We are locking this post and ask for additional comments and votes be left on the open idea for the ability to indent text. Our Product team regularly reviews our Feedback boards more than our Get Help area. Though we do not have a time estimate if a feature like this will be available in the product, any updates will be posted there, not on this post. Voting and commenting on the linked post above helps to influence future product decisions and allows you to be notified of replies from our teams.
Thank you for your feedback! I will definitely submit this over to our engineers for review. Have a wonderful Wednesday!
This is a very unfortunate oversight on behalf of Constant Contact. I need to use a blockquote feature in ALMOST EVERY EMAIL I SEND OUT. Not having this ability is very crippling and there has been nothing done about it to my knowledge.
Right now I am using the tip of using a "-" and making it the same color as the background. That's the only thing I can do now until they make it available.
Hi @ShanaJ97 ,
I have gone ahead and flagged this on your account as a feature request. I will have our engineering team follow up with you for any updates we have on this request.
To everyone on this thread who needs this function, please VOTE on the initial post to get them to add this feature! (Only 2 people voted but there are 20 replies on this post)
Also, there is another workaround you can use until the ability to indent is added:
That is, to create your text that you want to indent in its own text block, then add a spacer image to the left of that text block.
It's certainly not ideal for a few reasons, but the main one being that the spacer image will not allow you to minimize it as much as you would like, so it's a very deep indent, but it does the job in the interim.
Thank you for sharing that workaround! I'm glad to hear that you've found a solution that works for you however I do want to mention that if you do this, those blocks will stack on a mobile device so your readers will see a large gap in between those bullet points when reading your emails on their phone.
Please let us know if you have any additional questions about that!
I use a great workaround. Just add text before the lines you would like to indent and make the text the background color. Our emails are in Georgia 14. I use "<ind>" to give a nice indentation. The "<ind>" is only visible if someone copies/pastes the entire text, but then it looks like they are copying code instead of seeing "......" or "blahblah" or something unseemly.
Not only line indent, but trying to number then indent to letters, then return to continuation of numbers is IMPOSSIBLE. Why on earth would you not have considered any of this? I have no recourse but to re-work my entire text to somehow eliminate the use of numbers and letters, which defeats the purpose of the points I was making. Tried to copy and paste a word/jpg/every format I could think of and the quality is too poor to post. What should have been an easy "letter" to send is turning out to be a nightmare. So sorry Constant Contact is so poorly editable.
I miss the days of when you could use code to adjust your layout. Even the amount of padding in boxes, etc. I guess I am used to controlling JUST how things work and having them look exactly how I like. Is there any way to get some of that control back? It seems that with every update, we are limited to the layout more and more.
Are you KIDDING me. It's been TWO YEARS since the original request. Can we please get a fix for this? I can't believe that after this long, such a critical functionality has not been added. Seeing this request go unaddressed for this long really says something about how much CC cares about responding to its clients' needs.
I guarantee for every person who posts a request here, there's another 10 who have no idea this thread exists, like I didn't for the last year.
