Text Wrapping

Text Wrapping

The new editor should allow the user to wrap text around a photo anywhere in a copy block.  That's a fairly common and very useful layout feature.  Don't know why you don't offer it.

In the new editor, you cannot insert images inline with selected text or adjust your image placement - it only defaults to top of text box and only gives you the ability to align (left, center, right) - not in different areas of the text box which is very frustating.

Hi @PlugFest,


Thank you for your reply. You are correct that the image block can only be inserted within the top of text block. I do apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused in not having this ability. If you wanted to have the image inserted with the appearance of being between the text block, you will need to copy and paste the text into a new text block and insert an image block above it. This way, it will give the impression that the image is between the text and you can align to the left,center, or right. Once again, I do apologize for the inconvenience this may cause. I hope this workaround helps. Let us know if you need assistance with anything else.

I agree with @plugfest.  This was a function in the previous version that made it easy to create a nice flow.


Another agreement with @plugfest here.

I agree that you should be able to put it anywhere in the text block, or at least aligned with the start of any paragraph. However there is a better workaround than the one suggested by @Lucas_D.

What I have been doing is to make a new text block and cut and paste the part of the text where you want the image to appear into the new block. That way you can insert the image at the top of the text block and have the text run around it there.


Inserting the image in a separate image block doesn't really help anything that I can see. Maybe I'm missing something though.

Unbelievably awkward image placing capability of Third Gen editor.   Unlike ANY other editing editing tool I've ever used (including Constant Contact's prior generation editing tool!!!!).  What's the reason for this lack of ability to insert an image ANYWHERE within a text block?  There must be some reason for this. Staggeringly bad design.  Plus, we can't revert to the prior gen editor. 


This is incredibly annoying and frustrating. Wish I hadn't bothered trying to switch to third generation.
