|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:
<li>List item 1</li>
<li>List item 2</li>
<li>List item 3</li>
<li>List item 4</li>
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:
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."
