Ability to insert an indent for paragraphs

I'm incapable of indenting the first line of a paragraph. This simple aspect of writing should be a no-brainer possibility for account users. Especially when so much of marketing is not only content, but how the content is presented. Capability to indent and format paragraphs properly is a necessity. I'm shocked this hasn't been addressed/fixed, it's such a simple formatting requirement.

I am new to Constant Contact but find it beyond frustrating that when creating a newsletter or any document actually there is no "tab" option. I don't understand why it would be THAT difficult to give a tab option. It really seems minor in comparison and easy to do. Please consider adding this....it's beyond frustrating!!!!!!!!

Where did anchors go?  I need to link from table of content items to the items themselves!!!  Why did you break what wasn't broken?

If, by "Tab", you mean a line indent, then I agree with this and actually posted the same request just yesterday.

@elizabeth.orourke Thank you for the feedback. I understand this is an important feature to you and others and I have passed along your comments to our product team.

I totally agree with Mikhaila B. Without the ability to indent paragraphs, Constant Contact is nearly worthless for our purposes. PLEASE FIX THIS QUICK!

How is it that a platform like Constant Contact no longer has a simple indent feature? I am blown away that since I recently moved to your new editor, I can't create a simple indent in an email. Additionally, I tried to use the space function, in lieu of an indent and I am limited in my ability to make the spacer as small as I want it to be. Come on! Please bring back the indent quickly and give us the ability to make spacers the size we prefer!!! This is a big deal!!!!!!!!!!

Indent or tab for paragraphs would be very helpful

We would like to be able to indent text. Indentation would help with the organization of text, which was previously available in the legacy version. 

 

Please consider our suggestion. Thank you!

The feature to indent text is no longer available. Can it be reinstated? I found this feature extremely useful before it was deleted from textformatting options.

I have been inquiring about tabs since I starting using CC.  I'm beside myself why it has taken this long to get this working.  I'm not the only one that has been complaining.  What is going on.  It simply CANNOT be that difficult.  It is needed.  I'm so sick of asking for that I can't even tell you.  It makes me angry every time I need that feature and it isn't there, which is quite often.  I sometimes feel like stop using the program all together because if your staff can't do something as SIMPLE as create a tab for it's users, then really??????????  It is just plain stupid if you ask me.  I really and truly don't get what the problem is.  Can someone explain it to me without the same........"we are working on it"  NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Get it done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is painfully obvious that you are not going to restore the ability to edit the html in the 3rd generation editor, so can't you provide an option for a blockquote or a workaround?

 

Doing newsletters, we often run into the need to indent a paragraph as the "blockquote" feature does in html but there seems to be no way to do this. I tried using the 3-column format and making the center column large and deleting text from the left and right column, but it won't allow me to make the center column as wide as it needs to be for this purpose. Is there another workaround you can provide?

 

Thanks.

Or maybe someone in the community has figured a way around this problem???

At this point I would accept being able to use 4 spaces in a row, but the editor deletes redundant spaces.
Just please do something - anything - about this. This is unacceptable.

We just switched to 3GE to use a new CC designed template - but we have to be able to indent. Is there an update on when the indent functionality will be restored?
