I'm trying to edit the Seedcode newsletter example template in fmSpark and save it as an edited version. How do you change the intro section of the template? I'm trying to change the merge field after Dear <>, so it works with my contact database.

I can't see how to access that section while editing the template. I see the Headline1, Subhead1, Image1, Body1, etc., sections but none of these have the intro text that has the Merge field I need to change.

Thanks for the help with the newbie question, just got fmSpark integrated today and I'm dying to get it going for my client.

So in that example the "Dear..." is in the HTML stationery, right after the first instance of the comment separator...

<!-- ###################### -->

To get there click Settings then Developer Settings, then go to the HTML Stationery tab. Select the "SeedCode HTML Email Stationery" one and click on the source tab. Then scroll down until you see the first of those separators above. The code you're looking for should be shortly after it.

Hope that helps,

John
