Thanks to you and hsavage for all the help!
(My goodness, I sure have a *lot* of clips using ^!Keyboard. *Cringe*. :)
- How do you all use the following clip -- copy something from email to
Notetab, run the clip, then copy back into email?

web-based email) can end up mangling quoting pretty badly. That clip
just "cleans it all up". Note that it reduces everything selected to
just one level of quotes, so if there are multiple levels, I then
select those blocks and press CTRL+Q to add another level of quotes as
many times as necessary.
Also -- and this is just a personal preference, YMMV -- I changed the
default NTP quote character '>' in the Options to have a space after
it, i.e. '> '.
- Hi Jelks, Sheri, and Harvey:
Thanks for your three-way discussion about this clip. I'm now using the final
version posted by Jelks on 8/7/2006.
My question: Where is the delay? I looked at both the commands (^$StrFormat
and ^$GetSelection$) in Help, but I don't see the introduction of any delay in

The 'delay' was discussed in reference to an earlier clip when using
^!Keyboard commands, as below from a previous email. In the 4th line
down is an entry '&1', in keyboard commands the '&' precedes a number
representing fractions of a second, in this case it's milliseconds, my
entry, '&1' represents 1 millisecond, '&500' represents a half second.
^!If ^$GetSelSize$ > 0 Skip

You're probably already be aware of this but I thought, just in case
I'll answer to explain.

Great help, and a very funny tag line. I still giggle when I picture the
