Detaching certain layout blocks

What happens when I detach?

When you detach a layout block from the desktop version, it allows you to make changes for a layout block on the mobile version without touching the desktop version.

In order to detach a layout block, just drag the border line of an image area or text area. A popup will appear. The message informs you that resizing the area will separate the mobile and desktop version. Click “Separate” so that you can edit the mobile version without affecting the desktop version.

Or go to the mobile version of your email design.

Afterwards, you can double click on any image area. Then, click detach. 

he layout block will get a ”MOBILE MODIFIED” flag on the right, which informs you that this layout block differs from the desktop version.

Remember that all the changes you make to this layout block will now only apply to the mobile version.
