Many programs and systems provide you with the ability to export snippets of HTML containing rich content. If you have a selection of HTML you wish to paste into EditLive!, there are two options available.
- Code View
- Insert HTML Fragment
Code view allows you to view the raw source of your HTML content. When looking at this, a power user can insert any HTML they like. This means that when you are using an external site and would like to copy and paste HTML, you can do so directly into EditLive!.
Insert HTML Fragment
EditLive! includes a plugin which makes inserting HTML from varied sources even easier. This plugin, Insert HTML Fragment, makes it very easy to insert HTML snippets into EditLive! without using code view.
Displaying the Insert HTML Fragment Dialog
Insert HTML Fragment is enabled via either the Insert HTML Comment... item in the Insert menu or by the button on the toolbar.
Using Insert HTML Fragment
Launching Insert HTML Fragment will display a simple dialog with a single text area into which HTML can be pasted.
In order to make this process extremely easy, EditLive! will check the clipboard for HTML when the dialog is first opened and automatically add this text directly to the text area. When the dialog is closed with the OK button, this HTML will be added to the existing document's source code.
