Hi @Frankie_P, There might be too many to list, but I'll submit what I can think of. It seems that for every user-friendly convenience you added, you subtracted a feature of more importance. In short, you've stripped away a lot of the control that we used to have. The Design panel is way too limited. I am not able to define styles specifically for headlines or subheads. As designers, we should have much more control over size, color, or font. And then in the builder, I want to be able to highlight the text and apply the style. This was something we could do in the old builder. We could set separate font styles for captions, links, etc. Now there is only one thing we have control over: Body. Same with Buttons. The only choice I have is to select the button color. I want to be able to define the corners. Round vs. straight. Size of rounded colors. I want to set a style for the font and not just accept what the chosen template offers. Dividers are paired with Buttons, but I want to be able to define a different color. And I want to define a specific divider size and padding. As it is now, I have to change the divider settings manually each time. Full disclosure, I happen to want the buttons and dividers the same color, but I would still want the ability to treat them as different elements. The images panel is a nice feature, but there's no search filter. In the builder, there are several short comings. Probably more than I'll be able to remember. First and foremost, I no longer have the option to work with the HTML. As Mark noted, we're not all novices. When placing a picture, I cannot specify a size. I suspect that that has something to do with responsive design, but I want to at least be able to define the max width. There doesn't appear to be a way to insert a table matrix. I can't adjust the padding of a block. I'm sure there's more, but this is a good start. What it comes down to is you should allow as much control as the user want to have. The novices can ignore most of it. But it's invaluable for the professionals. Thanks, Ernie C. Marketing Manager Neotech Products
