Ability to customize sub-bullets

I need access to my old stuff - how do to simple things like bullets and sub bullets are no longer available. Not everyone's contacts use only their mobile devices to look at emails. ridiculous. Constant Contact has wasted my time.

Hi @KristinL57433 where in your email campaign are you looking for bullets and sub bullets? Bullets are currently available through the formatting table that appears when in a text block.

As for sub-bullets, this is a feature request we are collecting feedback on and have tracked through this post. The workaround we suggest in the meantime is to add a two column layout beneath your main bulleted list, and add bullets in the right column of the two column layout to appear in a sub list format. As for your email on mobile devices, what changes are you seeing? How would you expect your email to appear instead?

I may be misreading @KristinL57433 's original post, but when I saw the headline about "customizing bulletsx" I thought that part of the request was to be able to change the type of bullet--for instance small bullet, larger bullet, arrow, check mark, etc. This allows you to use bullet styles for a variety of purposes. Add in the ability to control the spacing between bulleted items and you have a real improvement! Also agree sub-bullets would be good, but here again you need to have them actually treated as sub-bullets (that is, they should have a different "look" from the primary bullet. The other problem I see with your workaround is that the user has no control over the size of the columns in a two-column layout. Most of the time, you cannot make the first column as narrow as I would want to in order to have soemthing that really looks like a sub bullet.

Hi @rcppubs23 thanks for sharing your feedback on this post! The good news is we do have threads focused on having the ability to change appearance of unordered list bullets and changing line spacing for bulleted and numbered lists. In fact we recommend sharing your need for these features directly on the corresponding thread. The more requests like these threads receive the higher of a priority it can be given by our Product Team.

Thanks Frankie. I have already commented in both of those threads. Is there something stronger than that that I should be doing?

Any update to readding the feature of sub-bullets?

Still hoping for a more robust way to have this feature directly within Constant Contact... please.  doesn't seem like it should be difficult to do as it's out there in so many forms already. I'd be happy with 2 levels.
