Content Builder vs. Content Studio
First, check if you're working in the Content Builder or the Content Studio.
In the top bar of your editing interface, you'll see which content editor you're working in.
Depending on your plan and user role, you're working with the Content Builder, Content Studio, or both — allowing you to use the switch.
📖 To learn more about the differences between these two content editors, read our article Content Builder vs. Content Studio: What's the difference?
In the image below, you can see the various options that you'll find in your content editor. We'll briefly describe each component, and link to articles with more in-depth information.
Menu — Here, you manage pages, set up your brand, go to the media library, and manage settings.
- Save Doc as a template — By saving your Doc as a template, you empower your team to create on-brand content with just a few clicks.
- View modes — Use the different view modes to fine-tune your content for different screen sizes (desktop, tablet, and mobile).
- Content Builder vs. Content Studio — The Content Builder lets anyone quickly create on-brand content, regardless of skill. Want more creative freedom? Design bespoke content at scale with the Content Studio.
- Review mode — Review mode lets your team leave comments on a Doc. Collaborate with reviewers to process feedback and publish faster.
- Undo/redo — With the undo/redo feature, you can revert your edits. This empowers you to experiment with content more freely.
- Preview — You can preview your Foleon Doc to see what it looks like outside our editor.
- Publish — Once your content is done, and you’re ready to share it with the world, you can publish it.
- Blocks - Blocks are the base for every page. Columns and elements can only be added to a page if there is a block on the page to put them in.
- Elements - Elements are all the content types that can be used in a Foleon Doc and can be added to any column.
- Copy to clipboard — Copy blocks, columns, and elements to your clipboard to reuse them — on any page in any Foleon Doc. This lets you work faster in the editor without saving content as a template.
This important menu lets you navigate to the following options:
- Pages — Every Foleon Doc consists of pages. Pages hold all of your content, which includes Blocks, Columns, and Elements.
- Brand — Each Foleon Doc also has its own brand settings. This is where you set global styling that applies to an entire Doc. You can edit and save style elements like fonts, buttons, and text links — to use them throughout your Foleon Doc.
- Media library — You add images, videos, and documents to your Foleon Doc. Where do these assets live? The Media Library helps you organize these content assets. In this article, we discuss how the media library works, and how to manage your files.
- Doc settings — Here, you can control the 4 tabs of your general Foleon Doc settings: Basics, Marketing, Navigation, and Access Control. These settings apply to the specific Foleon Doc you are working on. Learn more about these settings in our article About Foleon Doc settings.
- Page settings — The page settings allow you to control the settings that apply to that specific page of your Foleon Doc.
- Navigation bar — The navigation is really helpful for readers who read through your content, but in the editor, it can sometimes get in your way. It's visible by default, but you can toggle it off if you are working on your content.
- Show spacing — Toggle off show spacing to hide the spacing of your Foleon Doc. Toggling this off can help with a smooth content creation experience.
Save Doc as a template
You've created a Foleon Doc that ticks all the boxes, and you want to use it as a starting point for new compelling content. By saving your Doc as a template, you empower your team to create on-brand content with just a few clicks.

One of our favorite Foleon features is that every piece of content you create is responsive out of the box. However, you can use the view modes to fine-tune your content for different screen sizes.
📖 Learn more in our article Using view modes.
Review mode lets your team leave comments on a Doc. Collaborate with reviewers to process feedback and publish faster.
💡This feature is available for select plans. If you're interested in this functionality, contact our Customer Success Management team.
With the undo/redo feature, you can revert your edits. This empowers you to experiment with content more freely.
📖 Learn more in our article All about undo/redo.
You can preview your Foleon Doc to see what it looks like outside our editor. If you’ve already published your Doc, the preview feature also allows you to preview your changes before setting them live.
The preview URL is freely shareable and accessible to anyone with the URL, even if they don’t have a Foleon account. If you want to share a preview of your Foleon Doc with someone, simply send them the preview URL.
💡 The preview of your Foleon Doc can’t be found through search engines and is only accessible to those that have the URL.
Once your content is done, and you’re ready to share it with the world, you can publish it! During publishing, we optimize the Foleon Doc for search engines, fine-tune the imagery, and make it available on a hostname of your choice. You can always update a published Foleon Doc at any time by republishing it.
When you are ready to take your Foleon Doc live, click on Publish in the top right corner of the editor.

Next, you will see a pop-up with the final publish button and what your Foleon Doc URL will be.
Blocks are the base for every page. Columns and elements can only be added to a page if there is a block on the page to put them in. In the editor, we provide a wide variety of template blocks to choose from. These template blocks already contain columns and elements.
📖 Read more about it in our article Working with blocks.
Elements are all the content types that can be used in a Foleon Doc and can be added to any column. Elements like headings, text, buttons, forms, and hotspots can be dragged and dropped into any of your columns. You can find all available elements from the element button on the left sidebar.
In the Content Builder, you can't add any elements.
📖 Learn more about the different elements in our article Working with elements.
