element offers a different set of settings.
You can insert backgrounds, change sizes, modify horizontal or vertical alignment, manage colors, add padding or margin, and so on.
To do this, use the options displayed in the Settings pane or add inline styling attributes.
Margin: this setting enables you to manage the space between the element's border and the next element.
Before adjusting Padding and Margin, make sure that you select the relevant element (structure component, column or content component) that you want to act upon. Depending on your selection, the result will not be the same.
For both Padding and Margin, click the lock icon to break synchronization between top and bottom or right and left parameters. This enables you to adjust each parameter separately.
You want to adjust padding and vertical alignment inside a structure component composed of three columns. To do this, follow the steps below:
In the Creative Designer interface, when you select an element and display its settings on the side panel, you can customize the inline attributes and their value for that specific element.
The styling is then applied to the selected element. If the child elements do not have specific styling attributes defined, the styling of the parent element is inherited.
Customizing the style of an email within the content editor is similar to editing this element in a landing page. See Managing landing page structure and style.
