Using the WYSIWYG editor vs. the Drag-and-Drop editor

MailUp has a drag and drop editor that allows you to create messages quickly and easily. it's called Bee.

  • When you create a message with Bee, you do not have access to the HTML.
  • With the WYSIWYG editor, you cannot drag-and-drop content into the message, but you can access the HTML.
  • You can start a message with Bee and then futher edit it with the WYSIWYG editor, if you need to edit the underlying HTML

In the WYSIWYG editor, all related tools are grouped together and easy to reach: use the tabs on top of the ribbon to pick what you need.

Use the HTML button in the bottom left to view and edit the HTML source code.

Special features

Under the Insert tab you will find several features that are specific to MailUp.

Subscription

Select text or an image and click on...

  • "Unsubscribe link" to insert a link that will allow recipients to unsubscribe from that list.
  • "Profile update link" (or "Autoprofile link") to insert a link to a Profile Update form
