Can't save format

Post by muppet » Sun Jan 31, 2016 8:41 am

I am using Windows and tried this macro on Chrome, FF and IE.
I downloaded iM last night so it's a new version.

iM changes the source code when I do a 'SAVEAS', compared to when I manually do a 'file' -> 'saveas' -> 'web page html only' in Firefox. It's definitely different.

How can I make the iMacros 'saveas' be the same as my manual FF save?

My iMacros code is:

URL GOTO=http://www.webpage
SAVEAS TYPE=HTM FOLDER=C:\xampp\htdocs FILE=name.htm

I think you forgot the " L " from the html

Your sintax "SAVEAS TYPE=HTM FOLDER=C:\xampp\htdocs FILE=name.htm"
Sintax corected "SAVEAS TYPE=HTM FOLDER=C:\xampp\htdocs FILE=name.html"
