I have a minor convenience-related suggestion for Color Selection while working within the Constant Contact email editor. Currently, the background colors for email elements are generated based on those selected under the "Design" tab, yet I have frequently encountered instances in which elements built into the template adopt different background colors than when similar elements are added by the user.
The screenshot below was taken of an email being developed based on the "Boxing Day Promotion" template. This template contained Feature Articles with a navy blue background separated by Dividers with navy blue backgrounds and white dividing lines. However, when adding additional Dividers, these follow the Inner Background color preference of a white background with a gray line.
In order to change the background color to match the other dividers, I currently have to hover over a navy blue element, click the Paint Bucket tool, then click "More Colors", copy the color's Hex Code, and then go back to the white element, click the Paint Bucket tool, then click "More Colors" and then paste the copied Hex Code into the color selection box. (the color then appears in my Recent Colors for easier use)
This isn't too many steps, but adds extra development time to my emails, as I change themes frequently to keep them fresh.
Ideally, this time could be lessened either through providing an 'Eyedropper' tool for color selection based on other elements or perhaps providing a Color Swatch Family related to the default colors used by a template that appears in the color selection tool.
Would options such as this be possible to implement within the current generation of the email editor?
