2. Right-click in the toolbar area and select "Customize the Ribbon".

3. Select "Attach File" and then click Add button so that it can be added to your toolbar. Press the OK button to confirm.

Email design tips

  • Page Size: in order to export a design to HTML designs, it must be a single page. The page should be up to 816 x 3000 px. Smaller designs optimizes email load time.

  • Text size: ensure legible text by using a text size of at least 16pt.

  • Interactive elements: interactive elements like forms and polls are displayed but not interactive in an HTML export. Embedded hyperlinks are functional in an HTML export.
