You can add signature elements (from the toolbox) to your email signature simply by dragging and dropping them onto the signature design. These elements are organised into logical groups, which can be collapsed and expanded as needed:
This article consists of the following sections:
Signature element properties
When you drop an element into your signature design, all associated properties are displayed immediately, for example:
You can either update the properties then and there, or close the window and update the properties later as the design evolves.
To access the property window later, simply click the required element in the signature design.
Understanding hierarchies and inheritance
As your signature design evolves, the notion of hierarchy and inheritance becomes relevant. At the most basic level (that is, when you have created a new blank signature and no elements have been added), you have a blank canvas:
Behind the scenes, this is a signature element: it is the first level of the signature hierarchy and has its own set of properties:
It can also be referred to as the overall parent element and any properties applied at this level are inherited by the signature elements that you add subsequently.
You can, of course, define properties for any of the signature elements (also referred to as the children). This will override the inheritance from any of their parent elements. And as the structure evolves, other elements will become parents themselves.
For example, if you add a table to the signature - you can define properties for the table as a whole (the parent), and/or for individual cells within it (also, any elements you add to the cells can inherit properties from the table cell, or have their own properties).
Also, some signature elements have a default parent/child hierarchy, because they are groups of individual fields. When you add one of these elements, each of the individual fields inherits the properties of the group - so they will all look and behave in the same way.
However, you can select any individual field and apply their properties - this will override the group properties for this field. For example, you might add Address Fields but then select the ZipCode field to set the font style to bold.
