How to align a block to the left of the page?

Hello there from the Netherlands!

 

E-mails sent from CC are always aligned in the center. Why? Sometimes I want my CC mail to look like a regular mail, so with all the text aligned to the left, and without all the empty space around it on both sides.

 

Is there a good way to do this, a format to choose from, that is also mobile friendly?

 

Many thanks,

 

Jair Schalkwijk

Hi @JairS9,

 

Hello there from Colorado and thanks for a great question! You can change the alignment of your text by first highlighting it and then clicking the Align left button in the toolbar:

In addition, you can select a mobile-responsive template by looking for the mobile icon next to the name of the template:

Hi @JairS9,

 

I just wanted to add to your point about the template looking like "regular mail." Currently, we do not have any templates available that mimic the look of standard e-mail. The closest template would be "Basic Letter," but it still has the outer background on either side. I will be happy to pass this along as feedback to our product teams. 

 

Thank you for taking the time to reach out in the Community!

Do you have any ideas of when this is going to be implemented?

Hello @OsamuW. At this time, we do not have any templates look like a "regular email." I would suggest using the Basic Letter template which most resembles this layout. You find this template by clicking Create under the Campaigns tab and selecting "Basic Letter." I will be happy to pass along your feedback to our product teams about having this type of template available in your account.

Hi,

 

There's clearly a need for an email to be sent out as regular email. Looking at the thread, it's been a few years that people are requesting this. Please add another template to make it happen. Would really appreciate it.

 

Thanks,

Rubal
