Thank you for including your feedback on this feature request! While the ability to control line spacing is not a feature that is yet available, we have tracked your feedback on this and submitted it to our engineers.
It is now September 2018. Please, Constant Contact. Line Spacing is so basic. Either your engineers should be fired, or they are not paid enough.
I am so sorry for any inconvenience caused from not having this feature. I can definitely understand how helpful a feature like this will be available. While we do not currently have a time estimate of when it will be available, it is a feature request being tracked and looked into by our engineers. When this feature does become available we will notify customers through the Notification Center of your accounts.
Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist with in the meantime!
We've been uploading our own custom HTML emails for years with CC, and I was excited to finally try out your templates for our next one. The fact that you're missing this very basic function (among others) is making what should be a simple task impossible. It's been a year and a half since this request was made, so it's obvious your team has no interest in fixing this issue. I'm sad to say that I have to go back to the old way and abandon trying to use your templates and editor. It's just way too limiting.
Considering that you've just started trying to use one of our templates, your disappointment is absolutely understandable. When working with a template you're essentially trading the complete control you had before, for ease of use and some pre-designed qualities. We're still absolutely tracking requests such as this, and I'll add your request to the others that have already been mentioned in this thread. I'm sorry that our current templates don't currently meet the needs for your vision of your campaign.
Thank you all for sharing your feedback on this feature. The good news is our development teams has added the ability to control line spacing in the Third Generation Editor! When working in a text block you can now change the spacing between your lines of text within the entire block. Your choices of spacing is single, 1.2, 1.5, or double line spacing.
Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist with in your account.
I am new to Constant Contact. Just started a campaign and the line spacing shows a 1 for an individual block and a 1.2 for another individual block, but clearly this is not correct. It looks like it may be the opposite. I can't change the second individual block because its already a 1 but that is incorrect. Has anyone else had this problem.
Hi @MonaBouillion. Thank you for pointing that out and I see exactly what you mean. Was this text copied and pasted from somewhere? If it was, it's possible that it brought over some formatting that caused the spacing to be off. I created a Support Copy of the email and I adjusted both text blocks so they are now set at 1 for the line spacing. You can now go in and adjust the line spacing if you think the text needs a little more breathing room.
