@Nick_S. 

Has there been any progress with this? Need to have more than two images/buttons side by side.

Re: Side by side buttons

This seems outrageous to eliminate the tables feature, but to not allow more than two images side by side. You end up with clunky, non-professional looking emails. Please fix! I want to create an email template that is NON-HTML provide my colleagues the ability to edit, but I need it to have buttons across the top that link up with our website. When will there be a solution for this?

Re: Side by side buttons

Hello @NCSML. I understand why you would like to have muliple buttons in your email. You can create links to different parts of your website that can create a toolbar effect in your emails like in the screenshot below:

While we don't have any information on if or when this feature could be put into your accounts, I will submit your feedback over to our Product team.

Re: Side by side buttons

I don't seem to be able to do this. In fact, my screen doesn't look like the video. There isn't a build section

Hi @KeithS660,

 

We're sorry for any confusion with this and glad you reached out. I checked your account and it uses the Second Generation Editor with the table option. In order to create two side-by-side buttons you'll first need to have an image for each button. Then you can add a clickable link to each button image.

To create a table for the button images, just click the table icon in the block's toolbar and place your cursor over the grid to highlight the number of columns and rows you need. So in order to create two side-by-side buttons you'll select one row and two columns:

From here you'll insert your images into the cells and then make them clickable links

Re: Side by side buttons

When will all accounts have the third generation editor? I do not have the Build options shown in the video either, and using a table does not provide the same clean, professional look of the button option.

I would be happy to look at your account and see if you are eligible to be upgraded earlier.
