Hoping for three capabilities with email blasts, etc.

1) I've been wishing for a long time that when we design an email blast we have an option to change the spacing between lines of text. You did add that capability, BUT it changes the spacing between the lines for EVERY line in the email blast, not just where I WANT it to change. Also, when we have a blank text space, there is no way to make that space smaller or bigger. Example: In Microsoft Office, a blank line has a hidden paragraph mark, we can select that paragraph mark and format it the same as we would text. 2) I would love to have the option for VERTICAL dividers and spacers. Or at least the vertical one. 3) I see no option to add a border around the email blast. Your templates have borders, but if we don't use your template we get NO border unless we choose an OUTER BACKGROUND which I don't use often. Thank you for listening.

Hello @Squantum. Thank you for the feedback. I wanted to address all of your points separately:


  1. When setting line spacing, it will affect all text within the block. Right now, if you wanted to have different settings, you can break the text up into different blocks. We've heard similar requests from other customers about allowing multiple line spacing settings within a block.
  2. We have a pre-built vertical divider layout block that may be what you are looking for. This is ideal for dividing two blocks of text and you can drag the divider to adjust the width of each column. 
  3. This is also a great idea. At this time, some templates have a border by default but some do not so you're not able to add a border to an email. Would you expect to be able to turn a border on or off under the Design tab while creating an email?
