Adding a snippet is gone with new "unified" client app

With the new "unified" RC client app, the ability to post a code "snippet" is gone. (I'm not talking about the [code] ... [/code] option - that is different.) 
With the old client, you could press Cmd-Shift-S (I think) to bring up a window where you could paste text into, and it would then be posted as a "snippet" without formatting.
This option seems to be gone now. We need a way to post text in RC without it trying to "interpret" the text and formatting it. [code][/code] works for some things, but Snippet was better in many cases.

Hello everyone,

I've confirmed with our product team that this is coming at the end of Q4. Keep an eye out in December!

In addition to this, the in in-line code feature (`sample code`) is very limited. It appears to only put a background color on the text, and doesn't even use a monospaced font.

The new app is missing many many of the useful features.  Classic still has it.

I agree, this is a huge missing feature from the new app. Please revive some sort of code snippet feature.
