Letter Structure
/documentation/pages/Desktop/Guide/Design/View/Letter/Letter Structure.xml
Before jumping in and creating a Letter, it's helpful to familiarize yourself with the Letter Editor. Each letter is divided into regions, and these regions are separated in the Letter Editor through the use of title bars. Each of these bars has an outline button which allows you to show or hide regions. Clicking the button when it displays the minus symbol (-) hides the region(s), while clicking the outline button while it displays the plus symbol (+) shows the region(s). These buttons only affect what displays in the Letter editor, they do not change how the Letter appears when it is printed or previewed. as you work with the editor, you may find these buttons helpful in reducing the amount of clutter you see on the screen.
