The editor bar

Emails can now be stylized using the top rich text editor bar, instead of needing to use HTML.

Using the editor bar you can bold, and italicize text as well as create headers, and quotes. The undo and redo buttons allow you to quickly revise content, and you can insert images, links, and short-codes. 

Inserting images

To insert a photo, click the image icon in the editor bar, paste the image link and click "Add image".
