Working with borders

For those structural and content elements where you can set a border, you have the option to do so for all sides, or for each side individually. This gives you flexibility in setting the look and feel of your email message.

If you create a message with two or more columns, you can edit the border for each column:

- click outside the area of the contents to select the entire row (on the right side you will see the menu displaying the two different columns)


- click on column 1 to edit the properties of the first content

- you can choose which side you want to edit (More options), the style (solid, dotted, dashed), the size and the color of your borders. 


- click on column 2 to create the same style

    Hi Massimo, we have a bug with borders, is this a good place to report it?

    On a multi-column layout (2-4 columns) when setting Borders on the different columns they end up being different heights because the inner-content of each "box" is different.

    Would it be possible to either

    1) Make it so that border on "column 1" and "column 2" are same height
    2) Have a separate "structure border" setting?

    Our use case is that we want to have a single nice border around the whole email, but email is made up of 1- and 2-column structures. So the TOP structure gets a LEFT, TOP, RIGHT border, the BOTTOM structure gets a LEFT, BOTTOM, MIDDLE border, and all middle structures only get LEFT and RIGHT borders. and this works great if they are All 1-column structures. This all breaks down when it's a multi-column structure.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Thank you!

    Hey @Massimo, can you please update how we can resolve this multicolumn border issue?
    While using multi-columns row, if the content of sibling columns differs from each other then the borders around the columns do not match the height of parent row. This results in different borders around different columns in a single row.

    Hi Raviraj, thanks for reaching out. Borders in a multi-column row will only extend as far as the content entered in each column. which can cause border alignment issues when the columns have different lengths. To prevent this issue, we recommend using content that is all the same size in multi-column rows (i.e. all images have the same dimensions). With that being said, I'm happy to pass along your feedback about this to our Product team for consideration as well!
