VERY POOR editing capability for bulleted/numbered lists

VERY POOR editing capability for bulleted/numbered lists

Trying to add a bulleted or numbered list I run into multiple problems. First, as users, WE should be able to control the spacing, not you, so there is/isn't a space between a heading and the list points or individual list points. Second, I cannot indent a list without it giving me a blank first item that is not indented.

Agreed.

 

And even if the spacing is going to be built in (between bulleted items) a few choices could be provided. That doesn't solve the whole thing but it would help.

Yep, we finally get line spacing and it doesn't work for bulleted text.

 

And, I still can't figure out how to box a column or change the background color of an entire text box without using a template which would necessitate having to recreate our newsletter branding. I'm not a graphic artist or a tech wizard and I'm tired of having to create a text image in InDesign/Illustrator and bring it in as an image which doesn't translate well in the final product. I'm, again, tempted to go back to Mail Chimp.

Hey @WVPresbytery, thanks for sharing this feedback! We definitely understand the importance of being able to edit the spacing in bulleted lists. Some email clients like Outlook don't actually support the formatting of spacing and indentions on lists so if we were to add this type of feature, Outlook would likely not respect those formats. Is that something that would be a deal breaker in using formatting tools like that? I've opened this idea to hopefully get some more insight on this issue as well as let others vote and kudo the idea.

I got a comment in my email last week from a Constant Contact employee, but it doesn't show up here. He said, in part, "Some email clients like Outlook don't actually support the formatting of spacing and indentions on lists so if we were to add this type of feature, Outlook would likely not respect those formats." That's not a deal breaker for my company, as I'm not sure how many of our readers actually use Outlook, but if your organization's do, it's something to consider.

yeah, that's a point. But if Constant Contact eliminates every piece of code that Outlook doesn't "accept," there will be precious little left of an email design.
