Adjustable columns make laying out newsletters easy!

Creating a newsletter with multiple columns in ExpressPigeon is a snap.

With our intuitive email composer, users can simply drag-and-drop the desired width of your two, three or four column block without using code or changing templates. Best of all, there is no limit to the number of column blocks users can add to a newsletter.

Here are some examples of Express Pigeon's one, two, three and four column blocks.

Here is another example of the columned blocks but not in uniform order:

With perfectly aligned blocks, users are free to add text, images or other media and can watch the columns automatically adjust their height as needed. User defined column widths allow for independently adjustable content sections making for perfectly aligned sidebars and content sections. Simply just add text and images.

To add a column block to a newsletter, simply select the Plus Menu icon and then select the desired column block you wish to insert:

Once the block is inserted, it is easy to adjust the column width based on your content and preferences.  Simply drag the vertical spacer to the left or the right and the block's content will automatically adjust to your needs.

The height of the column block will also adjust automatically.

If you want to adjust all of your column blocks to be a uniform size, simply select the mark in the middle of the column spacer the the adjacent column blocks will snap to make a uniform alignment.
