More text wrapping options for images

I don't like that in the new templates, we are unable to add more than 1 picture within a text box.  Would you be able to fix this?

 

Thank you!

 

Best regards,

This is incredibly annoying and frustrating. Wish I hadn't bothered trying to switch to third generation.

Hello @JillBurns,

Thanks for reaching out with this idea!  I'm interested in learning more about your request. How are you looking to add multiple images into the same block? Were you trying to have images side by side or perhaps wrapping around each paragraph?. Is there a reason that you wouldn't want to split up your content into separate text blocks?

Thank you for your reply.  As a matter of convenience, I'd rather not have to break an essay or letter up into different text boxes when I want to include a few pictures at various points in the text.  In the old system, it was easier to manage.  I hope the programmers re-institute this functionality.

Please tell your whizzes there that the change on pic placement is horrible.  it limits the size of the pic: if I have little text and a large pic, it forces a lot of white space on the right. there is no text wrap function. Why would CC do something so stupid when text wrap and placement on right, left, and center worked so well in the past? To give me MORE flexibility with the block! Ha, it obviously only gives me less.  This Made my day terrible. I have a mag to edit after this. I did all the work on both. It is impossible now with a lot of pics and little text. it looks amateurish and I can do better now on Word, for heavens sakes.  Should I leave CC now after all these years?  I hate this and it makes my work look and feel less professional then in the past.

Hello @Vinculum!

Thank you for taking time to supply us with all that feedback! I'm very sorry that you are having a difficult time managing your layout and if you are able to share more that would be helpful.

Would you be able to share a screenshot of what you were trying to accomplish.

I'm about to leave Constant Contact because of this. It is a dramatic decrease in functionality. I want to be able to drag and drop an image into a text block and have it end up where it's supposed to be.

I would like to see the same thing implemented. I was disappointed to find that I had to break up the text into multiple blocks.

alignment - with other images (top, bottom, right, left) and with page (center, top)

resizing text boxes

free movement of images (ex. wanted to put pics side by side (plenty of room) and not possible)
