Yeah, it took a whole day for me to build a new template on the new system and even that has limited options, doesn't look the same, and STILL isn't done. So, 12 hours spent on trying to recreate something that I could have copied with one click? And doesn't look or function anywhere near the same as the old, and tried and true, versions of my newsletter that I've been sending out for years? No way to just upgrade the template to the new version. Also, extremely limited editing capabilities - seriously, why would you get rid of a quote indent? Even the rotten Medium and LinkedIn editors have that ability. No frames around blocks, no ability to get into the HTML, very limited font and color change options, seriously limited layout design options. The "Build" section almost doesn't even exist with "8" options for block additions (text, image, spacer, divider, button, social media, video, "read more"). Just... what?? In order to do some of these things, we're told to do weird workarounds, like add in 5 dashes and make the text color white, to make an indent. Well, how do you do an entire text block for indent then? You can't. And of course, if you use the ----- method at the beginning of each line, it WILL be a disaster in any other format, like you know, when you send the email (I was curious, so did up a test version. Looked great in the editor and when I opened the actual email, it was a disaster just like I thought it would be.) Oh, and ironically, this editor I'm writing in, as more and clearer options than the campaign editor! I don't understand this dumbing down of a product. The reduction of options, the reduction of ability to actually nicely format a piece of work. It's extremely frustrating. And we pay for this privilege to give up literal days of my time trying to re-create something that has been working perfectly fine. I'm looking at a "competitor", which has an excellent editor, will do exactly what I need it to do, has all the various things I need, and hey, for free. So, I think our course is quite clear at the point.
