I am not a coder and am not looking to create entire emails using HTML code. HOWEVER, it is extremely useful and time saving to be able to copy the code from a particular block and not having to recreate it. Copying the entire email is a pain and is more time consuming when all you want to copy is one block. Example: Our sales team is comprised of various people in various places. When they want to send out a deal announcement regarding a recent funding to their referral source contacts, I would create the email in a legacy template, add the funding transaction, the new client logo, deal description, and I have a notepad doc where I keep everyone's "signatuares" in html format. Then at the bottom block I would use the HTML button to delete existing code and add the other person's code and done. And I would continue to do this until the announcement had been created for each person. This is a HUGE time saver. Until Constant Contact creates a library specifically for BLOCKS, which will allow users to save and reuse content blocks, I need to continue to use the legacy template. Which is a shame because I do like the new editor, and I thought upgrades were about adding features, not taking them away. The html button in the block edit is feature important enough where I need it on a regular basis. Constant Contact either needs to add an html button to the block edit menu or create a library where the user can save and reuse content blocks. One or the other. Would make things cleaner and faster for me anyway then having to copy and recreate. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE take this into serious consideration.
