Outlook for Mac adds improved signature editor in Insider Fast

Published Mar 19 2018 11:17 AM 15.9K Views

We're excited to introduce an updated and improved signature editing experience for our Insider Fast users starting in version 16.12 (180314).

 

As before, to open the signature editor, navigate to Outlook > Preferences > Signatures, and either create a new signature (by clicking on the + button) or edit an existing one (by clicking on the Edit button).

 

With this update you will now be presented with a larger compose window -- with a variety of formatting controls as well as the ability to insert images, links, and tables -- to help you fine tune your signature exactly to your liking! You can also add alt text to images directly in the editor.
