The Content Editor is a powerful tool designed for copywriters and marketers to seamlessly manage and modify the content of their projects without compromising design integrity. Unlike the Design Editor, which focuses on layout and design changes, the Content Editor provides a safe environment for content creators to work efficiently.

You CAN

  • Add, remove, arrange, and resize sections (based on a template)

  • Change copy (text), images, shapes, videos, links

  • Configure elements

You CAN NOT

  • Add, remove, reposition, or resize elements

  • Change the style of elements, such as text font and color

The Content Editor is accessed:

  1. From the Dashboard:

    • Click on the project card.

  2. From the Design Editor:

    • Click on "Content" in the bottom-left bar.

If you're on the Organization plan which allows for specific roles, Content Editors will automatically enter the project in the Content Editor mode.
