Line Indent??

I love the new third generation editor however i don't see any way to indent a line.  Am I missing something? Can this editing function be added? Tab key does not work either... So that's not an option.

 

Thank you!

Thanks for reaching out to us! As of right now, the ability to indent is not currently available in the editor.  We have a feature request for the ability to indent text open for voting and ask for further voting to be done on that thread and not left as a comment here. Our product teams monitor the Feedback area more than our support area.

This is a HUGE flaw in this editor??!!  I cannot fathom why you would not include that right from the start?  Indents are key for designing the flow of a newsletter in my opinion.  Hope you get this added to the editor SOON otherwise I may be looking elsewhere for other options!

Hey @SSJD,

 

I absolutely understand your concerns. In the meantime I do have a workaround for you. You can simply add an indent by clicking your dash key (-). You can then highlight all of the dashes that you add and make them the same color as the background of your email so that they blend in.

 

I know that this is not ideal but it is something that I would suggest trying while we address that feature request. Please let us know if you have additional questions and have a great rest of your day!

I've been looking for a solution to this for months. This is an AWFUL workaround / hack / solution for this basic issue. Please pass the word to the developers that this simple issue should be a priority to resolve.

Is there going to be a reliable option for this?  And there is a lot that is harder to do with the updates.  

This is ridiculous.

The is a profoundly unwise solution knowing how this is counter to everything else CC is doing to make your emails mobile responsive. I think the problem is that small people with big egos are driving product development at CC. I would drop Constant Contact in a heartbeat (I already have for some clients) if it wasn't for your integration with other services that I use.

Who did you switch to with your clients? I am seriously looking to change, this is ridiculous, especially now that they took away the ability to copy legacy campaigns I am stuck with this less than adequate editor.

Totally agree! I need my indents!

That's exactly the problem I'm having too! Indenting is vital for me (as a non-graphic designer) to break up the space and make reading easier. I vote for an "indent" functionality.

Add my name to the list. Paragraphs shouldn't take a year to implement on an e-mail service.
Using several spaces would count as a fix, but the service deletes redundant spaces.

Came here to find the answer to the same problem.  Please add a way to indent.
