This is really great job!! Looking forward for the actual roll out.
Still, here is the list of elementary features that are still pending and would be great if part of the 2.1
- Token picklists for Guided LP or email 2.0 template string variables
- Editor 2.0: Set Min and max dimensions for image elements and variables in Guided LP / email templates
- Guided LP and email 2.0 templates: max length for string variables
- Guided LP and email 2.0 templates: make variables elligible to dynamic content
- HTML CTA Elements for email and LP templates
- Editor 2.0: "Edit Code" (a.k.a "Replace HTML") permission
- Guided Landing Page or email 2.0 variables should display in the order set by designer
- Scripting on template, leveraging boolean or text variables
- Date and Datetime guided LP template variable
- Visibility Rules for variables in guided landing page and email 2.0 templates
- Authorize 2 elements to share the same content in a guided LP or email 2.0 template
- Default Alt value for mktoImg div element (workaroud exists, but the doc needs to be updated)
- Email Templates 2.0: enable containers and modules on <div> tags, not only on table elements

Hi Justin Cooperman,
Reviewing the docs, we have not found how we can set "alt" text for image elements or variables. This is really an important point as it conditions what people see when they do not download images (outlook default).
Is this a missing feature? Or what are we missing there?
Alt text is an option present for image elements but not image variables. This is because value of an image variable is simply the underlying image's URL. You'd use that if you didn't want the <img> to be inserted in the DOM, but actually wanted to use the URL somewhere (like in CSS background-image property...).
We will be adding a style textbox in the "insert image" dialog in v2, which will behave in similar way to the insert image experience in the text editor. It will just show you exactly what is the value of the <img> element's style attribute.
Thx. Great !
Thanks for this thread - looking forward to trying out the new editor! Haven't gotten access to it but sure we will soon
I thought it was being released last week? We don't seem to have access to it yet. Has the release been delayed?
If I am understanding things correctly, they began rolling this out on June 3rd and be available for everyone by June 8th. Also, I think once you do have it, you need to opt-in to it in you admin settings!
If we have a net new instance and get the feature enabled, do any future templates that our design team uploads have to have the mkto editable tags, or will the new editor allow you to just edit via WYSIWYG anywhere? It seems like new templates (that we create via HTML)won't need them, but just want to be sure!
An Email Template need not contain any Marketo tags to be valid:
It's now valid to create an Email Template where absolutely nothing is editable. Or you can include as many of our tags as you want. Our old email templates only had one type of tag, class="mktEditable" which would indicate that the element should be editable in the rich-text editor. It was previously required that your Email Template have at least one "mktEditable" section. So, you'll see we've dropped that requirement now. Those old "mktEditable" tags will, of course, still be supported but we've now introduced additional element types (besides just Rich Text) that you can take advantage of.
Hey Justin Cooperman, apologies if this has been asked already, but are we (relatively) easily able to toggle between Email 2.0 editor being on and off? From the product docs, it sounds like this will be possible, but I'd love to hear if this is something that we will be able to do if necessary.
