Editor
The Editor is a visual HTML and CSS builder that you will use to create and edit Templates. The Editor uses drag-and-drop Components that make it simple to add Containers, Text, and Images to your Templates. Components can be styled by selecting them and editing their Props in the Toolbar.

Components

The Editor has several drag-and-drop Components that you can use to build your Templates. Below you will find a brief introduction to the available Components. Check out the Components section if you want to learn more about each Component, including all the available Props.
Each Component will have a unique ID that will be used to edit the Component Props with the API. You can find the Component ID by selecting the Component and viewing the ID at the top of the Toolbar.
