Hi Sam, sorry to hear that you are having some issues with the new style button editor. We have not received any other client issues or uncovered any issues during our testing, so we would be eager to look into this further for you. Let us know if you wish for someone to explore this further or equally if you have resolved your issue. The EasyEditor has many great design functionalities which allow you to create fully functional campaigns on the fly. The functionality is fully tested with all modern clients prior to and after release. The button code you reference is part of this functionally, it allows both full autonomy over your call to action button creations but also ensures correct rendering across the majority of popular email clients. The EasyEditor also allows users to upload their own vanilla email code, so please feel free to experiment with custom button creations also. If you have raised a support ticket with the dotmailer technical support team, please let me know the number and I will look into this for you personally. Ger Ashby - Creative Director
Hi Jason, I have my whole team setup on the G13, I mentioned this little device at a Litmus event while back. Lots of software work flow tools available but not many hardware options in addition to the standard dev Mac and PC setup.
Being a keen PC gamer back in the day (now mostly console, PS4 if you want to hit me up) I experimented with the number keypad peripheral for other applications and it worked fantastically. The Logitech G13 http://bit.ly/1UrZOqm has 3 memory banks for each application in use, each memory bank accessed will allow you to bring up a different set of stored functions or commands for a bunch of keys (25 to be precise, plus a toggle).
So you could be working away in your favourite code application using 1 bank of keys for your structural snippets, 1 bank for your standard mobile tags or maybe another bank for copy insertion. If you then flip over to Fireworks or Photoshop you will have a different set of stored commands for each. You can store a set of key inputs (Cmd Ctrl Shift 4), a bunch of copy, some typed code, shortcuts to snippets, maybe different ESP tags etc. The toggle (joystick) is useful for all sorts of thing, I tend to use it for collapsing / re-opening code or undo's in Photoshop etc.
So yeah once you take some time out to set this bad boy up it can save you literally stacks of time going forward. I do a lot more admin and consultation these days so mine tends to be used more for stored email replies or powerpoint decks ;)
We use this tool with a bunch of other work flows, most mentioned already (if not into Logitech try the Razor).
Hope this helps.
