What is it?
Why is it important?
To put it simply - everything. If you’d like a detailed rundown of all the features in the new Design Manager, feel free to refer to our designers documentation. Below, we’ve listed out some of the highlights.
Organize your files however you see fit, and drag and drop them from one folder to another quickly and easily. This new file management system lives in a collapsible sidebar to the left of the editor.
The new editor still has the drag and drop functionality our customers have come to expect. What’s different is that now when dragging a module into a new one, we will define every area where that module can be placed, eliminating any confusion of how a module will interact with another. You can also now group modules together with traditional keyboard commands, and quickly clone these modules with the click of a button.
Contextual Menus & Helpful Shortcuts
Right click on an element in the new Design Manager, and based on what you click you will get a contextual menu. This essentially replaces the gear icon found on modules in the old design manager. There are also a number of Keyboard shortcuts to simplify making quick edits.
Linked Error Console
Everyone makes mistakes while coding, but not one should need to worry about publishing imperfect code. The new Design Manager includes an error console at the bottom of every template that will let you know when there are any errors that would prevent you from publishing. The error console includes links to exactly where in your template/code this error occurs, and there will be helpful messaging provided so developers know exactly what needs to be changed so they can publish.
What language is it in?

Who gets it?
The new design manager is now available in all Marketing Hub Basic, Professional, and Enterprise portals. For now, users can still toggle on or off the new design manager while it remains in beta.
