When designing an email, several layouts can be created by combining icons or small images, often with some copy. Other designs may require to have a set of images, e.g. logos, without the constrictions of row structures.
That is why our drag and drop editor has an Icons content block for creating icon-based content.

How it works
You will find an Icons tile in the Content panel. Drag it into your design to get started.
In the Content properties section of the editor sidebar, click on Add new icon to add the first icon for your collection.
Then, click on Change image to select an image from the file manager.
Once done, you may edit the image with our image editor. Repeat this process until you complete your icon collection.
Click on "More options" to create an accompanying section of text that you can position on top, bottom, left, or right of the icon.
From this panel, you may also add a link for the icon and the image's alternate text.
If you need to reorder the collection, drag the icon box in the content properties area.
Scrolling down to the properties, you will see a few functions that are specific for Icons.
- Icon size (16, 32, 64 and 128px)
- Icon spacing (i.e. spacing between icons, from 0 to 20px)
- Icon padding (padding applied to each icon)
