how to add a table in new editor

YIKES.  I can't add a table and see no way to do it.  This is a major problem.  We use tables a lot in our emails.  Can this be added???

Hello @Cistercian ,

 

At this time table functionality isn't possible in a mobile-compatible email. While our engineers are looking into ways that this might work, they're suggesting either linking a document with a table (e.g. Word, Excel, Google Docs, etc.), or using a screenshot of your table designed in another program. You can also use one of the multi-column layout blocks to accomplish similar setups, but please be aware that they will still reformat left-right to top-down for mobile device's views.

This is too unwieldy and difficult to do.  The table that used to be in the old editor worked well.  PLEASE add tables back!

Also I cannot put captions under photos.  Is this a possibility?  Very useful and needed.

It's not possible to have more than one photo per text box/paragraph, and I have to place the photo where the editor dictates.  Any possibility for more flexibility with photos??

Hello @Cistercian ,

 

It sounds like you're adding images to existing text blocks, but adding them using image blocks instead allows for more formatting options that may fit your needs better. Once you've added an image block, you can check out this guide on how to add image captions!

The new editor is horrible. And it won't matter what problems people are having, CC won't investigate/try to fix it.

I beg to differ.  I have had very good advice and help from the CC help desk in the past, and I think they are responsive and will try to make requested changes.  I doubt that I'm the only user requesting some of these upgrades.
