Concept

The WYSIWYG (“what you see is what you get”) editor is used in several areas of the app, including the email wizards (sending email and email templates), user signatures, dynamic content, the email preferences and unsubscribe pages, forms (before and after content), and landing pages (the landing page builder and Opening General content).

This wizard contains many design options for creating and editing content. Below is more information about each.
