I would like to format a campaign with information in two columns but then underneath that information have one column of information. Is there an option that doesn't affect the entire layout of the campaign? Thank you!

At the moment, there is not a built-in solution to facilitate the layout you're looking for. You can choose one column, right column, left column, equal columns or three columns. But no matter which column arrangement you select, those columns extend the length of your campaign. We cover our current layout offerings here:
http://myemma.com/resources/how-to/ar...

Though you won't find a multi-column option in the editor yet, our product team is currently exploring multi-column layouts, and we hope to offer that option soon. While they are building that solution, you might like to know that there is a trick you can try to "fake" a two column over one column layout.

Check out this screenshot to see how it looks:



Now for the how-to: To create a campaign like this, first select a one column layout. In the example above, the layout begins with a text box. Below that, we dragged in a multi-image content block. Once that block was in the layout, we clicked options, then settings, made the image count two, and enabled captions. As you can see, we used the caption boxes to add our text, and uploaded simple graphics to the image placeholders above the captions. It looks like a two column layout, with a single column above and below. But actually, it's a one column layout all the way through. Pretty neat, huh?

I hope this helps you think through some possible solutions to get by until we release a multi-column option. If you have any questions or would like to show me an example of the layout you're looking for, just let me know and I'll try to come up with a workaround.

Dig this workaround but will be really stoked to see a true multi-column drag-and-drop editor added to the existing drag-and-drop options.

How do I extend a text box over multiple columns while still maintaing the columns below? I want to line up the picture of the louse (gross, sorry!) With the image that has the red bar at the top.

If you use the explanation above by Cassie, you can accomplish what I think you're asking, but the columns will be equal width.

Otherwise, you can use the table tool to create almost any sort of layout to present that gorgeous louse any way you want:
