Hiding certain layout blocks

Dedicated layout blocks for specific versions

Mail Designer 365 allows you to add a dedicated layout block for the mobile version of your template. You can also hide certain layout blocks in the mobile version. If you hide certain layout blocks in the mobile version, then Mail Designer 365 will only display these layout blocks in the desktop version of your email design. If you hide certain versions in the desktop version, then Mail Designer 365 will only display these layout blocks in the mobile version of your email design. On the right, you will notice flags like “MOBILE ONLY” to indicate that this only applies to the mobile version.



In order to hide a layout block, click the little eye icon on the left border of a layout block.

You will find that the layout block will disappear. In its place, you will see a little flag with an eye symbol. Did you notice the number next to the eye symbol? This number stands for the number of layout blocks that are hidden for the mobile version.

If you hide multiple successive layout blocks for the mobile version, then the number in the arrow flag will increase.

You can switch back to the desktop editing mode. You will see a ”DESKTOP ONLY” flag for the layout blocks that are now hidden.
