When you design a campaign in MailChimp, you can use the style editor to apply global styles like font family, background color, line height, and text color to your email.
If you're applying styles to your text using the style editor but your content isn't updating to match, there may be some conflicting styles hidden in the source of your content. Conflicting styles often make their way into campaigns when content is copied and pasted from an outside source like a web page or word processing program. To get rid of any conflicting styles, you'll need to remove or 'clear' these styles from your content.
In this article, we'll show you how to use the Clear Styles tool on our content editor toolbar to clear styles from your content.
Clear text styles
- On the Design step of the Campaign Builder, click the edit button.
- Highlight the text you'd like to change. If you need to clear styles for the entire text area, use the select-all option in your web browser to highlight all of the text.
- Click on the Clear Styles option on the editor toolbar. This removes the formatting applied to your text, but not the text itself.
- Once you've cleared styles, highlight the text you'd like to format and set the correct formatting using the style editor again.
If you've copied your content from Word, clearing styles may not remove extra formatting that Word can produce. For more information on how to clean up content that's been copied from Word, have a look at this article.
