I dont know about others but I'm in love with the new editor. Yes, I do miss the earlier side by side view but this is a refreshing change and more importantly easy to use. I use a table more often these days and the new (Microsoft Word style) table creator is amazing.
Keep it coming Marketo!

How did you previously customize your links? If we added a simple "style" textbox so you could add custom CSS would that be sufficient? Same question for images, which functions did you previously use?
So, in what can only be considered classic Marketo form at this point they have "updated" the email editor with such a broken pile of garbage that a considerable amount of additional time is necessary to fix and author emails now. The WYSIWIG editor is anything but and forces all sorts of extranneous and unwanted html at every turn. This is HUGELY disappointing that you would see fit to put out a feature that is clearly nowhere near production ready. We spend a lot of money on this service and expect better.
Accessing HTML is a secondary menu, Bulletted lists create a formatting nightmare that can only be fixed by manually entering the HTML code. A white background is forced on colored text that can only be manually removed in HTML as well.
Yes there are definitely a few issues with the new editors. Biggest pet peeves of mine are as follows:
Plus, the new editor will not let you include soft returns <br /> tags unless you go through the HTML code view (buried - which requires an extra click). We use soft returns to ensure our emails display more consistently across different email clients. This is in addition to all the points already brought up.
I'm really of two minds about the whole ordeal; for emails I actually prefer the classic editor but find that the new editor is much better about accepting JS/HTML5, so I wind up using it a lot for landing pages.
Needless to say, I'm usually switching editors 2-3x a day. 😕
