Get to Know the Popup Editor

Get to know the Popup Editor

Pagecloud gives you the flexibility to design a custom, responsive popup or banner without code. You can create popups that seamlessly integrate into your website and match the look and feel of your brand.

The popup editor is similar to the Pagecloud website editor.  All your design and layout features are available in the editor. 

Responsive Canvas

Your canvas is your editing space. The popup and banner canvas is a responsive experience, meaning your design will automatically reflow to fit the size of your canvas. 

If you resize your browser window, your popup and banner will resize itself. This means you do not need to re-design your popup or banner for mobile or tablet devices.

Your popup will look great on all screen sizes! 

Mobile Compatibility

Our templates are all optimized for mobile compatibility. Popups with 2 columns will stack in mobile for a vertical orientation. 

Top toolbar

At the top of your Popup editor you have some useful navigation and editing tools. 

Dashboard:  The dashboard button in the top left corner will bring you back to your dashboard.

Edit Menu

The Edit Menu is the floating rectangle on your canvas. You can move your Edit Menu anywhere on your canvas. Your Edit Menu is your hub for styling, positioning, and creating layouts for your popup or banner. 

Selecting objects 

When you click an object on your popup or banner, your Edit Menu displays what you have selected. For example, if you click a textbox, your Edit Menu will say Text at the top, confirming you are currently editing your text.

You have different editing functions in each layer.
