There are multiple options to edit content: (1) use the editor, (2) add snippets, (3) edit images or (4) add RSS messages.
In the editor on the left hand side of the screen the content of an e-mail can be edited. Click the content you want to edit and use the context menu to edit the content.
With various parts in the template, for instance texts or images, a number of icons are shown. The table below provides a description for each of these symbols.
|Edit content / text|
|Select and edit (rotate/mirror) image TIP: An image can be dragged into the content from the Images tab (when using ternair-img)|
|Copy this content block|
|Delete this content block|
|Add info/context to an item: for example alt-text, tooltip, hyperlink (on image)|
|Undo / rotate image left|
|Redo / rotate image right|
|Mirror image horizontally|
|Mirror image vertically|
|Go to the parent block|
|Indicates the type of html block that is selected. When HTML editing is allowed (Options tab) the HTML hierarchy is displayed in the tooltip.|
|Indicates the type of image block that is selected. When HTML editing is allowed (Options tab) the HTML hierarchy is displayed in the tooltip.|
Move over an icon with your mouse to see which part of the template can be edited via that icon. Depending upon the available action the selected part of the template lights up in a certain color.
You can undo/redo changes by using the ‘Undo’ and ‘Redo’ buttons on the top left.
Use the buttons on the top right for a preview of the e-mail on desktop (default) or mobile device.
It is also possible to define a landing page in Ternair Campaign and invoke this page from the e-mail. A landing page can be used for a so-called ‘soft landing’ from your e-mail, since someone clicking a link in the e-mail will not directly be send to a general page on your website but to a custom page in stead. For example a promotion page containing an offer specifically for the recipients of your e-mailing.
A landing page can be created in the template section of Ternair Campaign.

|Images that have been added on the Images tab (via the + icon) can be used in the content of the e-mail block in which they have been added.|
The images can be used to replace images (with a ternair-img class) in the e-mail. Drag an image to the left and release it once a green border is visible around the image you want to replace.
Depending on the class that is used (ternair-img or ternair-img-expert) several editing options are available for images that are placed in an e-mail.
– ternair- img: rotate, mirror, alt-text, tooltip, hyperlink
– ternair-img-expert: rotate, mirror, alt-text, tooltip, hyperlink, crop, resize
