Background Colors

Background Colors

I would like to be able to do a text box. I would like to be able to choose background colors for text boxes. I would like my work to get saved automatically every 5 minutes or so. I switched from to Constant Contact recently and am disappointed that these are not offered. I could do all of this in.

I want the ability to edit some button properties in my template. Specifically, the button’s background color and the placement of the button in the template (left/center/right aligned).

I want more control over the colors in my template to better reflect my brand. Specifically, background color.

We recently released a global color capability in the editor.  All new templates support the global color mapping.  Pleaes give it a try!

Changing the overall color scheme of the email is not an option, and I'm having difficulty editing text colors.

Thanks for the feedback! Have you tried using the "Colors" tab on the right side of the screen?

 

I think this may solve your issue. You can drag and drop any color chip from this tab onto your email template to adjust colors:

I've been using CC since 2007 and this "editor" leaves a lot to be desired. I just accidentally deleted a block of text, and there's no way to undo. I don't see a way of globally setting colors and fonts. Really, it's a mess. Do not put this version into production - you'll have plenty of people leaving CC for a competitor!!

Thanks for the feedback. We're actively working to improve the experience, including implementing undo/redo buttons and better color editing. Over time, we hope that you'll find the editing experience to be significantly improved.

I cannot fill a block with one color.

Certain blocks in the beta editor are linked together so that when you drag a color from the "Color" palette, it'll be applied to multiple items at once. This was done in the spirit of easy/quick/guided editing. You're always able to change text color, but in some cases you may not be able to change the block's background color independent of other items on the page.

I'm testing out the new Beta editor & it seems great. However, after I save the email, the top header that allows me to exit the email editing disappears, which makes it very unfriendly to navigate back to the full list of emails. Also when I update the color of my heading to the colors of my brand & save the email, exit and them come back, the heading color reverts back to default, which is not something I want. If you could fix that, it would be great. It would be even better if there was a global setting for setting link & heading colors and they would automatically apply, so I don't have to do it for each one.

Thanks for the feedback -- the specifics are very much appreciated! We're currently working on the "disappearing navigation" issue. As for the color issue: We'll do some investigation around this and prioritize a fix. I'll update this post when we have a fix ready for release.

This is in reference to the mobile beta templates.

On the responsive beta templates, I can apply background color to the entire doc, but can't figure out how to do that to individual blocks. Is that possible?

Used the Mobile Template for the first time. I like it, but would like to see: - The ability to size photos in the blocks. - The ability to use background colors in a block so that white type can be used. - The ability to add copy into the same block where a photo appears. Maybe these features are available and I missed them? Thanks!
i used one of the templates and would like to be able to change the background image and make the header image larger.
