HTML code in new email editor
I think there should be a way to see HTML in the new version of the email messenger editor tool (drag and drop).
At this time we are not looking to make the HTML code available for view. Should this change in the future, we can revisit this request. If you would like to discuss further, you are welcome to comment here.
Thank you for your understanding,

Hi, we would beneft hugely from a capability to edit the HTML of the message after it has been created with the Message Editor. For example, we use CSS to display on mobile the categories in the header the way we want them - resembling buttons. The problem is that only the category names are clickable, not the whole area of the 'button'. We need access to the HTML to make the 'button' clickable. Another scenario - for the 'view online' link of the message, we want to display the message subject line in the meta title area of the browser. We have been told we need to create custom HTML to insert the <title> tag, in which to insert a tag for the subject line.

I see the comment from June saying this feature is planned... any updates on when it will be available? We have a regular need to access our message HTML for another platform we have integrated with Bronto and our inability to get the HTML code causes a problem.
We are planning to add an option to view the full HTML for your messages. At this time we do not plan to include an option to edit this HTML, as it would risk breaking the App integrations, responsive design and other default code.
Please continue to add your comments and/or voting support, so we can continue to evaluate this decision and find a solution for each use case.
The message editor gets the job done 90% of the time. However, it would be nice to be able to access the HTML that it is creating, for the times when we can't get it done through the editor's options.
Thanks so much for your submission. We have received this request before. At this time we are not looking to open the full HTML for viewing as it would also expose our code for the Message Editor itself. You can review the original ticket below, as well as the conversation in finding an alternative solution.
In this scenario the customer was looking for the HTML to make specific changes to URLs. Could you provide additional details on what you were looking to edit? Even if we're unable to open the full editor's HTML, I may still be able to get you open access to the code you're actually looking for.
Thanks so much for the clarification, and have a great evening!
