Mail Designer 365 1.5 Update Guide

By 8. January 2019 January 10th, 2019 Mail Designer 365 Blog

What better way to ring in the new year than with a brand new Mail Designer 365 update? Mail Designer 365 version 1.5 introduces a range of exciting new features guaranteed to make email design easier and more productive.

As well as a set of elegant new design ideas, we’ve also made significant changes to our smartphone editor and introduced even more of the latest mobile devices to the device preview list…

Four new design ideas

To kick off 2019, we’ve added four new design ideas to our design library. These designs have been specially created for you to send as elegant New Year’s greetings to your customers and colleagues. You can access them in the Design Chooser:

Mobile styles

Mobile responsive design is about to get even easier thanks to the all new mobile styles feature in version 1.5. With mobile styles, you can now make adjustments to text styles which are only applied to your mobile layout. This makes it easier to carry out changes to your mobile layout, such as font size and line height, without needing to detach blocks.

Carry out style changes to your text in the smartphone view and you will see a list of your mobile adjustments while editing your design:

Mobile only style changes carried out in the smartphone view will be displayed in a blue box in the Style menu.

Important: Mobile Style Adjustments are not supported by non-Gmail addresses in the Gmail mobile app – check your design using the new Gmail (IMAP) preview. See our tutorial in the Mail Designer 365 Manual for a step-by-step guide.

New layout blocks

Version 1.5 also introduces two practical, new layout blocks to Mail Designer 365; offering you even more design flexibility…

Brand new device previews

We’re always looking for new ways to keep Mail Designer fresh and up to date. In this update, we’ve added three more device previews for the latest devices on the market. You can now find the iPad Pro 11″ and 12.9″ and the new MacBook Air 13″ in the preview list.

Changing to a Team plan just got even easier: You can now convert an existing single-user plan into a team plan at my.maildesigner365.com.

  • An issue with the color picker has been fixed
