Thank you for reaching out to us! That is a great question. So it does depend on when you are attempting to use a non-breaking space within an email. If it's in the middle of a text block to separate paragraphs, I would recommend making the paragraphs separate blocks since the spacing is built into them. Or in some instances, you might just need to us the spacer block that is located within the Build toolbar on the left. If you provide an example I'd be happy to recommend what would work instead. Thank you for your time!
I need a certain amount of space in between words/dashes within a text block to make it look nice graphically. Is there a way to use within the 3rd gen editor? It would be really nice if we had the ability to see and edit the HTML code in general. Thanks!
There isn't currently a way of adding non-breaking spaces using our interface. It is possible to copy and paste them from a platform that does generate them, and they should function as expected in most instances. This is however highly recommended against. The spacing created will often cause unexpected display issues when viewing on significantly smaller or larger screens, and especially on mobile devices. We do have a custom code editor to allow you to bypass our normal templates, and work solely in the html. When creating a campaign, instead of choosing one of our standard templates, you should see 'custom code' in the upper right corner.
This is really out of touch on Constant Contact’s part. I used to add non-breaking spaces using the code editor for many reasons. None of them were for adding space between paragraphs. Among the legitimate and necessary reasons: preventing dates, addresses, and headings from breaking awkwardly. Please make it possible to insert this code. Controlling line breaks is very often the difference between a lazy and a professional message.
Thank you for your feedback! We completely understand the importance and will definitely submit this over to our engineers for review. You can also take a look at our Custom Code editor so you can have more control using your own HTML code if you would like. Thank you!
This is not helpful at all. I don't want to spend the time or take the risk of designing a custom-coded template. Suggesting I do this just so I can insert non-breaking spaces is not reasonable.
