Trying to format the text within a table like I have in the past, but now it is changing the formating for all the text in the table cell. I used to be able to select specific text and it would change only the selected text. Change just happened this week and I am using the same base template- It worked as it has for months previously.

Hi James, 

Can you point me to the sub you're working in and the template and/or mailing you're working with?  

Was any of the text brought in via copy/paste?   Bringing in pasted text can cause some unusual formatting issues.  Tables formatting is funky enough on its own  :) 

I'll be on the lookout for your reply!

Hey there James, are you still having issues with this?  If so, let me know the mailing I can take a look at and I'll be glad to take a look.  

Cheers!

Thanks for that!  I am going to pass this along to some folks to take a deeper look and see what's going on.  I'll keep you posted as I get more information!

Hi James,
Ben here stepping in for Grey. I did some checking around and wasn't able to find any releases where the table feature had changes made, but tables can be kind of finicky sometimes. If you are having trouble with editing the color of one line of text, you can go into the HTML view of the table cell and change the RGB number.  I jumped into the support copy of the mailing in your account and tested this by changing some of the RGB values in the left column and was able to change individual lines that way. You can access the code view from the </> button on the toolbar and find the RGB values in the color selector in the toolbar (screenshot included.)





Let me know how else I can help with this!
