If you fancy a change and want to customise the Spindle Processor window, there are a handful of themes available.
1. Browse to the installation directory of Spindle Professional. By default, this path is C:\Program Files (x86)\Draycir\Spindle Professional\.
2. Search the folder Skin Selector.exe and start it up.
3. Enable skinning framework and choose your theme. The right hand side of the window are example controls to display what the theme looks like with different elements in a window.
Hyperlinked images are used in many organisations to promote their business by including a graphic signature. When clicked, this signature will direct the viewer to a webpage. For example, Draycir's signature would direct recipients to the Draycir homepage.
Obtaining the Image URL and Hyperlink Address
Spindle Professional does not accommodate copying and pasting of images in the HTML message window. To insert an image, an image URL is required. Image URLs (web address to specify where it's stored) are used by computers to fetch images stored on public facing servers all around the globe. To obtain an image URL, use this article to guide you. http://www.wikihow.com/Get-the-URL-for-Pictures
The image must be hosted on a public facing server for Spindle to search and retrieve.
In this article, I'll be using the Draycir Logo obtained from the Draycir webpage. www.draycir.com
1. I opened the image in a new tab as suggested by WikiHow.
2. A new tab opened and the image address was in the address bar. I copied this.
Inserting the hyperlinked image in the email body
1. Open up Spindle Professional > Select the automation being used > Operation > Email settings > Message Tab > HTML
2. Click on insert image (highlighted by the red outline)
3. Insert the image URL in the Image URL field and give the image a description and title. Note, Spindle could not successfully retrieve the image. This is because the image is in .svg format. We need it in a supported format so I changed the extension to .png.
4. Click update. Thereafter, right-click > Insert/Edit link and insert the hyperlink you want the image to direct to.
6. Click insert. The window will ask you if you want to insert a http:// prefix. Click yes to allow it and save the updated HTML email body. Thereafter, click apply.
