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.

Constant Contact, it's been 2 years since the need for this simple feature was brought up. No solution in all that time?

Is there a plan to add this feature to be able to move more than one block/section at a time?  A way of grouping things together?

@Frankie_P It would be best if we could group all kinds of blocks together. The biggest problems are the dividers, because they are small and hard to reliably grab. My first thought is in the gear settings you could have a "Group block below" and "Group block above" and that would link the block above or below that object. If you can only do dividers/headers/etc. I understand these things can be complicated.

But, if I'm moving a header with decorative dividers, I want to move the section it is referencing. Thanks for your time!

I like CC, but having to move one design element at a time and dragging it down a long newsletter is not easy.  It's the one feature that has me searching for a new software program every month after copying and moving one element at a time.   Let's see who comes up with a turnkey way to copy and move template sections - CC, or a company that offers comparable software and a more flexible template program.  I like your  software - I hope it's you ....

It would be helpful if users can group/ungroup blocks of text, images, etc. (as you an in PowerPoint, Publisher, Canva and other programs) to make it easier to copy and move around.

It is painful and extremely time consuming to move each block individually. We're considering changing to another service because of the lack of usability and integration. Hoping this is available very soon.

Adding voice as well. Please allow grouping of blocks. Copying one by one is tedious and tiresome.

!!!PLEASE DEVELOPERS: ALLOW A GROUPING FUNCTION ASAP!!!

 

The most time-consuming part of creating our quarterly newsletters is dragging individual elements to a new location. Our newsletters are long and each section contains at a minimum six elements comprising: a spacer, divider, header text block, body text block, photo element(s) and caption text block. 

 

To make things even worse, dragging elements from the top to the bottom is a nightmare because it's nearly impossible to scroll down while trying to drag something. Imagine trying to do that with at least six elements for EACH section/story you need to move! If we had the ability to group elements, I could QUICKLY move that whole section in seconds instead of minutes.
