Hello @naturalresources @GreenheartExchange and @NeeleyS! I wanted to update you on the status of being able to insert five images next to each other. I'm happy to let you know that our third-generation editor now has a 5-column block that you can insert into your campaigns!
Just a few notes about this new feature:
We're so excited to announce this new feature and just had to let you know! Let us know if you have any questions.
I also feel that this new system is a little limiting for those who are "power users" and have some HTML knowledge. I'm struggling because I need 4 images in a row to recreate our current newsletter design. It would be nice if the columns weren't restricted and in the row using the drag and drop build items. Or give an HTML box build item so we can add code to make the row function as we need to.
I also agree that the third-generation editor is extremely limiting for those with stronger HTML knowledge. It's a little frustrating to find functionality severely cut down when it should be easier and have more options due to the templates being mobile-responsive.
Thanks for your feedback about this! I'm sorry we don't have the ability to add four columns to an email campaign in our newest editor. We suggest using two, 2-column blocks to accommodate this:
Another option would be to create the four images as a single image outside of your account, and insert it into your email campaign as a single image. Please know that I have submitted your feedback to our programmers about this functionality, and also about accessing the HTML code.
Sadly the stacked blocks don't work with our design. It's a button row we are trying to do and we don't want it to be huge, it should be more like the "find us on social media" button row that is created with the social widget you provide. So having the option to be able to add in a text box like this (that I'm typing in right now) so we can format some stuff on our own, but would still work with the mobile optimization, would be ideal.
Hello @DebbieA0. I can certainly see how this would be useful for you especially with the design you were looking for. We're always looking for way to improve our product and we have sent over your feedback. Thanks!
We have a great update for you all. I'm happy to announce that it is now possible to include a 5-column block within your Third-Generation editor.

Glad you like the five column layout! We are more than happy to pass along this feedback to our product team regarding a seven column layout. In the meantime, feel free to either use the five column layout with a two column layout below or a four column layout used with a three column layout.
