How to resize a column in the signature

This post is also available in: Português

Resizing an email signature column is very easy and does not require any extra configuration. That way, you’ll have more control over the content blocks, creating an improved look and feel.

In this tutorial, we will cover all the steps for successfully resizing a column with the signature editor. And a video at the end with all the steps.

How to make it?

Before you start, you can change the size of a column in email signatures with 2 or 3 columns.

Here is an example of an email signature with 3 columns. When clicking on the outer border of the column, the Resize button appears. And then, click on it to change the width of that column.

Example with animation.

Original width 180px, changed to 120px.

In the next example, we have an animation for an email signature with 2 columns, and we are changing the size of the column on the right.

Other columns

You can change the size of other columns, not just the first one. The feature works the same way. Click on the outer border of the column and then on the Resize button.

Templates with a single column

Some signature templates are created with a single column. This way, the Resize button does not appear when clicking on the outer border.

See this example of a one-column signature.

Frequently asked questions

Here are some considerations when deciding to change the size of a column in your HTML email signature.

Can I add a value greater than the signature?

Not. The limit is the maximum size of the email signature template.

Can I remove a column?

Not. Email signature templates are created with fixed columns. If you choose a signature with 2 columns, it is impossible to change to 1 column or add another one. An alternative is to choose a new template or create from scratch.

Is it possible to change the global width of the email signature?

Not. If you choose a signature template with 600px, you cannot change it to 480px or 320px wide.

Is it possible to reposition the columns?

We do not have this feature in the editor. So, for example, moving a column from right to left and vice versa.
