I wanted to chime in on this thread regarding the lack of Forward to a Friend in the third-generation editor. The simplest answer is that due to lack of usage in our previous editor (both our users inserting this link, and recipients using this link) we decided not to implement the feature. We also wanted to solve for cases where this feature was used as a workaround (such as getting around possible display issues), with other features or improvements to the editor. With our current editor being under active development, we want to focus on the latest and greatest features that will bring as much value as possible to our users. While I can understand that some users found this feature valuable, our plan is not to rebuild the second-generation editor, but rather to learn from its mistakes/successes to create a new, best-in-class editor.
To address some of the concerns around the lack of this feature:
I love all the feedback I’ve been reading on the third-generation editor and the team is looking forward to continuing to deliver awesome new features into 2018. Stay tuned for some great new features coming out first thing in January!
Forwarding from their email server causes the background to be copied for the new email. When it is dark, you can't read the text. Also, we have no idea who they sent it too. Please make available again.
Thank you for your input. Consistency and accurate reporting are both very important concerns for your emails. I would be happy to pass along that feedback. If you have any screenshots or more information on the display issues you are receiving, please send them to social_support(at)constantcontact(dot)com and reference this post and I would be happy to make sure all of that information is attached to your feedback!
Um, duh, the missing "Forward to a Friend" feature is essential to prevent people from unsubscribing others. Please add this with haste to your newer editor.
Thanks for joining us in the Community! We certainly understand why it would be helpful to have this feature available to your emails and it can be important. We will add your account to the current request list as well.
We also appreciate your feedback on the survey tool and will pass this along to our development team.

Another request for Forward to a Friend. I've been going crazy trying to find the setting for it because I remembered it being a feature. Frustrating!
