At the moment we are creating artwork in Word and saving it as an HTML file. Opening up a new email, clicking insert on menu>clicking ‘File’>Selecting HTML file and choosing insert as text. The word document is then embedded into the email and we can create HTML links from there.
The problem with this method is we are limited to what we can create visually in Word. The artwork just does not look professional enough and we find that sometimes the headers or footers do not appear or do not stay in their correct position.
What I would like to do is to be able to start in Adobe InDesign (the graphics package we use). So far I have been able to create artwork in InDesign and create buttons and hyperlinks in InDesign>Export it as a pdf, maintaining the hyperlinks>Save as HTML document>Open new email>Insert HTML file choosing insert as text.
The problem with this method is that the images move about, the text is all different sizes, but on the plus side, the hyperlinks have been retained. So I am almost there, but not quite. Can anyone suggest what I need to do to get the design to display 'correctly' in Outlook.
