Does anyone know how to view source code for an email campaign built off a template? I'm looking to insert HTML code in a section of a template for an email campaign and was hoping there was a way to view source code in a draft email.

Hello @BetsyS682 ,

 

If you wish to use HTML to build your email, we'd advise using the custom code editor. The regular email editor cannot have its HTML accessed.

Ok I saw that.  I am basically looking to input a snippet of HTML into the template email, not draft an email from scratch.  Is there a way to get the HTML from the template I'm using and then import it into a new email using the custom code editor method?  Or is it just template or HTML and nothing in between?

The HTML of the regular email editor isn't accessible, so you'd need to choose whether you want to build the email wholly from HTML in the custom code editor, or build the email using the drag-and-drop method using the regular cross-platform/device editor (CPE).
