hi there,

I am trying to edit signature file for MS Entourage.
The default entourage signature editor won't allow me to have a picture directly next to the text without pushing the text down to next line.

Therefore I am trying to edit the signature file manually. However, I cannot open the "Signature" file in any software. Does anyone know what software should I use to open it?

Any idea how to do this?

AFAIK, you can only edit the signature file in Entourage (or possibly Outlook if you're on a PC).

What version of entourage are you using?  I'm able to put a picture in my signature wherever I want it without worrying about it pushing the text down.

Hi

Thanks for the answer.
I guess I didn't express myself clearly.

I can create the signature with text, text + picture, picture with no issues.
However, I cannot organise the inserted picture the way I want it to be. I.e. Several lines of texts on the right hand side of the picture.
Imagine the entire logo takes line space 1, 2 and 3 on the left. It doesn't seems to be possible to have text on line 1, 2 and 3 against the inserted picture.

Hopefully this make sense.

BTW I am using 2008.

I'm not sure what you mean by "It doesn't seems to be possible to have text on line 1, 2 and 3 against the inserted picture."

However,
I'm able to move the image around and have it on the same line as text, or on any line without text as well.

You may want to make sure you have the image resized appropriately before putting it into entourage (use preview, if you don't have anything fancy).

When you put the image in, you should be able to copy and paste it, or drag and drop it just like any text in the signature.

Really?

My always pushes the text down.

Say if I have the space below with the 3 lines:

ABCTV services (ANZ) Pty. Limited
Phone 888888 fax: 9999999 mobile 96969696
Address abc street pyrmont arvin@abc.com

If I want to insert a picture to the left of these lines, it will still insert it, but the text will get push down to the third line next to the picture.
. The whole thing will look like below: (imagine the Pictureppp been a one picture logo)

Pictureppp
Pictureppp
Pictureppp ABCTV services.......(The three lines)

That's not normal and with Html it should be able to have the text around the text!

Your solution will never work.

Option 1 will make the logo too small to see.
Option 2 will make the text too big to read.

I was just asking if the signature file can be edit manuanlly outside of entourage.
