The new eMail Builder is incredibly annoying. It takes twice or MORE as long to create a email and that's if the browser doesn't crash (mine does multiple times a session). I'm kind of too frustrated right now for a thorough list after trying to get an email designed and scheduled that was time critical. 1) Why for heaven's sake would you use a right click methodology to "duplicate" or "delete" something? This is so clunky and hard to use, especially for those who have slower internet, slower computers or have handicapped issues using their fingers like I do. Today, I accidentally deleted something I was trying to duplicate, not just a couple of times but at least 8 times. One was related to the header, and I couldn't figure out how to add the deleted image back in to the messed up format. 2) The previous email Builder gave you an option of selecting variously formatted blocks relative to your selected template - some with headers, some without, some with text, some without. However, now EVERY text box has to be reformatted which takes multiple clicks and selections to add a header in, remove a image, etc. And if I try to use the "Duplicate" option, I'm just as likely to DELETE by accident. 3) The font size and color of inserted text do not automatically change to the template settings like it used to which makes reformatting everything a hassle. (See #2!) 4) The Preview does not show what I see in Edit accurately. I add text blocks, dividers, images, etc and not everything will show up in Preview. I've tried emailing a test to myself but honestly, who has time for this? It should work. 5) The new email Builder crashes a lot. I've using IE 11 right now. I used Chrome and Firefox before the new Builder was forced on us but it worked even worse on those browsers. BTW - I've been using Constant Contact for over 7 years and I've seen lots of changes in the eMail Builder. This one has numerous user issues. And the tutorial does not address any of my questions. I even tried Chat today to ask questions but got no answer other than my comments would be provided to the designers. I hope so because this is not fun any more.
