How do I change the properties of a row?
This article applies to both versions of the builder in all BEE Pro plans.
Every design created in BEE includes at least one row. Rows are the primary structural element for any email or page you create in BEE Pro. Any content block that you drag and drop onto the builder stage is placed into a row.
Rows allow your design to be mobile-responsive. They adjust their width automatically to fit the screen of the device that the design is viewed on. In other words, there are no hard-coded values applying to row size. You can see this behavior with both the builder stage and export output.
By selecting an entire row, you can apply design elements to several content blocks at the same time. Here's how you can select and work with rows:
1. Hover your mouse over an empty area on the stage, either to the left or right of the content area width.
2. Click outside of the content area to select the entire row.
Once selected, the builder sidebar will reflect several row properties. You can use these options to apply design elements to the entire row.
Row properties include:
- Row background color
- Content area background color
- Vertical alignment
- Content area rounded corners
- Content area border
- Mobile optimization options
- Do not stack on mobile the content of the row
- Reverse stack on mobile
- Hide on mobile/desktop
- Row background image
- Display conditions*
- Add and customize the column settings

Hi Nick, not yet, but this is a limit we would like to overcome soon. In the meantime, we recommend using custom HTML for special layout needs, we know that it's not ideal, but may be of help in some cases.
Can I have a row with 5 columns?
