Select multiple blocks to move at once

I wish there was a way to group objects in emails. I use three dividers in my campaigns to create a cool effect, but when I need to move them I have to individually move them, so if there was a way to group them and move them together that would be cool.

Hi @BFACC 

 

I can understand how helpful it would be to group or lock sections of your email together to easily edit your design. Where would you look for a feature like this to exist in your email? Would you want it to only apply to only dividers or other blocks as well?

Has this comment been addressed? I would like to be able to group blocks together.  When I create a unique pattern of images and blocks and want to replicate or move to another section of the email it's difficult to move them each individually.

Hi @KennyK56 how does working with our pre-built layout blocks not fit your needs? Or the move icon available when you place your cursor over the layout you want to move?

Frankie, I think that if there are several group blocks together, and you want to move them ALL, there has to be a better way to select them, rather than doing 1 by 1. 

 

Its easy to move one block sure, but if you have 3 or 4 or more with dividers, images, and several blocks all part of one news blast, with several news blasts in one entire email that goes out, it has to be easier. Just saying its easy to move a block, isn't helpful. 

 

For example, we have a news blast that has several articles. In each article, we have several blocks with videos or English/Spanish/Portuguese translations. IF I want to move one article to a different location (because this month's might have one article that is outdated or the date changes) then I have to move EACH block in that article, one by one to the new location, that takes time. Adding a check box to group them all to move together, shouldn't be hard to do.

So, I'm assuming from this thread that there is no way to move multiple blocks at once. That is very frustrating and hopefully something that gets added in future updates, sooner than later.
