Greetings... how to retain formatting in an email?


#1

Just discovered this awesome app several hours ago via Cult of Mac.

Question though, I formatted parts of an email draft in bold, but it didn’t retain that formatting when I sent the email

Is there a way to insure that it does ?

Cheers.

Drafts is a plain text editor, it does not do rich text, per se. It does support Markdown for conversion to HTML - which can be supported in email.

A standard “Mail” action is configured by default to send as plain text. If the mail action is configured to “Send as HTML” it will assume the template of the action step is creating HTML and send as formatted HTML content. Details of mail action step configuration.

This Markdown Mail is an example configured to convert Markdown in the draft to HTML and send with rich text formatting. I believe this is what you are looking for.
