    1. Make the SEND EMAIL Box able to be resized.  Working in this tiny window is a pain, and god forbid I have to select more text than the screen can show.  Then it selects the entire box, and for some reason teh cut, copy, delete, and paste functions no longer work.

     

    2. You allow the insertion of everything else into the email alert generated except HTML insertions.  Oh they can come on the form with the show headers stuff on the submitted forms within the system.  But its a ROYAL PITA, to have to copy and paste all of my HTML into the email.

    If you can insert {field1} of any sort, why cant you create {HTML1} {Html2} {Html3} and so on and just allow those to be inserted into the email generated.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    1. I am not quite sure how to reproduce the problem with not working "copy/paste" functions, but I have created a feature request ticket about resizeable Compose Email Wizard.

    However, I do not know when or if that request will be processed. We will let you know once we get any more information on this.

    2. You can click on a HTML icon to get into the HTML Source Editor. There you can manage your Email HTML code.

    Please note that you can not insert scripts and separate stylesheets via that HTML Source Editor.

    You totally missed the Point on part 2
    Right now the only way to get the HTML, ie contract documents, into the email, is to copy and paste the HTML from the form itself, into the email.
    ITS NOT ABOUT EDITING THE HTML OF THE EMAIL, I dont want to EDIT Html, if there was something else to call it on the form I would use it, but the bottom line is if you need more than a sentence, the HTML insert is the only way to accomplish this task
    ITs about taking the HTML sections of the FORM , and moving them to the EMAIL, automatically or in a quick way.
    Every Field that you inset into a form, can be inserted into an email. There are short codes created for each item.
    Create short codes that map the HTML from the form to the email itself.
    That way when i have 3 paragraphs that someone is agreeing to by clicking accept, it shows up in the email, because right now it DOES NOT, and while you can get it visible inside Jotforms, If the end user who is getting the email does not have access, and will never have access, the only way that it can be seen is to cut and paste the HTML / Words / Paragraphs / etc. into the email itself.

    @Greg

    Hi, you are correct on this...

     the only way that it can be seen is to cut and paste the HTML / Words / Paragraphs / etc. into the email itself.

    And currently, this is the only way to convey the 'terms' or 'paragraph' of information from the form to the email notification going to the recipients.

    As Mike_T mentioned already, that scripts and stylesheets are entities that cannot be inserted, it is the same too with html. Although I am not 100 percent correct about the reason, I do know that it is about 'security'.

    If scripts,stylesheets and full html scripts are allowed to be inserted, it will then allow manipulation of how the email notification/message will behave when it reaches a recipient or target.

    With this entities inserted, cross-site scripting can happen.

    Specifically, if full html script is allowed, then this will allow 'user provided' input in the notification email or page script.

    Please inform us if you have further inquiry.

    Thanks.
