hello,

like the new Outlook and the new signature editor... but

SVG support?

Base64 support?

booth yes if you use a trick and not the build in editor...

also the resulting .olk15Signature can not be changed or modified in a editor... after safe it get deleted by Outlook...

So i'm on Mac OS and found that if you use a AppleScript to make the signature than you can use base64 images without that Outlook makes png from it...

all other solutions doesn't work ... i've bought also HTML email signature - Outlook... -> doesn't work!

it makes png from every image ... not good.... like Outlook does too if you import or drag a SVG in your signature window and safe it... so no base64 nor svg support in editor direct... but if you use Apple Script it works and you can see that Outlook supports base64 images and external links to signatures too...

 

well here is the script that fixes the issues...

#!/usr/bin/osascript

-- To fix error with Outlook 2016 HTML signature images showing up as attachments
-- Ref: http://mydesignpad.com/how-to-create-an-attractive-html-email-signature-for-microsoft-outlook-2016-for-mac/#comment-36065

-- To use, add your signature name (under `name`) and signature (under `content`) and paste and run this code in Script Editor

tell application id "com.microsoft.Outlook"
	make new signature with properties {name:\"Red Dot\", content:\"<table><tr><td><img src=\"data&colon;image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAAAUA
AAAFCAYAAACNbyblAAAAHElEQVQI12P4//8/w38GIAXDIBKE0DHxgljNBAAO
9TXL0Y4OHwAAAABJRU5ErkJggg==\" alt="Red dot\"></td></tr></table>\"}
end tell

 so basically it's working.... also for Outlook iOS ... there you just have to sent you your html signature and paste the html code into the signature field... it works ... only tested base64 and html formatting... 

Now it would be great to give the signature editor possibility to import and use base64 & SVG support and also use correct html format to make signatures that work...

@Outlook Team.... plz plz give us support for SVG & Base64 ... we are in 2020 ... ! no need for bitmap images anymore...

thx

M.
