Having Trouble Aligning Columns That Include Custom Fields

Having Trouble Aligning Columns That Include Custom Fields

I am trying to do a simple mailing that includes two columns.  The left column has labels line Name, E-mail, Cell Phone, City, State, etc. and the right column pulls the appropriate data from the person’s imported data.  My problem is that I can’t get the right column to line up correctly. 


Is there a “right justify” capability or a way to use tabs to line up the right column?


I have chatted online with constant Contact and they say the difficulty is that I am using custom fields.


Aligning columns or being able to tab over to always have a field in the same location on each line seems like a very basic capability.  Am I missing something here?  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!


Best regards,

Do you have access to code in HTML?  You can place HTML formatted code into empty blocks.


I suggest you create a 600 wide 2 column table and assign the <td>with whatever justification you want.  Then copy the HTML from your editor (just the <table> code) and place it in a gutted full width block. Then try inserting your Custom Fields in each column.
