Match Font Families in Different Editors
I am fine with the limited selection of font families, with long experience working on the web before we had all the web fonts. What I'm really struggling with is matching font families and general styling between the new editor and the older automatic email editor.
For example, our chosen website theme uses Open Sans. Great all around sans serif font. I can also use it in manual emails so that they are styled much like our website. But automatic emails do not have a similar or even decent sans serif font ('Basic' is just ugly) so I chose Trebuchet. Now the problem is that event email mix up the two, using what's available with automatic emails (Trebuchet) but including event details that match the website (Open Sans). The result looks amateur and like we don't know how to use this system.
And don't get me started on the color picker. One editor has our theme colors all right there! The other forces me to find, copy, and paste the hex code for every single hyperlink so they better match the colors and logo.
Update to add: I can't even match font families within a single manual email. Not sure if this changed recently, but the template I use had Helvetica for the header and body text of the message. When I added a button link, I chose Helvetica for the button text. However, it looks like the actual encoding is Trebuchet.
Also Open Sans doesn't work in manual emails. It appears to be a basic serif font instead, hence the Helvetica even though our website theme is Open Sans.
