Quicktext

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I wrongly reported that it does not work, but it was my mistake - I was using a patched version from back when we had the same kind of problem once again - in 2015. The new version does work (Thank you a lot :rkent)

Too bad this plugin is not developed any longer. I would be happy to buy the pro version or maybe sponsor the merging of the two. RKent? Anybody?

===== TUTORIAL FOR TB 38 ON MAC OSX, LINUX ====

This is a great addon, I use it all the time and have about 30 templates in 5 categories.

Here is a little script to solve the problem with encoding on latest TB while waiting for the author to fix it (hopefully!).
Just run this ONLY ONCE each time after you modify your templates in Quicktext. If you already have broken templates, run this script while Thunderbird is NOT running. Everything should be OK when you start it again!

PLEASE NOTE: you have to change the Thunderbird profile folder on line 1. Simple instructions: copy the following text into your text editor, put the correct path to your TB profile then copy the whole thing and paste it in Terminal.

cd "~/Library/Thunderbird/Profiles/7saor6vs.default/quicktext/"
echo -ne 'xFFxFE' > templates.new
cat templates.xml >> templates.new
rm templates.xml
mv templates.new templates.xml

Alternative for Mac users: use this little Autimator app: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/79938589/fix%20quicktext.app.zip
But you still have to edit it with Automator and replace with the correct Thunderbird profile folder.
