Spacing and Margins


Spacing and Margins

I am trying to get a newsletter done on a template that I have used for years. Now when I look at the preview before sending, the colored borders are much wider and the newsletter content/formatting is much narrower in the center of the template. What is causing this? How do I fix it or do I just wait until Monday to speak to someone live and have them view it for me?


Hello @Marijane,


Thank you for reaching out to the Community! The best way to fix an issue like this is to use our new and improved templates. It sounds like you are using our older version of editing and creating multiple copies of those templates will cause formatting issues. Our new templates are called the Third Generation and we do not have formatting issues in the new editor like this anymore. Thank you!

Rather frustrating to redo it all when it's a margin tweak, if you have a complex email, isn't it?

I'm running into similar problem, the margins in the body are too wide, and I'd like to move the sides in...

so it's not overwhelmingly wide.  There has to be a better way than start from the beginning.


I also find this frustrating    every other app lets you adjust your own margins.  CC should be able to fix this.  I don't want their template.  Happy with my own.
