View template in actual size without creating new mailing

There are often occasions when we need to look at a previously sent email or one of our templates to check something, but we are not creating a new campaign at that time. When we open a template, an untitled campaign is automatically generated. When we open a previously sent campaign, a copy of that campaign is automatically generated.

This is very frustrating because the draft tab gets cluttered with campaigns that then have to be deleted. With the untitled campaigns (generated from templates) it is really confusing because they all are "untitled" so you can't be sure you are deleting the one you created unless you open it.

It's overkill to generate all of these drafts automatically. Seems like it makes a lot more sense for the user to save a new draft if they want one rather than automatically generate one.

Pretty please change this feature! :)

Here's what I've learned: There are changes to come to the template gallery, but a larger view of a template isn't currently planned. I'm going to mark this as Not Planned for now, but we'll keep this in mind during the template gallery's makeover later this year to see how it fits into the plans.

Upon rereading your original post, I wonder if I misunderstood and took “template” to mean one of the readymade templates in the template gallery when maybe you were referring to mailings. Did the above link with information about the view button help?
