The quickest way to add a new Hero is either to add a preset starter component (mostly from the β€œCTA” tab) or to use the Quick Add Element dropdown at the bottom of the plugin to insert a new blank Hero layer to your email design, when your Emailify email Figma frame is selected.

This will add a brand new empty Hero layer with a placeholder background image fill set on it.

You can then start populating it with content layers and customizing the styles (eg. adding a background, adjusting padding and spacing, etc) in Figma as needed.

If you need to use a background image for more than one column of content, you can also add background images to any 🚣 Row or 🎁 Wrapper layers, too.
🦸 Hero elements can only be added directly inside of βœ‰οΈ Email layers. 🦸 Hero elements cannot contain any πŸ›οΈ Column layers, as it doesn’t support multiple column layouts; instead, content layers are added directly inside of the frame, without needing any πŸ›οΈ Column layers (unlike a 🚣 Row element).
