I just had this problem as well! I found that you could change the divider and button's color manually by clicking on them.
Thanks for the tip - yes that works for the individual dividers except the template I'm using has an outer border around the body email that also changes when I specify the button colors :/ Why these two elements cannot be separated is a mystery... unless you know some workaround for the border issue?
Thanks for interacting in our Community and I'm sorry you are experiencing some trouble with the colors and buttons. The RSVP blocks are made to replicate the global fonts and colors used in that specific template... So if the borders/buttons are set to be a dark blue the RSVP block will mirror that. @MandyS4 was correct that outside the RSVP block you can individually change the divider and button colors! I will get this feedback over to our developers in hopes we can make those changes in the RSVP block area. Let us know if we can assist in any way!
We, too, have been shocked by all of the functionality that has been removed from Constant Contact. As we are just trying out the third generation editor, we can't believe that there is no longer access to the html. We were previously making use of anchors and now that is no longer available, and we cannot access the html to do it manually. I understand the desire to simplify and perhaps there were previous complaints from users about complexity, but having the freedom to make customizations is important. Plus, it is also unbelievable that saving/editing templates is not available. We can't fathom why that important functionality was removed.
I got a little insight into this when talking with a support person about another issue--and I took the opportunity to complain. It seems that at least part of the story is making the 3rd Gen editor mobile compliant, and a concern that if they let us access the html would could go afoul of some of the mobile best practices, thereby rendering a particular email non mobile compatible. Not a very good reason, imho, but there you have it.
Thank you both for your input here. We value your feedback and I have gone ahead and added you both to the list of people to be updated if this becomes a feature for the Third Generation Editor. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.
Please add me to the list of people who would like html for creating newsletter campaigns (). I just completed the first 3rd gen update (only about 35+ more individual email formats to go)--and would like the option of adjusting line spacing and font size, etc.
Thank you for reaching out to the Community about your email! I have tracked your feedback for these feature requests in your account. I apologize any inconvenience that may be caused by not having these features. In the meantime, as a work around for line spacing we suggest updating the global font size under the design tab.
This global font will cause all blocks to have the same line-height. It also goes into effect for the size of bullet points and the spacing around each text block. Changing this font size to be smaller will give you smaller line spacing, and larger for larger line spacing. You can then resize the font size in each specific block. I hope this workaround helps! We also have this helpful article for Moving from the Second-Generation Editor to the Third-Generation Editor.
You're welcome and we very much appreciate your feedback!
