We really appreciate your specific feedback on how this feature can be improved. It's great insight for our developers to review as they map out future updates for the product. I have tracked it in your account for them to see. I also encourage you to check out our Feedback area of the Community where you can post any additional feedback you have and chime in with other customers sharing their ideas.
Yes. I would agree it is oversimplified for someone who has a design background... which many marketers do.
Designers prefer to have control over design... 13 point may fit better... and extra invisible character at 5 point may be just what's needed.
Thanks for reaching out about our Third Generation Editor! We appreciate your feedback about designers having a bit more control over the design and especially the font sizing. I have passed along your feedback to our developers. Please let us know if you encounter any other features that you'd like to see in our new editor!
I find it very odd that I can reply to a message in your community with all the options I want to see in the Constant Contact Editor, but don't have access to those features where I really need them. The current editor is much to simplified and does not allow me enough customization to appropriately address my customer's branding guidelines. I cannot change styles of certain components without effecting the same type of component throughout the email. I have used Constant Contact on and off for years for different customers, but I am now unable to continue to use it. I am having to go with another product to meet my needs. Very unfortunate, but with the minimalist version of the editor and without the ability to access the HTML, I am left with no other option. I understand the benefits of the new editor, but it would be much better if you could turn on the additional features of the old editors in your account or something.
We're sorry to see you go but we do value your comments and feedback about accessing the HTML in our new editor. As such we understand your concerns about branding requirements and changing styles, and have submitted your concerns to the appropriate team.
I also need access to HTML. Primarily, I use it to copy/paste blocks from one email campaign into another campaign. Our monthly newsletters often have a few roll-over items each month, rather than redo each section, I would previously open the HTML for the block, copy, then open the new email, add a blank block, open that HTML and paste. Waaay faster than having to redo the whole block.
As it is, I don't think there is any way for me to do copy blocks between campaigns.
Welcome back to the Community! Thank you for the feedback! We apologize that editing HTML is not offered in the 3ge editor and I will be submitting your feedback to our developers.
Please let us know if we can assist you in any other way.
Thank you for your feedback and I will track that on your account. Another solution instead of copying information over to the new campaign is to make a copy of the campaign and just replace the content you need to change. This can help save some time.
I do apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and thank you again for the feedback you have provided!
I'm having an issue with buttons & dividers option being the same color. I placed an RSVP box and want the buttons to be different colors than the border/divider around the email. This would be an easy fix with access to the HTML editor but that doesn't seem to be an option presently. Is there any other workaround for this? Thanks
