Bullets and Specified Indentation

Bullets and Specified Indentation

I have a bulleted list, but under some of the bullet points, I want to have indented informaiton that aligns with the text without a bullet. How do I get the wording to align properly? Just last week, I created an email on Constant Contact and with one hit of the delete button only the bullet disappeared leaving the text aligned properly underneath a bulleted point. This week, whenever I click the delete button to remove the bullet, it pulls my text all of the way back to the left margin of the text box ... which is WAY before the bulleted text above. When I hit "tab" it doesn't line up correctly with the text above that is bulleted. What the heck? What happened since last week?

Re: Bullets and Specified Indentation

Hello @GarlaJ. Thank you for reaching out to us. From what I understand, you wanted to insert a line break under a bullet point and have the text line up. We did release a new back-end to our third generation editor very recently which allows us more flexibility to provide additional features in the editor. There was a lot of testing done before it was introduced but there is always the possibility of something being missed.

 

At this time, there isn't a workaround to create this line break as you were able to do before. I have tracked this in your account and you will be notified if there is an update. I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you.

Re: Bullets and Specified Indentation

One way to achive a full paragraph indent in CC editor #3 is to tag the first line as a bullet list. The paragraph is fully indented with a bullet showing at the first line. Quote and italic marks can be added or any other formatting desired. Sure I know, "you can't hide the bullet" but this process sure does draw attention to an inline paragraph in my CC emails.

Re: Bullets and Specified Indentation

It is  very frustrating not to be able to indent paragraphs, which is why I still use the legacy template and not third generation. Indenting paragraphs seems like such a basic function. Can you give us a specific date by which this functionality will be added? Thanks.

Hello @SteveS44,

 

We don't currently have a date set for that feature release. However I have gotten you added a list, to have you emailed once we do have that feature available.
