We have a few templates where we use a lot of the same elements. When we develop and format a particular element (text box with formatted text, borders, photo, etc.) in one campaign/template that we'd like to use in other campaigns/templates, what is the best way to transfer that without having to create it from scratch?

Any other suggestions on how to make entering and formatting content more streamlined and easier across templates/campaigns would be great. We currently spend more time that we'd like on our weekly emails. 

I'm currently on Chrome Version 48.0.2564.97 (64-bit), but there are several different people working on our campaigns from various browsers and versions.

Hi Katherine! Sorry that you're sad, but I can definitely provide some options to help with your email creation process here.

If you have a specific text box with formatting that you want to replicate across other mailings, you can grab that text box's HTML code, then paste it into your other mailings. To find the HTML code, click on the </> button in the formatting toolbar, drag the "HTML" block into your mailing, and paste the code into that box -- you can read more about using HTML in this Resource Center article. Alternatively, if you're looking to reuse large elements of one mailing, you can always copy that mailing then edit as desired.

Please let me know if you have any follow-up questions Katherine!
