Formatting the sent email

Hello,

 I would like to format the email's that are getting sent a little differently when it comes to a couple things.  First is the amount of spacing that is replaced by "." in the header.  Right now it looks like its about three or four lines in height.  Second would be in reference to textareas.  The outpu in the email insterts a couple line breaks after the textarea's label.  I understand where that comes in and how to change that, but how can I instert a line break prior to the label?  

Right now…

Label 1:        text

Label 2:

 

text text text

 

To me it just looks a little odd, I would like it to output like…

Label 1:       text

 

Label 2:

text texte text

 

Thank you,

Kahil

I just tested it and I get exactly what you describe as your preferred solution. Can you post your URL and add a temporary CC: check box so I can give it a try and see why your email is formatted the way it is?

Good point re: amount of spacing, I'll make it configurable in v4.8!

I wish I could but the site is on a private intranet…

If I could only figure out how to put a space between the output from other fields like text boxes, check boxes, etc and the textarea, multiline boxes (the ones typically for "message") I'd be happy.

 

Thank you!!

Another idea to consider as an option would be the choice of email format.  Let people choose if they want the output from a particular form to be in plain text or html.  If html, then you could throw some "themes" on there for them like you did for the form.

Just an idea…

Thanks

You can send me an example via email.

EDIT:  re: HTML emails, I thought about it, but since it's really just a "nice to have feature", I'll keep for a future release.
