I'm trying to access the HTML code view so I can add a box around a block of text. This appears to be the only way I can do that. Can you tell me how I can either access the HTML code or put a box/rule like around a block of text?
Thank you for reaching out to the community!
At this time our Third Generation Editor does not support editing HTML code. We are taking all feedback on this and I will be happy to submit a request for this feature on your behalf. As an alternative, choosing a different template that already contains a block with a border may be a good solution for you. We also offer custom template designs if you are looking for something more specific.
Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.
When can we hope to have an answer to whether the html editing functionality will be reinstated? Mary
Thank you for your response.
At this time we are only collecting feedback about this. We have not confirmed that this will be added to the Third Generation Editor as it was designed to operate without this feature. However, in the meantime, if you would like to use your own custom code you are welcome to create a custom code email by clicking on Create from your Campaigns page and choosing Custom Code from the upper right corner.
We are here to help if you need anything else!
Hello @ErieBar. At this time, our third-generation editor does not have the ability to access HTML. I understand why you would want this access However, we are collecting feedback from our customers who would want this access so we can possibly implement easier editing options into the editor itself without having to resort to accessing the HTML of an email. I saw that you wanted the access for text editing. What types of editing would you be doing, either with the text or the layout of the email? Let us know and I would be happy to submit this feedback over to the appropriate teams!
In the most simple terms, sometimes a 13 point font fits better on a line than 14. Sometimes less space between lines looks cleaner. It's really just a matter of what I'm feeling and seeing for a particular campaign.
My first thought when working with the third generation editor was that it was oversimplified. Yes, I can fire out messages at lightning speed, but not having access to the code might alienate a particular group of CC users.
I'm very happy to pass along that feedback, thank you very much! We really do take this sort of feedback seriously, as we want to provide the best user experience we can. Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help.
Hi! I too would REALLY like to be able to edit the HTML with in the third-generation editor! It's something that absolutely makes my job easier. For instance, if a client gives me content to make an email out of and I do some editing for inline styles in Dreamweaver, I want to paste the code into a new campaign. Also, if I want to stylize bulleted lists (i.e., their indents), I would like to add inline styles. Also, please add functionality to be able to designate headers (font, size, color) in the campaign designer.
Thank you so much for the feedback!
I want to let you know that you can build your own email using HTML or XHTML with our custom code editor. Click Here for some more information.
