When I paste my HTML signature into Gmail, it shows in Plain Text, how do I change it to HTML?

If you paste your HTML signature into Gmail and it shows it as plain text, here is how to fix it, so that it shows as HTML or Rich Text.

Compose a new email

When composing an email, click on the down arrow icon, next to the trash can icon in the right bottom hand corner of the compose window, see image.

You should see a tick next to the option "Plain Text". You need to uncheck the option "Plain Text" by clicking on it.

Now you need to re-install your signature into Gmail. Open your HTML signature in a browser or if you are using Email Signature Rescue, open your signature in full screen preview while in edit mode.

Use Ctrl + A (PC) or Command + A (Mac) to highlight all of the signature.

Use Ctrl + C (PC) or Command + C (Mac) to copy all of the signature.

Use Ctrl + V (PC) or Command + V (Mac) to paste the HTML signature into Gmail's signature settings. Press save.

When you paste your signature into the signature box in Gmail's settings, you should now see your signature as Rich Text (HTML), rather than plain text. You should also see your signature as HTML when composing an email too.
