Need Search and Replace capability in the Editor. The Editor still pretty rudimentary.

Hi @JosephF8616. What type of Search and Replace are you looking for? Would this be for text or some other aspect of the editor?

Text search and replace would be a welcome addition. Copying emails and editing them for reuse is common and often the changes would be more efficiently done using a search and replace function.

Thank you so much for clarifying what you are looking for and I agree that this would be useful for editing emails. I'll open this idea up for voting.

We're re-opening this idea to gather some more insight and better understand how this tool would work when copying or editing a campaign. Most browsers have a Find feature that can accomplish almost the same need but with a manual replacement of text. We're looking for some use cases when this would not be useful.

 

  • What text would be searchable?
  • Would this be for dates, locations, etc?
  • Does the tool fit in best when working within a block or in a place like Preview/Test?

Thank you for your feedback! At this time, this request for a find-and-replace feature is not on our roadmap for a future release so we will close this post as Not Currently Planned. Should we hear any news, we'll update this post with information as we receive it.
