OK Thanks Eric
Well that sucks is all I can say. I don't even want to use it as a mailer. I just want to edit the HTML in a form. As you know the code in the form is just a knotted jumble.
Thanks for your time
I understand about having a hard time justifying with the cost. I think the developer cost lies in two areas.
1. Gmail, Yahoo mail, Outlook, Thunderbird and other email software each have their own quirks. RED (Responsive Email Designer) has to produce code that works with all of them, so while you design one email, the code generated contains everything needed for all these different email programs.
2. When one of these companies make small tweaks to the way their software reads the html in the email, Coffeecup has to update the code generator for their software and make sure the new changes don't interfere with the way the other email apps display the emails.
That's why they have a subscription. (By the way, I don't work for Coffeecup.)
There is a workaround, btw. Create your email in RED.
1. If you export to html, you can edit the exported code in an HTML editor (Brackets, TextEdit, Notepad, CC HTML Editor, etc.) to remove the branded footer.
2. If you export to Web Form Builder (WFB):
a. Open Settings in WFB and go to Confirmation or Notification (whichever is appropriate).
b. Select the Email from the dropdown.
c. Click the pencil to edit and choose Edit Code. (Do NOT click Edit in Responsive Email Designer.)
d. The html code will appear in the window. You can remove the footer there, or copy/paste to your favorite HTML Editor, make the changes, then copy/paste back to the WFB window.
Hope that helps!
