Global Variable Missing

Question asked by Samantha Cossum on Feb 8, 2019
Latest reply on Apr 29, 2019 by Samantha Cossum

I'm working on a new email template and I'm trying to figure out if I've messed up my global variable or if I need to log a support ticket.

 

We want a global variable for the email background color so I created the variable Email Background Color and have reference it on line 207 to set the color. However, when we open the email in the editor it is not showing up as a global variable. I've got my code below if anyone has any suggestions on what may be happening.

Set the email width. Defined in two places:
1. max-width for all clients except Desktop Windows Outlook, allowing the email to squish on narrow but never go wider than 680px.
2. MSO tags for Desktop Windows Outlook enforce a 680px width.
Note: The Fluid and Responsive templates have a different width (600px). The hybrid grid is more "fragile", and I've found that 680px is a good width. Change with caution.
