Place content blocks/Images inside of another Content block
Ability to lay images or other content blocks within another content block.
We aren’t planning on building this into our feature set at this point in time since it doesn’t fit into our current product roadmap. There is a workaround available. You can drag and drop content blocks next to each other and it will appear as a multi-column block layout (see attached image).
Please keep upvoting this idea so we can keep considering it every time we work on our roadmap. Should you come across any other ideas that suit your business needs, don’t hesitate to give them an upvote!

I was trying to put an image inside of a text box field and couldn't. 100% in favor of this being fixed!

Insert one block into another

One of the features I miss, coming from a design perspective, is the ability to save GROUPS of content to the content library. This feature would sit halfway between saving individual content blocks and saving the entire page. It would be particularly useful for saving ROWS (multiple columns) of content that clearly belong together in a particular format.

Ability to input a table inside of a text block
Other users have submitted similar ideas, such as nesting blocks within blocks. Either way the problem is when we spend time creating a "section" consisting of multiple different content elements (columns, rows, images, text, etc), it only lets us save each individual element to the Content Library.
PandaDoc is supposed to make proposal creation quick and easy, but it's counter-intuitive to have to drag each individual saved element from the Content Library and re-create entire sections I had previously built. I suppose a workaround would be to save the entire page with the "section" of mixed content elements you created, but having the ability to just save the entire section would be most ideal.
See attached screenshot of an example of what I mean by section of mixed content.

I'd like to see something implemented similar to the content library, but for smaller blocks. So I could make a "component" with an image and a caption or maybe a heading and text block or a logo grid, then add that set of elements (call it a block, group, whatever) to a "component library" for future use. Then when a users wants to add a reusable component, it would just drop into a page instead of creating a new/blank page with just those elements on it.
This would work best if we also had a way to link or group content elements together so they could be positioned in a document as one unit instead of having to drag each individual element around separately.
