Sorry to hear you aren't liking our editor. Were you giving our new editor a try? I'd love to understand what you didn't like about it so I can voice your feedback. Thanks!
There are a few positives to the new editor, like the drag and drop capability and the mobile preview.
However, we will not be switching over until it includes the ability to add tables (we do a lot of pricing, so tables are ESSENTIAL), and the ability to make minor HTML coding edits. We've had many frustrating days using the new editor, so we're sticking with the "old" one for now. I understand the need for mobile device scalability, but when you offer a block that's supposed to have three images across with text underneath, why do they stack -- on a desktop monitor, not a phone? What's the point of having a block like that to drop in if WYSIWYG is *not* what you get?
Also, while we're making suggestions, on the new editor it would be helpful to choose a default email address to send test messages to. In the old editor (which we use), it's me, so that's really useful. In the new one, it's my boss, so I have to change it EVERY time.
Please keep us posted if these get updated in the new version, and we'll give it another try.
I agree with KarenD67818, there are some positives to the new editor but the things I find lacking in comparison to the legacy:
Basically, CC tried to make the editor more user friendly, but by doing so assumed all their users lacked any sort of development skill and took away a lot of useful aspects of their old editor.
KarenD67818 and NicoleM504 thank you for confirming why I will not be switching to "3GE" as of now. I was not comfortable letting go of the "2GE" editor HTML feature. Now I see that you have mentioned that you can not create columns or tables. Totally WILL NOT switch over now for that reason alone. I am very happy with my current editor.
Thanks for the great post!
