Formatting an Element

Occasional Contributor

Formatting an Element

When I click on certain items in my editor page, the editing box overlaps the text box I am trying to edit, so I cannot edit & click on the box at the same time.  I have attached an illustration.  #1 is the text box I am trying to format, and #2 is the format box.  Also: how do I change the background of this text box to blue, and not just get a blue highlight?Capture.JPG

Re: Formatting an Element

Hi @MindyL77


Thank you for reaching out to the Constant Contact Community. My name is Adrienne and it's my pleasure to assist you today.


Great questions. In order to color the background of the entire block, you may follow these instructions. I'm sorry that you are experiencing the editing issue with the formatting menu. That will always sit at the top of the block, usually if you scroll away from it it will allow you to edit the entirety of the block. Sometimes that can be prevented if you have a small screen that you are editing. If you are unable to scroll away from it or it continues to happen, please send an email social_support(at)constantcontact(dot)com with your username, the issue, and a reference to this post so we may do some further research. 


Thank you for choosing Constant Contact. Have a great day!
