Adjust image padding in an email

Suddenly, there is no longer the option to click on an image to ad padding. As a result, there is no space between the image and the text jn the mobile version of the campaign, and it looks sloppy and amateurish. Is anyone else having this issue? It's almost as if they are trying to drive customers away with each update.

Hi @Solson , 

 

There is still a way to adjust the padding regardless of which editor you are using. Please see this guide for a walkthrough on adjusting the image padding. Similarly, you can add a spacer block above or below the image, and adjust the padding pixel by pixel.

Neither option is available when the text wraps around the image:

Text wrapping doesn't have adjustable padding, as the default is there to ensure no bleedthrough from text. If you're wanting to adjust padding, I'd advise adding your image outside of the text block - i.e. drag and drop when it's a pink line, not a pink box.

There used to be padding around a photo with text wrap. Now there isn't. Why did you remove that functionality?

That functionality may have been a part of the more HTML-intensive 2ge builder, but that's been retired for some time now. The retiring 3ge builder and the current CPE builder don't have a padding adjustment aspect to text-wrapped images.
