document links

0 Votes

Maybe it's just me, but in the 3rd generation editor, adding links to a document is far too complicated. In earlier versions, when I wanted to insert a link, it gave me the option of going to my library and finding the document. Now I must go to the library, copy the url, go back to my campaign and paste the link. This is painful when each newsletter I send out has 6 to 7 links! Bring back the old method!

Hi @KimS2328

Can you try this with your next email?


1. Highlight text or just Click on the block toolbar to insert a link

2. From the drop down at the top of the overlay choose "Document Link"

3. Pick the document from the options below.


Just a note: The document would still need to be in the Library but this won't require that you copy and paste the URL!

Hi Hannah,

My insert link popup looks nothing like yours. Unfortunately, I can't paste the snippet that I made of the screen I see. My only options to insert a link are: website, email, or anchor. No document.

I'd be grateful if you can help me figure out what I'm doing wrong.
