I would like to be able to adjust the margins before downloading my ecampaign as a pdf.
We still cannot print a copy of a campaign in PDF format that looks decent. Why hasn't this feature been improved?
I am also struggling with printing copies of the newsletter. Help! My pastor is old fashion and wants to shift to using publisher, and I want to continue to use Constant Contact. But I need to print a quality document to mail to the members of the congregation who don't have emails.
I would like to see a "page break" icon along with the spacer or divider icons in the building section. It would work similar in that you drag it into the letter but when viewed by a recipient on a computer or mobile device, they would see nothing different but if they printed the newsletter, the pages would print starting a new page each time it came to the previously inserted page break. We like to think our newsletters are informative to our customers and that they often may want to print them and it would be nice if the page breaks were not so "random" based on the amount of text on a page. Obviously you could not force more text and photos on a page than would fit but it would allow me to create a letter that, when printed, would keep paragraphs together and would be easier to read when printed. Somewhat like a book that starts a new chapter on the next page and not in the middle of one. I think it would just look cleaner. Obviously if the document is never printed by an end reader, they would not even be aware that the page breaks exist but to someone that prints it, I think it would be much more enjoyable to them.
Thanks for your consideration of this idea.
Thank you for suggesting this! We are going to have to start printing some of our e-mail campaigns and this feature would be very helpful!
Hi Constant Contact Help Center and Community,
I know this question has been asked several times over the course of several years, but I have yet to see it be resolved with a solution or fix. I am hopeful that you have a fantastic tech team that is working on this task.
I am in a position to design campaigns that will be emailed out to members but I also need to print off downloaded PDFs. The problem is that when the PDF is downloaded, there are no clean page breaks. An article, paragraph, or list can be chopped at the bottom of one page and continue on the next. For many in your community, a more professional look is wanted with a topic or story being started and finished on a single page.
The only way I can achieve a clean printed copy, with each topic finishing on the page in which it begins, is to make a copy of a campaign, edit the content - changing text size, adding/deleting images, or moving about topics, etc., all so they fit on one page. Most of my campaigns are around six pages long. This process can take up to 10 copy and edits per campaign - a very tedious and time consuming process.
If there were a way to visualize where the page breaks would fall during the creation of the campaign, you would make this Constant Contact consumer, and a lot others, very happy.
Again, I am hoping you are tackling this process.
Thank you very much,
