Community Coach Insights: Using Video in Marketing Emails

Change content alignment on mobile or small screens

I'd love to be able to change the alignment of content when it gets onto a small screen.

 

In the current-gen editor, when I left-align content for desktop, it gets centered when shrunk down to a small screen. But when I right-align content for desktop, it stays right-aligned when the width is shrunk down to a mobile phone/small screen -- I'd love to be able to set behaviors for content at different page widths.

 

Thanks,

Sam

Hey @SamF32, thanks for sharing this feedback! I did some tests with my iPhone using the mail app and when I received my campaign, the text remains left aligned and didn't actually center itself. Could you tell me which device you are using to test the mobile design of the campaign?

Hi Chris -

 

I'm using the Outlook app for iOS, but the behavior is visible in your own preview tool within the editor -- see the attached screenshots to get a better picture of my request.

 

When previewing in the CC editor, the desktop version of our footer looks like this:

Logos stacked, left-justified, address right justified. When viewing the mobile preview, though, things get weird:

Logos are still properly stacked, and now they're centered -- this I don't mind at all. But the text *doesn't* center, it stays right-justified. This behavior carries over to the Outlook iOS app, too:

Any thoughts? Ideally I'd like to be able to set the alignment for content on large screens and small/mobile screens independently
