I'm having an issue where dynamic content is adding weird hidden characters above and below the variant blocks. There's no way to remove this and it's being included in the send, breaking my emails. I have custom HTML set up in compatibility mode and am not interested in following the email designer code structure.
Thanks for trying to help. These characters are being added by the editor around dynamic content and there's no way of removing them unless I switch to the legacy editor. I might log a support ticket to see if they can have a look.
Adobe should not insert something like that, but if you have designed your template via something like Dreamviewer and then copy-paste template code into Adobe, it might sneak in there accidentally. Adobe will allow you to past Unicode characters into the template, but when the template is saved, they will be converted into their XML representation.
I suggest to install something like notepad++, open new text file and set UTF-8 encoding. Copy your HTML code into this text file and save it. It will convert any Unicode character into "?" or an empty string. Now just delete them and copy the clean code to Adobe.
