Buttons are a great way to highlight an important call to action in your email. Good news! It's easy to make your own buttons in the system. You can create your own awesome buttons by using the blank button graphics in our Files and Images manager!
Here is a list on what we will be covering in this article (click to skip ahead):
- How to access the files and images manager
- Select a blank button to edit as your own
- Editing the button in the image editor
If you wish to have more control over customising a button to use or would like a button to be a specific colour, please feel free to check out the article on how to Create a Button using a third party product such as Paint.
Click the 'Files and Images' menu item on the left.
Your File Manager will pop up and look something like this:
First lets change the folder in the top left corner from 'Default' to 'Buttons'.
Now that we have done this, find a blank button that you like and select it then click the arrow in the bottom right corner to view details.
Next, click the 'Edit' link which is to the right hand side of where the button is being shown.
This is the editing section of the File Manager:
If you click 'Text' up the top left of the editor, this will allow you to add text to your new button.
Click the + button to add in some placeholder text. Double click on the text to edit it and enter in your text. While the text is still highlighted, choose your colour from either the pre-selected colours, or click on the colour picker (the palette icon) and then choose your font from the drop down menu.
When you're done, click away from the text within the button graphic to deselect it. You can then click and drag the text to position it.
Once you're happy with the button, click 'save' to overwrite the original, or 'Save as New' to create a new image, in the upper left corner.
Give the button a name if you're saving as new, otherwise your new button is complete and ready for use!
