I hope someone can help...
I've created a html newsletter template using MailStyler 2 which looks great is was so easy to do. I've tried to upload this into swiftpage and have matched all the images correctly but when it is complete the newsletter is formatted different from when I composed it in MailStyler. I've checked the sizing and they are both 600.
The two main issues are in the first table I had an image on the left with the text wrapped round it to the right and below but in swiftpage it now has the image then the text below and I can't seem to move the text to wrap this image.
Secondly I had another table which had two equal columns with text in, now I still have two columns but they are of different widths and I can't work out how to change the width. I thought that i would be able to click on the column boundary and move it but I can't even select it.
Many thanks for any help.

We use Swiftpage emarketing. I'm happy to share the template with you. I've attached the html one that I composed using MailStyler 2. If you need me to share the swiftpage template please let me know how best to do this.

There's a couple of styles you need to implicitly apply to get the results you are looking for:

Thanks for this Gary.
I've one more question. I assume that should we swap from swiftpage to Act emarketing this would still create the same issue if I were to create html newsletters in MailStyler 2 then upload them. Is there any chance that either swiftpage or act emarketing will become fully compatible with MailStyler 2 in the near future?

Thanks for all your help Gary. MailStyler 2 was just so easy to make a good looking newsletter up with. I find that the basic template editor in Swiftpage a bit restrictive as in you can only have one or two columns in the whole template.
I've altered by template as you advised earlier and this has worked a treat but when I saved it and it asked me to verify the footer the 'click here' buttons turned tiny so that they looked just like little spots. Do you know why this would happen and how I could fix this?
Thanks once again.

That's strange. I'm not sure why that's happened.
Try this version of the template I've attached. This has the changes made to the HTML directly.
You might find that the Act! emarketing template editor is more easy and familiar for you to use than the Swiftpage one. Have you tried it out yet?
Please note: Template layout and HTML support is not a standard service from Swiftpage. I've done this for my own personal training.
