Line spacing

Line spacing

I am using a template but find I cannot adjust the spacing beween lines.  There is often way too much space between lines of a paragraph-- it looks double-spaced or more.  I have tried changing the font size, but nothing seems to work.  (As a graphic designer, this is important, as it looks amateurish the way it is....)

Hi everyone,

 

Thank you all for sharing your feedback on this feature. You now have the ability to control line spacing in the Third Generation Editor! When working in a text block you can change the spacing between your lines of text. Your choices of spacing are single, 1.2, 1.5, or double line spacing.

Re: Line spacing

Hello @KarenB094. I'm sorry that you were having trouble changing the line spacing in your campaign. You are using our third-generation editor which does not have the ability to adjust line spacing at this time. What I can suggest is that you can do a soft return (one line return) by pressing Shift+Enter (Windows) or Shift+Return (Mac). I will put in feedback regarding your request to adjust line spacing and I also encourage you to leave your own feedback on our Feedback and Ideas board

Re: Line spacing

This issue needs immediate attention. This is such an important aspect of the visual impact of an email - we HAVE to be able to edit the spacing between paragraphs. Is the patch for this bug in the works?

Still no fix for this? I talked to someone on the phone about this a year ago.

Re: Line spacing

Constant Contact is great for so many things, but when it comes to fine tuning design related details, like line spacing and incorporating commonly used Google fonts along with web fonts, unfortunately CC isn't ahead in thought.  How soon can we expect for these features to be added?  I personally liked the 2Gen version because at least I could edit a few things in HTML, but I can't do this here without fully writing code. Help please....this makes me want to switch to another provider that has some of these design fundamental functions.

 

Thanks.

Re: Line spacing

Hello @JaniceC645. I can understand why you would want access to the HTML in the third-generation editor in order to adjust your line spacing. While I can't provide any additional information about the request for this feature, I assure you that our developers are listening to your feedback and I will be sure to put this feedback in your account to send over to them.
