     293[[=#FixSettingsMui]]
    294294'''Settings/MUI...'''
    295295     Opens the settings window for [[mui| MUI ]], where you can specify
     
    321321'''Scripts/Execute script...'''
    322322     Lets you select an [[rexx| ARexx ]] script and run it.

     327[[=#FixWriteText]]
     328=== Text menu ===
     329
     330
     331'''Text/New'''
     332     Clears any text to start a new message.
     333
     334
     335'''Text/Open...'''
     336     Opens an existing text file.
     337
     338
     339'''Text/Insert as >>  Plain'''
     340     Inserts a text file at the current cursor position.
     341
     342
     343'''Text/Insert as >>  Quoted'''
     344     Inserts a text file at the current cursor position, prefacing each
     345     line with the quote character (usually '''>''').
     346
     347
     348'''Text/Insert as >>  Alternate Quoted'''
     349     Inserts a text file at the current cursor position, prefacing each
     350     line with an alternate quote character (usually '''|''').
     351
     352[[=#FixTextInsertROT]]
     353'''Text/Insert as >>  ROT13 encoded'''
     354     Inserts a text file at the current cursor position and replaces
     355     each letter with the one 13 characters ahead on the alphabet,
     356     cycling back from Z to A (so A->M, B->N, M->A) as appropriate.
     357     This very simple code is used for example for indecent humour.
     358
     359
     360'''Text/Save as...'''
     361     Saves the current message (only the text part, without any header)
     362     to a file of your choice.
     363
     364
     365'''Text/Launch editor'''
     366     This lets you compose your message with your favourite editor as
     367     specified in the [[Configuration#FixWrite| Write ]] configuration.  Note that a few functions
     368     such as text styles and the [[Window write#FixGlossary| Glossary ]] may only be supported
     369     correctly in the internal editor.  Whenever you save in the
     370     external editor, the text in the internal editor is updated, due
     371     to the way the operating system interprets the file notification
     372     when you save the temporary file.
     373
     374[[=#FixWriteEdit]]
     375=== Edit menu ===

     388
     389
     390'''Edit/Paste as >>  Quoted'''
     391     Inserts the text on the clipboard at the current cursor position,
     392     prefacing each line with the quote character (usually '''>''').
     393
     394
     395'''Edit/Paste as >>  Alternate Quoted'''
     396     Inserts the text on the clipboard at the current cursor position,
     397     prefacing each line with the alternative quote character (usually
     398     '''|''').
     399
     400
     401'''Edit/Paste as >>  ROT13 encoded'''
     402     Inserts a text file at the current cursor position, applying ROT-13
     403     encoding (see also under [[#FixTextInsertROT| Text/Insert as/ROT13 encoded ]]).
     404
     405
     406'''Edit/Undo'''
     407     Undoes the last change made in the editor.
     408
     409
     410'''Edit/Redo'''
     411     Restores the change just undone with 'Edit/Undo'.
     412
     413
     414'''Edit/Glossary'''
     415     Opens the [[Window write#FixGlossary| Glossary ]] window.
     416
     417
     418'''Edit/Textstyle >>  Bold'''
     419     Toggles bold type on or off for a marked block or for text entered
     420     subsequently.  In the resulting message, text in bold type is
     421     delimited by asterisks, thus: bold -> *bold*
     422
     423
     424'''Edit/Textstyle >>  Italic'''
     425     Toggles italic type on or off for a marked block or for text
     426     entered subsequently.  In the resulting message, text in italics
     427     is delimited by slashes, thus: italic -> /italic/
     428
     429
     430'''Edit/Textstyle >>  Underlined'''
     431     Toggles underlining on or off for a marked block or for text
     432     entered subsequently.  In the resulting message, underlined text is
     433     delimited by underline characters, thus: underline -> _underline_
     434
     435
     436'''Edit/Textstyle >>  Alternative color'''
     437     Toggles colored type on or off for a marked block or for text
     438     entered subsequently.  The color is defined in the
     439     [[Configuration#FixRead| Read configuration ]].  In the resulting message, the colored text
     440     is delimited by hash signs, thus: color -> #color#
     441
     442
     443'''Edit/Separators >>  Thin | Thick'''
     444     Inserts a separator at the current cursor position.  This is done by
     445     inserting an extra line containing either '''<sb>''' or '''<tsb>'''.  YAM and
     446     other (MUI-) mail programs interpret this character sequence as a
     447     separator.
     448
     449
     450'''Edit/Emoticons >>  Happy | Indifferent | Sad/angry | Ironic'''
     451     Inserts a 'smiley' at the current cursor position.  Smilies express
     452     your feelings about the topic and compensate for the loss of
     453     intonation when expressing yourself in writing rather than speech
     454     (see also [[What is e-mail#FixNetiquette| E-Mail Netiquette ]]).
     455
     456
     457'''Edit/Type and spell'''
     458     Switches automatic spellchecking on or off.  Spellchecking is a
     459     function of the Texteditor class and must be configured in
     460     [[#FixSettingsMui| Settings/MUI ]].  It must use an external program like '''AlphaSpell'''.
     461
     462     If you type in a word which is not in the dictionary, the screen
     463     flashes (and you will get an audible signal, too, if you have set
     464     this up in your Workbench Sound preferences).  Use <Amiga-Help>
     465     to get a list of suggestions for the correct spelling.
     466
     467
     468[[=#FixWriteAttachments]]
     469=== Attachments menu ===
     470
     471
     472'''Attachments/Add file...'''
     473     Equivalent to the [Add file] button in the [[Window write#FixAttachmentSheet| Attachments ]] sheet.
     474
     475
     476'''Attachments/Add clipboard'''
     477     Adds the contents of the clipboard as an attachment to your
     478     message, so you can easily include documents from other
     479     applications.
     480
     481
     482'''Attachments/Add PGP key'''
     483     Use this to attach your [[What is e-mail#FixPgp| public PGP key ]] to the message.
     484     The recipient can add this to his "keyring" and will then
     485     be able to send you messages signed and/or encrypted with PGP.
