We have been busy improving Word To HTML to add in new features.

Choose your editor:

you could always choose between our default editor and TinyMCE but the option to switch was a bit hidden in the settings page. We have made this option easier by adding a toggle above the editor:

New feature: Try our new Visual Email Designer…

create HTML emails visually

We are pleased to launch our new Visual Email Designer! Creating HTML emails is one of the most common uses of our service, but we wanted to make the process easier and quicker.

Our new drag and drop HTML Email Editor lets you visually create your HTML emails. You can start from a blank template or customize one of our many built-in predesigned templates.

All the controls are visual, so it is super easy to use – you drag the section you need from the panel on the left and place it into your email design. You can add new columns, rows, images, videos buttons etc. to your layout and see the changes live.

Once you have the design ready, you can preview how it looks on desktop and mobile with our built-in preview tool. You can also send a test email to yourself to see how it looks in a live email account.

The Email Editor is free for all our Pro users. Give our new Visual Email Designer a try and discover how simple and powerful it is.

Guten Tag and Witaj – Word to HTML is now available in German and Polish…

Word to HTML has users from all over the World so we have decided to translate our service to better accommodate non-English speakers. The first two languages to be supported are German and Polish.

We have used human translators to ensure quality. You can switch language at any time by clicking the language option in the top right of the screen.

 

New feature: You can now easily style your HTML tables…

We have added a settings screen to let you easily style your tables. To use it all you have to do is click anywhere in your table. On the floating menu that comes up click the brush icon.

On the table styling screen, you can control all aspects of the table style like color, font, padding, border and table height and width.

 

 

Upload and convert PDF files to HTML fixed layout, responsive preview and other visual changes

In December 2019 we’ve added new feature to Upload & Convert PDF files to fixed HTML layout. Just enable HTML fixed option before uploading PDF file:

We’ve moved preview saved document option from save doc menu next to Save button (1) and added new feature to preview saved document in a responsive mode (2). You can see how your html looks on mobile, tablet or laptop.

We have changed how Download as PDF option works under Chrome browser. If you save your HTML and select Download as PDF from menu next to Save button then Word to HTML will open new browser tab in Chrome and you’ll be able to save your document to PDF via Chrome.

Also we have updated top links above Visual Editor like below. Auto Save option was moved and simplified (it’s enabled by default and Word to HTML will save your document every 5 minutes if there are any unsaved changes in HTML).

We have removed link to Old Editor, yet still you can access it here via following URL: https://wordtohtml.net/site/old-editor

Also if you’re a Pro user you can select old editor in Settings.

Introducing our new easier to use editor with Super Paste…

As we add more features we are aware that the editor has become overly complex and intimidating to some users. We want to make things as simple as possible for you so we have been hard at work creating a new editor experience that is easier to use but contains more powerful features than ever.

Here is the old editor:

Here is the new easier to use editor:

If you are thinking, hey where have all the options gone?? Don’t worry they are all still there. You just need to click the 3 dots to expand out the options:

If you prefer having all the options visible you can do this by changing Editor Type option in Settings:

Introducing Super Paste! (Pro users only)

A common request from users is to keep their formatting when they paste from Word or Excel. We are pleased to introduce Super Paste. Now when you paste from Word or Excel you will keep an option to keep your formatting or clean it up:

You can control the settings for the new editor my going to the settings page:

 

New cleanup controls

We have added the following new clean up options:

  • Empty attributes: Removes all empty or with whitespace attributes like id=”” or class=” “
  • Data attributes: removes all data attributes, for example in this code <li data-animal-type=”bird”>Owl</li> it would remove data-animal-type=”bird” to leave you with <li>Owl</li>
  • Indent: tidy up your HTML to make it easier to read
  • Compress: compresses your HTML to make your file size smaller

We also added a section for CSS classes to keep or remove.

We are keen to hear what you think of the new editor and the new features, so please do let us know: [email protected] or fill out our short feedback form.

New Word to HTML Feature: Easily Create Amazon Listing Descriptions…

We have made it easier for users to create descriptions for Amazon seller listings.

Amazon restricts the code you can use for listings so we have created a simplified version of the Visual Editor that will create code that is Amazon compatible.

To get started all you need to do is click the ‘Amazon Editor mode’ link above the Visual Editor:

 

You will notice that the toolbar icons switch to simplified controls:

 

Amazon has a limit of 2000 characters for the description field, our system will warn you if your text is over 2000 characters. We also have a character count tool in the bottom right of the Visual Editor that will help you keep track.

Once you have edited the text, copy the HTML from the HTML Editor box and paste it into the Amazon listing display field.

Do let us know what you think of this feature. We also have plans to add a custom editor for creating Ebay listings.

New Word To HTML feature: Templates to help you easily create HTML signatures and more…

Templates are the easy way for you to create the text you need fast. This feature is only for PRO users.

All you have to do is click the insert template icon from the menu:

Then select your template:

Once you have selected the template you can edit the content in the editor.

At the moment we just have templates for HTML signatures but if this feature is popular we will add more templates.

Please contact us if you have ideas for new templates.
