I have been trying to add a signature with name underneath to no avail. I used an image block with caption to get the signature placed but I can't get if to line up as a left justified. I use the 4 arrow button that moves the image but it doesn't stick.

Hi there!

I'm not 100% sure I understand the trouble your facing here.  It looks like in the screenshot the caption on the right is left justified.  There are limitations to where you can move a text box, this is because the way an email is rendered is via HTML tables.   As a caption, the text must remain underneath the imageIf you want to align those two captions underneath the images above it's best to make sure the images are the same size.  For the most accurate resizing this is best done outside of Emma.

When I took a look in your account at this mailing I did see that the caption highlighted here was centered.  By looking at the HTML using the < / > button on the toolbar it looks like you've been using spaces instead of line breaks here, this is why it was not able to be left-justified.

Feel free to check out my Support version in your account where I've amended that, the results is the text is now left-justified, however, if you wan't them to line up vertically you'll want to use images that have the same raw dimensions.

Hope that helps!  Let me know if you have any follow-up questions :)
