Tab

I would like to know why there is no "tab" function available when putting text in an email or on a document such as a newsletter.  This is very frustrating and shouldn't be that difficult to add.  Can't something be done about this?  I can't believe I'm the only one that has ever addressed this topic.

Re: Tab

Hello @DianeB4507,

 

Thank you for reaching out to the community!

 

I apologize for any inconvenience that this has caused you. At this time the Constant Contact editor does not support the option to use the tab key. We are currently taking feedback on this and I am happy to submit your request to the appropriate teams.

 

In the meantime, you may be able to get some text to copy and paste an indent from another program. This would be a workaround and may not work exactly how you need it to but it might be worth a try.

 

Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.

Re: Tab

I completely agree.  This is beyond annoying and makes my newsletters very difficult to read.

 

It has been years since they have been promising this feature.  How hard can it be if a teenager can hack just about anything
