Hi there,

Can someone who uses the new quickext tell me how to do something I need done?

Normally I only send out text e-mails so I've never needed to do this, but in this case I want to put links under some of the words, & I can't figure out how even when I click on "html" in the settings.

In fact when I do that, the text comes out as a BLOB of text & removes the formatting :(

Can someone help?

I may also want to put my logo at the bottom of my signature & so I don't know how to do that either.

Thanks a ton :)

Can you create a simple html template button?

Try this:

* open compose window

* view > [check] quicktext i.e. show quicktext toolbar
* tools > quicktext i.e. open quicktext settings

* click add group button, type alpha next to "title:"
* select alpha on left side

* click add template button, type example next to "title:"
* type the following html in textbox

Code: Select all
<a href="http://www.mozillazine.org/">MozillaZine</a>

* select html next to "insert as:"

* click save button
* click close button

* click example button on quicktext toolbar

Thanks, my website coder helped me to do the html in the template. The blank lines were easy, I was just concerned about the links, but I could have just looked the code up. I just didn't understand I had to put the html right into the window. It's my fist time doing it.

Thanks
