A Fix for Google’s GMail HTML Signatures Not Showing up in your Settings

    So Google hasn’t ironed all the kinks out yet for their help and support regarding the newly rolled out HTML Signatures, as this simple fix alluded the Google Support team for a week.

    If you’re having trouble finding out why your GMail won’t show an HTML signature, try this:

    Switch the Email Composer to Rich Formatting, instead of Plain Text.
    1. Click compose mail
    2. Click on “Rich formatting” (under Subject and just over the message textbox)
    3. Go back to settings (no actual message has to be created, this is just to change that setting).

    Why this isn’t simpler in the settings, I don’t know.

      Doesn’t work!!

      • Stu, unfortunately this is just one fix for HTML signatures. There are a lot of other reasons why it may not be working, and your best bet is to browse the Google Forums for other answers if this didn’t work for you.

    • Thank you SO SO SO much. This worked perfectly and was driving me nuts. You rock!

      Hi Thanks very much for this. My account was already in rich text but I changed it to plain text and then back again and it worked.

    • Love

      Thankyou! Took ages to find this really simple piece of advice.

      I think just reading this post fixed the problem somehow.
