[Solved] Need to view HTML code

Postby electron642 » Thu Sep 10, 2015 9:51 pm

I need to copy & paste from an OO html document, but can't seem to view the html code. I've done this before, but now all I can see from the View pull-down are the "Print" and "Web" views. Can anyone get me past this speed bump?

Use Web view, but if you are doing serious HTML work use a dedicated HTML editor.

Web view doesn't show the actual embedded code. I'm using a template that I used a couple years ago that allows me to paste HTML onto a Web page. At that time there was a third item in the View menu that embedded all the HTML code so that it could be copied and pasted. Now, all I see when I select the "View" pull-down is Print and Web.

I've decided that I can't there from OO, so I downloaded Kompozer and solved the problem.
