Email Design Tools for Mobile – Multi-Column Settings

Some of the best looking emails use columns to display images and text in various combinations. On desktop, this is a great way to break up your content and draw your reader’s eye to the most important message of your email. However, when this content is adapted for a mobile device, multiple columns can either appear condensed, in the wrong order, or simply be confusing to navigate.

Mobile email example

To help ensure your email design displays correctly on desktop and mobile, we’re introducing new mobile layout tools. When you select a multi-column section, you can choose between three different options for how this content will display on a mobile device:

  • Stack columns (default)
  • Stack columns in reverse
  • Keep side-by-side

[su_custom_gallery source=”media: 4596″ limit=”1″ link=”lightbox” width=”700″ height=”400″ title=”never”]

[su_custom_gallery source=”media: 4597″ limit=”1″ link=”lightbox” width=”700″ height=”400″ title=”never”]

Tip: The ‘stack columns in reverse’ feature can be handy when you have multiple columns with text and images in alternating order. When you select this setting for a particular column section, the order of the columns will be flipped in a mobile view. This allows you to choose the order of the content blocks for mobile display.
