I am starting a new campaign in the 3GE and I see a button to change color for "Buttons & Dividers". Our brand color is red, so I want red buttons, but I do NOT want red dividers or a red border around my email, which is what I am getting. Why would you lump these settings together? I need to be able to set colors independently of each other like I could in the old editor. Please fix this or else I will have to go back to using the old editor.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thank you for reaching out in the Community! I'm glad you are giving our newest editor a try! You should find the color options for buttons and dividers in the Design tab on the left side of the screen. Alternatively, if you want to change the color of the buttons and dividers individually, you do have the option that you can click in to the button or divider you wish to change. Once the formatting window pops up, you will see the option to change the color of the button or divider. It will be a square icon with the current color of the divider or button.
Please feel free to reach back out to us if you have any other questions on this. Have a great day!
I did eventually figure out how to change these colors, but I strongly suggest you consider making at least the button color option separate from dividers. In order to remove the colored border around my email (which you can't edit individually), I now have a default button color of white. When I add a new button, it's very annoying to have to guess which is the correct option to change the background color.
Edit to attach images
Red buttons gives a thick red border around the the entire email. I can adjust the divider lines individually, but not the border.
White "Buttons & Dividers" to remove the red border makes new buttons disappear. Then I have to change their color individually.
Please make these separate options in the editor on the left side.
I'm glad that you were able to at least get the look that your were hoping for, but I can absolutely see what you mean about those buttons disappearing. We're tracking a feature request for that exact reason, and I'm adding you to the list of people who want a separation in the default button and divider colors. If you have any other feedback please let us know so we can pass that along to the development team as well.
Seconding the request for separate global divider/button color selection. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to change the colors of the buttons that default when you enter poll content block without changing the entire divider around the email.
