The Rich Text Editor (RTE) appears throughout Marketo and is available whenever you want to add or edit content. You'll see a version of it on landing pages, programs, emails, forms, and snippets. Just click Edit Draft, and it'll pop up to serve you.

Editor Settings

The root block element setting defines which tags wrap your content. By default, the email root block element utilizes <p> tags. You have the option to change that by following the steps below.

Tip

While you have the option to choose your root block element, we always recommend using default settings for the best user experience.

1. Click Admin.

2. Click Email.

3. Click Edit Text Editor Settings.

4. In the Email / Snippet Editor drop-down, select <div> or None and click Save. <div> is used in this example.

If you have <div class=“mktEditable”></div> in an Email Template, you will see the following HTML Source behavior when you open the section and type “Text Goes Here” in the editor:

<p><div>None

<div class=“mktEditable”>
<p>Text Goes Here</p>
</div>

<div class=“mktEditable”>
<div>Text Goes Here</div>
</div>

<div class=“mktEditable”>
Text Goes Here
</div>

Tip

You can also change the Landing Page Editor's root block element by following the same steps, but clicking the Landing Page Editor drop-down in Step 4 instead of Email / Snippet Editor.

Note

The root block element is always <p> for rich-text program tokens.

You edit your HTML and text on separate screens. Be sure to click Copy from HTML on the Text tab and then Save so your text matches your HTML.

Note

You are not limited to the fonts in the drop-down. You can use one not listed by accessing the HTML code. All web fonts are supported in Marketo, but web fonts do not work universally in all email clients.
