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.
It seems this issue is still not resolved? I only just started using constant contact as a client requested alternative, but the lack of line-height control is already affecting the functionality and look of some of my designs. It seems as if the line-height doesn't change when the font size changes, which sort of defeats the purpose of sizing the copy down.
Considering this issue dates back to April of 2017, i'm surprised that there hasn't been some sort of resolution to this issue. I understand there's always more to the story, but It shouldn't be that hard to insert another styling option such as this for the text blocks in the span of 8 months. If there are various issues aside from just line-height, perhaps an insertable html code block would be helpful so that users who need it could have full creative control over text styling through the use of html or inline css. I imagine it would solve this and most likely any future issues.
If there is any helpful information regarding this subject that I am unaware of, please advise as to where I can find it. Otherwise I would appreciate the added effort to solve this issue and a response that affirms it.
Thank you for your reply!
I apologize for any inconvenience that you have experienced adjusting the line spacing. In this case I have a workaround that should be of some assistance. You can change the font size on the design tab of your email campaign which should adjust the line spacing.
Please note that this will adjust the font size/line spacing for the entire email. That said, after you have adjusted the font size on the design tab, you can go into any one of your blocks and change the font size as needed.
I sure do hope that this helps! Thank you for reaching out to the Community. Have a great day!
Thanks for the quick response. This actually does help out quite a bit and is not a bad general solution to the issue. I was worried about how it might affect the different text sizes, but looks like the line-height for larger sizes won't go smaller than the default height of their own size. Very helpful, thank you! Only future issue I might run into is having the ability to control paragraph spacing, but that might be me being a little more particular than necessary.
You're welcome! I'm glad to hear this work around we've provided has helped. Being able to control line spacing is a feature request I would be happy to track in your account. I will be passing this feedback on to the appropriate team. We are always looking for ways to improve our user's experience!
Do you expect to have this resolved so that line spacing can automatically adjust to font size? Bulleted lists seem to format according to font size. Seems odd that the body text would not do that.
