I am sorry that I am just a user and not a programmer. Please excuse me if you have answered this question. I want to be able to create the QuickText templates with the same flexibility as Thunderbird (i.e. - font size and type control, bullets, indents, etc.).

I want to be able to be able to make a line in my signature block bold. I want to be able to have canned "reply" templates that are constructed with the same control as if I were typing in Thunderbird.

I would gladly convert to PRO if this was in PRO.

Here is the solution for all of us. The "coders" can't seem to be able to talk to us lowlife about how to create HTML, but don't be afraid -- it is very easy. I just this minute figured it out. Watch:

Step 1: When you create a template you have to set the "Insert as" switch to "HTML".
Step 2: Then you NEED to put HTML codes to make your text work. Examples:

To create bold text, put <b> at the beginning and </b> at the end.
To create itallic text, put <i> at the beginning and </i> at the end.

You need to put <br> at the end of every line to make it "return" to a new line.

To make a list using lower case letters, use:

<ol type="a">
<li>List item 1</li>
<li>List item 2</li>
<li>List item 3</li>
<li>List item 4</li>
</ol>

To change color, use:
<font color="#ff0000">This is where you put your words.</font>

I am still learning the numbers for colors.

And now the website that has the free chart of these and all the other HTML codes is:

http://www.web-source.net/html_codes_chart.htm

Once you break the ice and do the first one, it is like you stepped into a new world.

IMPORTANT: IF WHEN YOU EVOKE YOUR TEXT IT COMES OUT LOOKING LIKE html CODE INSTEAD OF BOLD, ITALLIC, A LIST, ETC., IT IS BECAUSE YOU DID NOT SET THE "insert as" SWITCH TO "html."

Good luck.

Hi Teltrab, good tutorial - perfect for a simple orientation of the uninitiated. im sure others will appreciate your effort.
regarding colours, I recommend
