Editing the HTML source code of a message

You can view the source code for any HTML message in Direct Mail. Here's how:

  1. Choose Message > Show Source from the menu bar.

If you would like quick access to the "Show Source" menu item, you can use the keyboard shortcut or add the optional "Show Source" button to your toolbar (choose Window > Customize Toolbar).

Editing Source Code

In addition to viewing source code, you can also edit the source for HTML messages in Direct Mail that meet any of the following criteria:

  1. The message was imported into Direct Mail (from a file, webpage, or third-party app)
  2. The message was created using the Plain template
  3. The message was created using a legacy template (i.e. a template listed in the "legacy" section of the template chooser, including templates from Direct Mail 4 and templates from Apple Mail)

Exiting Source Code View

To exit source code view, choose Message > Hide Source from the menu bar.
