HTML View

I can't seem to find a similar suggestion.. I hope there are plans to have an HTML view for writing (and designing) posts.

Currently I'm able copy and paste from LibreOffice, and it would inherit some of the formatting. But I may want further control on how it would end up looking.

Hey Jeff

Nope that's not really on the roadmap. What are you looking to do that would require html formatting?

Hey Marc!

On a thread I posted here, I used the mentioned workaround above to insert tables onto the thread. But it lacks finer controls, like manually setting alignment and spacing. Some of the properties that I set for the table in LibreOffice isn't getting transferred when I paste it here on the editor. So I was hoping an html view of the post would let me tinker with some of those manually.

Cheers!
Jeff Lim

You can view the code by clicking on the 'source' button in the editor. Will that work for you?

I would assume that by viewing the code, it would also allow us to modify it? If so, that would be great! :lol:

Yip, try it out next time you reply here

I added the bold tag above in the source view.
