Give us back our Legacy editor
We REALLY REALLY hate the new manual email editor. Being able to imbed images with the text (and have them flow as we amend text), and access to the underlying HMTL to tweak layouts were ESSENTIAL to our marketing efforts.
You should at least have left the option to stick with the legacy editor and let us worry about whether the potential downfalls are worth it.
I don't object to having a "beginners" editor available to those who need it, but forcing everyone to live with their limits is pretty paternalistic and, well, silly.
This might be the final straw to where we abandon WiAp for a more professional platform.

What was wrong with the prior editor???? I do not like this editor as it is not user friendly, and there was a brief training video that does not appear to be still available.

Exactly. I create a weekly newsletter also and do mine on Sundays. I pull up my template I have been using for years and can't add a picture to my content that is already in a single-column layout. The only way to add a picture, that I can see, is as a gadget <i>outsite</i> of the layout. There used to be an "image" button in the edtior. The new interface is horrible.

It is Friday, the day I write an e-newsletter. I copy a template and write content and send. This new email editor is awful and I don't have time to learn something that isn't intuitive. There is no way to edit content in a gadget?!

Hello, a little feedback on the new email system. I know it will take some getting used to but it was a DREAM before. It was far easier to use and I created some great looking emails with it! The blocks are too much like Mail Chimp and not as integrative. Everything is clunkier; sizing the images, adding buttons, adding blocks.
