Arghh not dig'n it. How can I view a new account in the old editor? The new editor is like the new social social sharing tool... a wicked drag.
@LisaB834 Thank you for the valuable feedback. These are some good ideas and I will pass your comments on to the editor team.
Agreed, I'm new and already I hate it.
It's like giving a 30-year-old IT designer crayons and raggedy paper and saying "Here, make something elegant."
I suspect the bolded statement (they want to sell custom designs) has sussed out the real issue. We're going to have to look at competitors, also, no way am I going to deal with this insanity.
I also need to edit the html. My brand guidelines use sharp corners, not round, so I need to edit the button style.
I am an avid user of Constant Contact and have had much success with using this, but as my business keeps expanding I need to put in custom html codes for my customers. Yet, I can't do this in the third generation and only the second. I try to use the third when I can and the only reason I have to use the old one is because of the custom html ability. I know the compatibility issues and how it isn't mobile friendly but I would like to know is this being worked on at all? I find this extremely frustrating and would love to see. this implemented ASAP. Is there any work in progress for this?
Hey @BBrinkley007, thanks for your feedback! This is definitely something we've been working on and we've added a lot of new blocks that accomplished a lot of what users have been requesting such as multiple columns to replicate tables. Allowing users to add custom code into this editor is definitely something we're trying to look at carefully as we want to make sure it's a good experience for you as well as your recipients. If we were to add a custom code block, what type of things would you be adding to it? Are you looking to adjust padding, add custom buttons, or something similar?
@Chris__D We need the capability to simply be able to remove html that gets copied and pasted into our text. We often have pieces we copy and paste from different sources or from a previous CC newsletter, and need to remove the html that comes over with it. Hitting the clear formatting button often doesn't work fully. The only way to remove it is to actually go into the code and remove the extra "junk" html. Simple as that.
Totally agree with Sherry and many of the other comments. Not having the ability to edit html severely limits correction and customization options. One of the features of the old version was it didn't have to be one-size-fits-all.
