Creating a new project
When you launch the plugin for very first time, click on
Create a new project. Marka will create a new frame with 600px width and autolayout.
Adding an existing project to the plugin
If you have exiting email project, run plugin, select the frame with project and click
Creating a mobile layout
There are two options how you can create a mobile layout.
1. Responsive mode
Mobile version creates automatically based on
Auto layout and
Constraints settings of a desktop frame.
Pros: Lower file size, less code
Cons: You need to pay attention to
Auto layout settings of each element.
2. Breakpoints mode
Pros: You no need to adjust any
Auto layout settings. Easier to control elements on mobile version
Cons: Bigger file size and more code
In this mode you can design a special frame for desktop and mobile layouts.
If you don't need a mobile layout for a template, select a
Breakpoints mode and use only desktop layout
Editing background of a email template
Plugin gets the background settings from the parent of the email project. You can adjust color of the canvas, or set an image for parent frame of a project
Template file size
For emails file size should not exceed 100KB because of Gmail. Gmail may cut emails bigger than 100KB, so I recommend to use
Minify HTML option.
