[Clip] Message box defaults...
- I have several questions about message boxes:
1. Can we change the default size (height and width) of message boxes
generated from clips?
2. Can we change the font size that displays in the boxes?
3. Is there a way of formatting a web URL inside other text so that we
can double-click on the text to launch the web site (similar to what we
see on a web page?)
These questions arose when I created a message box clip from which I
can launch most-oft used web addresses. I started out formatting the
box with just the URLs. Then I added descriptive headings to the left
of each URL to make the list easier to read. I would like to change the
default size (height and width) of the box so I don't have to scroll
horizontally or vertically to see all of the text.
Thanks for the help.

create your "Own Personal Home Page" which can be stored on your own
machine and be automatically loaded when you start your Browser. It can
have ALL you favorite links, called whatever you like and in any order you
want. That way you can have everything you are asking for! If you have any
questions about this contact me by private email.

- Hi Kent,
While I'm waiting for my inbound mail to work I'll answer this -
hope it was answered already.

The command below is all one line to ^!Info.
^!SetWizardTitle ~ Add a lot of text or spaces in the Title forcing the width of the window out ~
^!Info Wide box only goes about 3/4 window width.
> 2. Can we change the font size that displays in the boxes?In the Info boxes you can. Right click in one. Some of the
other dialogs you can also like Find and Replace. Right click in
the input fields.

One is simply make an html file with all your links in it and
make it your start page in your browser so it will load when you
start your browser as Charles was saying. (Worth repeating though, because it is the simpliest.) You can use Eric's url
Another is use the ^!Url command and put your clips into a
Clipbook. There is a Library at http://www.sureword.com/notetab
on my Libraries page that will make a Library out of an IE
Favorites folder or Netscape Bookmark.htm. (They might be on the
Snatch-A-clip page.) There is also a Library that uses
OnClipboardChange to format text and links in about six different
formats there. It is called NoteBoards. One of the formats is
the ^!Url format so you can just copy it and "Add from Clipboard"
and be done with it. I have not used my browser favorites for
many moons since I just launch from NoteTab.
Finally, you can use the maximize button for this and/or H=number
of rows displayed. This only does http type addresses. You will
need to change it a bit if you need ftp, etc.
^!Set %Site%=^?[(H=25)Where do you want to go today?==NoteTab's Home Page^=www.notetab.com|Site 1^=www...|Site 2^=www...|Site 3^=www...|Site 4^=www...|Site 5^=www...|Site 6^=www...|NetCaptor^=www.netcaptor.com|NoteTabbers Assistant Page^=www.sureword.com/notetab]
A clip can be built that would add urls to the above also.
Now, if you downloaded NetCaptor you put your Url's into a
checkbox list and using the Array command you could open multiple
sites all in Tabs like NoteTab. :) I have one built now to
search multiple search engines like that.

- Hi Kent,
While I'm waiting for my inbound mail to work... and while I am
still waiting I was adding something to the post before this and
my auto mail started checking mail. It sent my open post that I
was typing in. haha - it just vanished and got sent. I was at
(Worth repeating though, because it is the simpliest.) You can
use Eric's CaptureLinks to add to your start page. There is also
one in my Noteboards.
