Mail Designer Pro 3.1.1: Leaner, faster-loading email newsletters

By | Company, Mail Designer | No Comments

Faster loading newsletters with PNG image compression in Mail Designer Pro 3.1.1

Modern eye-catching newsletters tend to use a lot of images and large photos. That can lead to large overall email files sizes that will take longer to load.
The latest Mail Designer Pro update (Download 3.1.1) now offers lossless PNG compression, which decreases the size of your graphics, logos and banners. The result? Leaner, cleaner, faster-loading email newsletters.

Mail Designer Pro automatically compresses images when you export – you’ll find it alongside the other Design Options

 

We’ve also made Mail Designer Pro a bit smarter about images: It now detects whether an image is a photo or a sales graphic and uses that to choose whether to save an image as a PNG or JPG file, while also keeping file-size and quality considerations in mind.

Other Improvements:

  • Animated gifs now loop correctly
  • PDF export: fix for transparencies
  • Web fonts are now loaded over HTTPS
  • We’ve re-structured the Export menu
  • A few formatting bugs have been fixed

Mail Designer Pro 3 is currently available for just $49.99, we also offer a free trial download.

Mail Designer Pro 3.1 Update: Gmail is now 100% mobile optimized

By | Company, Mail Designer | No Comments

mood

Gmail is one of the most popular email providers in the world and the default email app on many Android phones – that’s a lot of customers reading newsletters in the Gmail app. Until today, Gmail has only supported an ‘optimized’ newsletter view, where it would automatically take the desktop version of your email and tried to re-format it for smartphone screens – usually with mixed results.

iphones-vorher-nachher_enNow Gmail users will see your mobile-optimized layout exactly as you intended it: Google has updated Gmail with full support for mobile-optimized emails. So we’ve released Mail Designer Pro 3.1, an update that takes full advantage of the new Gmail features and lets you create newsletters that will look great in Gmail.

Gmail mobile-responsive facts

So what has Gmail changed exactly? Here are the details for fellow email-HTML nerds out there:

  • Gmail now pays attention to media queries, which allow us to show the mobile version of your newsletter to smartphones
  • There’s still no support for web-fonts, but you can configure fallback-fonts in Mail Designer Pro 3, for the best of both worlds
  • Technical fun fact: Attribute selectors aren’t supported, but CSS class definitions are – Mail Designer Pro takes your design and translates it into HTML and CSS styles that Gmail will display correctly
  • Roll-out status: Gmail’s mobile-responsive changes are already available in Gmail for Android, Gmail on the web and in Google Inbox on iOS. The Litmus team has more details on their blog.

New mobile design previews: iPhone 7 and Google Pixel

To help you to visualize what your design is going to look like, we’ve added a new smartphone design preview for Google’s new Pixel phone. It gives you an accurate Gmail-preview, complete with the fallback fonts you’ll see.

We’ve also added the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus (in Black and Jet Black) so you can get a feel for those new models as well.

Time-saving shortcuts

Try out some of the new keyboard shortcuts for a real productivity boost:

  • Command + G groups objects
  • Space + Enter adds a simple line break (instead of starting a new paragraph)
  • Command + N opens a blank design
  • Command + K add a link to the currently selected text

Version 3.1 also includes further compatibility improvements for Outlook and MailChimp, as well as performance optimizations. And you may have noticed that Mail Designer Pro now displays a notification once your test-email has been sent.

Get early access to upcoming Mail Designer Pro releases

Introducing the Mail Designer Pro Beta program! We love getting feedback from you guys, so experienced users can now activate Beta updates under Preferences > Updates. You’ll get early access to our public betas with new features, fixes and improvements.

We’re really stoked to support the new and improved mobile-responsive Gmail right from the get go. If you like the latest update, we’d appreciate a short review on the Mac App Store

Mail Designer Pro 3.0.6 — new Image-Workflows and Style improvements

By | Company, Mail Designer | No Comments

wood-coffee-laptop-hero-7094-2

Autumn is a golden time of year. A perfect time to cuddle up with your Macbook and let your creative juices flow. We hope that our newest update for Mail Designer Pro 3.0.6 inspires you to create even more amazing newsletters. We’re happy to announce that as of today you can download the Mail Designer Pro 3.0.6. The new version has a lot of improvements for creative professionals.

NEW: Replace Image

We’ve all been there: You’ve designed a great header image with the perfect font, logos, call-to-action button – everything. Then your clients asks you to change the background photo for something “more fun”. Ugh.

Introducing ‘Replace image’ – simply swap out any image for a “better” one, while keeping the size, position and layout of the original.

It’s easy to replace the original picture with a new one in exactly the same location, with the exact same size as before, and all of the original layout properties of the picture layout block. When you replace a picture, the graphics and fonts remain where and how they were.

Mini Makeover: Style improvement

It’s easy to lose track of everything when you use a lot of styles. You guys have told us what you like about styles and what needs improving: First off, the lock is gone. Next: we’ve improved the indicator that lets you know which style is currently selected. And we’ve also fixed a few bugs that could occur when switching between styles and ’No style’ text. And we’ve also removed the confusing ‘All emphases’ option – simply select all text and hit ‘Remove’ instead.

Additional Improvements

  • Shadows are exported correctly
  • The color picker has been improved and we’ve fixed some color profile issues that could lead to colors being slightly off
  • You can now hit Shift+Return to inert a simple line break instead of starting a new paragraph
  • Resizing with modifier keys works like in other apps
  • An issue that could cause exported PDFs to cut off has been fixed
  • Alignment guides are now underneath layout block edges, so they aren’t accidentally selected when you’re trying to adjust your layout

Let us know if you have any comments or thoughts on the new update! Your Mail Designer Pro Team
