    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 === 
     376 
     377 
     378'''Edit/Cut''' 
     379     Cuts the marked text and saves it to the clipboard. 
     380

     385 
     386'''Edit/Paste''' 
     387     Inserts the text on the clipboard at the current cursor position. 
     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.
