When creating new campaigns.  I sometimes will need to go back to an old campaign and pull out html or text, etc. from the editor.  I was thinking it would be nice to be able to have a side by side view so I can either drag and drop from an old campaign into a new campaign or copy and paste the html etc.

Here is the LONG list of steps I go through almost every week...
  • Create a new campaign
  • Select a template
  • Start editing and creating content, etc.
  • Finding out....dang I need the font properties from another campaign so....
  • Close and save the current campaign I'm working on
  • Find the old campaign (preview is great) open it (which then creates a new campaign that I'll have to go back in and delete)
  • Rename the old campaign "delete" so not to confuse myself with which campaign I'm currently trying to create
  • Copy and paste the info I need from this old campaign
  • Close the campaign and delete it
  • Reopen the campaign I'm currently trying to create
  • Paste the info into the new campaign
  • cross my fingers I don't have any problems
Confused...yea it's a lot of steps.

Have any other solutions????

I use the same font properties across all of my campaigns and if I use a ready made template I have to go in and edit it all.  That's frustrating.  It just doesn't seem very efficient at all.

Thanks!

I'd also like to say, the font editor never does right for me. Not sure why.

Hi Brandi! I’m sorry to see you have a long workflow. I’m curious: Have you tried creating a copy of the last mailing you sent and working from it, since it would have all of your font stylings already in place? You could still switch the template being used behind your content, if you wished.

When it comes to the font editor not working, we’re glad to take a look, if you’d like to create a new conversation for us to delve in!

Well that's a workaround for sure, just never thought of doing it that way.  The text editor is working right now too.

Thanks!

Cool! I’m going to switch this conversation from an Idea to a Question, but give me a shout if you find yourself still looking for a better workflow.
