Arghh not dig'n it. How can I view a new account in the old editor? The new editor is like the new social social sharing tool... a wicked drag.
Have been working to make the responsive template work for us. But if it's going to be useful in our environment, there are a number of "must-haves."
If any of these "must-haves" are already in the beta, please let me know. I've been looking, but may have missed something. Thanks.
Yes, the ability to edit the HTML/css is a much needed feature.
Please make the option to use custom html/css templates in responsive email. There are many responsive email designs/templates that we could be using instead of your visual editor.
We need more control.
Thanks for the feedback! The ability to edit HTML and CSS does not yet exist in the beta editor, nor does an explicit "clear styles" option for text editing or the ability to turn off tracking on links.
The beta editor does automatically clear (problematic) styles when pasting in content. If you encounter any issues with pasting in content, please respond with more information about the issues you're having. It would be greatly appreciated.
As for styling links, you should be able to highlight and style links in the same way that you would regular text (i.e. select a new font, change the font color, etc).
what happened to editing the html?? It took me 5x as long to create an email and it looks crappy. No flecibility, no background colors , the social boxes dont format right in outlook. The client is unhappy and wants to move. I will not use a mobile template again.
We're considering different options to help with finer-tuned editing. Code view is a great way to provide flexibility, and is the leading feature in this conversation. Thanks for your vote on the topic!
@PWOWadmin We've made some updates to this edit experience, including image resize capabilities. If you have a moment to do so, please try it out again and let us know what you think!
@tritontwo We're also considering updated solutions for code editing/importing to create your own mobile-responsive emails via html and css.
I'm echoing support for HTML access in these templates.
Yes, of course it's problematic -- some people will mess themselves up, thwart the structure of the responsive code, then complain to you that it's not working.
Perhaps two levels of access are needed -- a more WYSIWYG default, and an Advanced Editor link for those with coding skills and the need for finer-grained control?
