The Letter Content Editor is used to format emails and mail letters in Appeal Mailings, Acknowledgements, and for constituent letters.

Important Tips for Formatting Your Documents:
  • The Content Editor uses HTML source code, which you can view at any time by clicking this icon: User-added image. You can also copy and paste HTML code into the HTML Source Editor Screen. 
  • If you are pasting your letter from a word processing application such as Microsoft Word, paste your content into Notepad before pasting into the Content Editor. Notepad will strip any access code that word processors may add that could potentially result in errors. 
  • To insert a single space, use Shift+Enter on your keyboard.
