Ability to edit HTML in email campaign

Arghh not dig'n it. How can I view a new account in the old editor? The new editor is like the new social social sharing tool... a wicked drag.

Thanks for the feedback! Yes, we're actively improving layout options and image resize features. I'll update this post as new features are released.

So full of bugs, esp. regarding links (quick link block is useless), I wasted an hour just trying to figure out how to hack around all the bugs.

Please give me back the ability to look and alter code!!!! Phone email is simple but lacking in ability to edit!

I'm finding it difficult, if not impossible, to use the new beta mobile templates. Here are just a few of the issues I'm having: - the default color of the text is set by the "primary" background color, which makes no sense. The default text color should be able to be set independently of the background. - when I select individual blocks of text and give them a new color they sometimes randomly change color, or sometimes just a few words change back to the background - there is no way to edit the source html in the new editor. Completely a non-starter. - there is no way to include contact details, such as last gift amount, within the body of an email. These are all major problems, since the new editor is a step backward from the control of the old editor.

Two more:

 

The line-spacing of the text varies at random, and there's no way to set it to be consistent throughout an email

There is no way to select "13" as the text size, even that's what the text within my block is set to.

That was definitely a strength of your platform over  and what not: we could get our final product to look the closest to what we intended because we could go in and fiddle with the html and style sheets. If anything, I think you should give more control over that, rather than less.

Thanks for the feedback! The beta editor doesn't currently have the ability to edit HTML and CSS. We're considering some different options for code view that will be implemented over time.

So I could fix issues like font size inconsistencies when on mobile device or just to customize. Multiple choice could be placed in a drop down for example and more options to brand it and make it more like our format. Thanks!
