how to edit HTML directly?

Is there any way to edit the code directly from within Freeway Express? I cannot find any method to do so.

No, not in Express or in Pro. Freeway generates HTML code based off your design, you’ll need to use a Text editor (a free one is TextWrangler) or you can open up the files in Dreamweaver.

The short answer is no, you can’t do it.

Hi Eilert,
Not directly using the application. You can, however, use the free Source Code
Snooper action (FreewayActions.com | Source Code Snooper) to edit the
code the application creates directly in the Freeway page.
I’ve recently updated the action so you can use it in Freeway Express as well as
Pro.
Regards,
Tim.

Tim’s Source Code Snooper is a deeply impressive tool, but it should
be said that this should be kept as an absolute last resort, and
definitely not turned to until you have a complete understanding of
all the other ways of modifying Freeway’s output. It locks out
elements from the intended visual design control in the Freeway
layout environment, so it is a step backwards as well as forwards.
Which means you’ll find yourself doing the splits!

Seriously though, if you think you have a reason for using Source
Code Snooper, please check with the people here first in case someone
can suggest a less heavy-handed solution.

(No offence meant Tim! I am actually glad to hear that it has been updated. :slight_smile:

I agree, Its better to try create and insert HTML where you need it,
rather than edit after fact.

Use Source Code Snooper as a lest resort.

None taken Keith (…pass the hankie). :slight_smile:
I’ve always wanted to find a way to merge the raw code in the Source Code
Snooper action with the tag stream Freeway generates. I spent some time with
this a while ago and while it worked for simple changes anything more just
broke down and crashed pretty badly. Trying to do a diff between the code
blocks and merging the output just isn’t something you can easily do in an
action!
I’ll dig out what I had and see if the wisdom of time has provided me with any
solutions for this.
All the best,
Tim.
