Good news, email designers! We recently launched new and exciting BEE Pro updates that will help make your email design process smoother, faster, and easier. Today we’ll show you how to:
- Undo and redo changes as you design
- View the design history of an email—and rewind and fast-forward to any point in your recent edit history
- Export your email to PDF for improved share and review processes
Undo, redo, and view change history
Made a mistake while assembling your email? It happens to all of us. Now, you can easily undo (and redo) as you design in BEE Free and BEE Pro.
Here’s how it works: As soon as you make any updates or changes to an email, an Undo-Redo widget will appear at the bottom left corner of your design screen.
The widget includes Undo and Redo arrows to move easily between changes. The Undo widget currently remembers the 15 most recent changes in the current browser session (it does not remember changes that happened during a different session).
The clock icon, when clicked, expands to reveal a full timeline of all the latest changes:
For each event in the timeline, you’ll see:
- An icon to identify the type of content that was changed (an image, text box, and so on)
- A description of what changed (including the new value assigned to the element, if any—e.g., 5px)
- The time the change was made
When the timeline is open, you can click on any event to return to a previous version.
When you select a previous step in the timeline, the content or row that was edited becomes highlighted. This way, you can easily spot the change within the email itself.
Note: When you go back in time, the timeline for more recent changes remains available, allowing you to move forward again, without losing any of the edits.
Now it’s easier than ever to fine-tune your emails and toggle between drafts. We hope you get a lot of use out of this new feature, and that it makes your design process better and easier!
Export emails to PDF
If you ever want to quickly send a work-in-progress email design with colleagues, this new feature should streamline your process. You can now turn any email into a PDF in both the BEE Free and BEE Pro platforms. This means you can now share your PDF email in Slack, print it out, email it, etc.
Downloading any message to PDF is easy. From the Projects screen, use the Edit drop-down menu to choose Export.
On the pop-up screen, simply tap Download a PDF file.
Then, you can choose which size you want your PDF to be.
Finally, click Download Your File, and there you have it!
