I would like to finally migrate to responsive emails, but the limitations of the new builder may make this impossible.
I don’t understand why we don’t have the ability to do simple things such as:
- Change font sizes of texts or create our own custom styles
- Why images shrink on mobile even if there is plenty of space to display it in full
I have a very simple email design that I want to migrate from the classic builder to the new one:
- A hidden pre-header at the top (By setting the color to white)
- A small text above the logo
- The logo
- The email text
But if I replicate the same template in the new builder it looks like complete crap both on the desktop and mobile
The font at the top is way too big and the image is sized way too small on mobile. And there is no option to adjust anything.
That’s not how any responsive website or responsive email builder I’ve ever used works. The choices that were made are mind boggling to me.
I was able to create a perfect responsive template in mailchimp within 10 minutes:
I really hope I am missing something and someone can point into the right direction of how I can solve this. I am even open to any kind of hacks you can think of…
But overall I really don’t understand how it could be that IS released responsive emails 2-4 years after most other email providers and STILL managed to deliver the most inflexible and inferior solution…
