Designing with Saved Rows
This article applies to all BEE Pro plans. However, some features may be limited or unavailable on the Free plan.
This article provides an in-depth look at some of the more advanced saved row features in BEE Pro. If you're just getting started, we recommend reading our Saved Rows article first.
Update a row's content
There may come a time when you need to make some adjustments to a row you've already saved. That's not a problem! There are a couple of ways you can update the content for your saved row.
Updating in the Builder
Before you start, identify whether you're working with a standard or a synced row. (Not sure how to do this? Check out our Synced Rows documentation.)
This process looks a bit different depending on the type of row you're working with.
To update a standard row, click the Save icon for your row again. Any time you hit save on a row you already saved, you can choose to:
- Use the Save as new button to create a new version of the existing row. Make sure to give it a new name!
- Update the existing row.
- Change the Category to which the row is assigned. You can also create a new category by typing after you click on the dropdown.*
*Categories are not available in the Free plan. You can only use the "My Saved Rows" category option.
When you click on the edit icon for a synced row, a modal provides two options:
- Edit and update everywhere, which will direct you to the Row builder described below. Jump to Updating from the Library for more info.
- Unsync this row, which you can use to edit the content directly in the builder.
If you opt to unsync your row, please note that it does not automatically become a standard saved row. We talk at length about this in our Synced rows article. You'll need to save the row again if you want to create an alternative version of your saved row.
Updating from the Library
In other cases, you might know you need to update a saved row before you start working in the builder.
When you open the My Rows tab in your Library, you'll find all the information about your saved rows. This includes the option to Edit row when you hover over the saved row thumbnail.
When you click Edit row, this launches the Row Builder. You'll notice there is no Settings tab in the sidebar; the only options you have are Content and Row. However, there are some limitations with the Row tab. Notably, you can not add more rows to your design. You can only update the settings for the existing row (e.g., mobile optimization features and column settings).
When you complete your updates and exit the row builder, you land back on the My rows of the Library. Note that the Row Builder is the only place where you can modify a synced row. If you try to edit a synced row inside a design, you're automatically redirected to the Row Builder.
There are other options you have with your saved rows from your Library. For further information, please refer to Managing saved rows.
Update a row's details
You can manage your standard rows directly inside the builder! When you view your saved rows in the builder's Row tab, you'll first see a preview image. Below the preview, you will see the name on the left and an options icon on the right.
Upon clicking the options icon, you'll see two options:
- Edit details
This options icon is not available for Synced rows. When you view a synced row in the sidebar, you'll see the Synced icon instead. These types of rows must be managed through your Library. For more details, please see Managing Saved Rows.
Editing row name and category
Have you ever found two saved rows by the same name when working in the builder? This can create some confusion for your designers. To fix this, use the Edit details option directly in the builder. This opens the same modal that you see when updating the design for standard saved rows.
From this modal, you can change the row name (or save it under a different name) or move it to a different category. You can also create a new category by typing a new category name in the field.
Deleting saved rows
If you find a row that you no longer need, you can easily delete it while inside the builder. Select the Delete option from the options dropdown menu. You'll be asked to confirm the action.
You'll receive a confirmation message that states your row has been deleted.
