- Text editor
- Editable layouts
- Dragable layouts inside email container
- only 2 and 3 columns layouts, no chance to get more of them
- percent split and the smallest split step is 5% (don't understand why?)
- layout padding issues, the vertical padding sometimes
- image padding issues - the padding added to image element instead of parent TD
- button content block:
- missing basic text styling as bold, italic or underline,
- strips all custom styles added in HTML tab
- parent 'table' have default cellpadding value set to 5 and you can't delete it in HTML. It always coming back.
The Content Builder is not so bad, at least the text editor was improved (it's so a huge headache for marketers without any HTML knowledge).
After using it for a while (6 months) and already set a few email templates, content layouts I can say that Content Builder is an improvement for Exact Target, compared it with Classic Content.
The pros are:
The cons are:
In the process of building first few template, I collected so many notes of strange logic behind Content Builder. But can say one thing - if you are using HTML paste in Classic Content don't go to Content Builder. The Content Builder is worth only if you editing a lot of text.
Thanks Mike for your ideas.
I would love to use • character instead of an image, but design requires bullet point to be much bigger than text size next to it and this breaks vertical alignment on Outlook. I tested your idea and it not working consistently on major email clients, Outlook 2013 & 2016 moving text to the bottom of a cell. Anyway thanks for your help, the @Kam idea to set the font size to 0 on image cell works perfectly.
