Using the spell check and grammar check

By Preparing your Design for Sending

Spell and grammar checking

Like any emails that you send, you always want to check your spelling and grammar. Sometimes, we place too much focus on the design that we forget to proof read. Mail Designer 365 makes it easy to check your spelling and grammar. You can select a specific text area or highlight specific sentences or paragraphs that you want checked. Then choose “Edit” > “Spelling and Grammar.”

You have the option of checking your spelling while typing, checking your grammar with spelling, or automatically correct your spelling.

In addition, you can choose to check the entire document by choosing “Check Document Now.”

Choosing your language

We understand that language is important in communication. There are also regional differences that can make spell check a bit tricky. However, with Mail Designer 365, you can choose your own language. Mail Designer 365 will understand that there are spelling differences between American English and British English.

To select your language of choice, choose “Edit” > “Spelling and Grammar” > “Show Spelling and Grammar:”

A pop up will appear that will let you choose a language. Just click on the “Automatic by Language” drop down menu:

You can choose from one of the listed languages:

Checking your design for issues

By Preparing your Design for Sending

It’s always good to review your email

Mail Designer 365 is continuously scanning your design for issues that can occur. For example, too many animated graphics or other things in your template can affect the experience
of your design.

As soon as Mail Designer 365 finds an issue you will get a notification in the top right corner of the Mail Designer 365 window. The badge shows you how many issues Mail Designer found.

Open the check window, to see the issues Mail Designer 365 found. You will also get a description about the issues found, so you can make the necessary changes.

In the example the link is incorrect and might not work:

Saving your design

By Preparing your Design for Sending

Preparing your design for sending

Once your design is finished, you can save it for later reuse. Choose “File” > “Save” from the menu bar.

You can give your new template a name. Save your design into an existing category or create a new one. You can also save your template to the section ”Design Ideas.”

You’ll find your design in the Design Chooser under the category you saved it in, or you can also see all the designs you’ve created under “My Designs.” In the Design Chooser window, select a template and click “Edit” to open it for making changes. The “Edit” button can be found at the bottom right of the window.
