Title: Format > Style menu
Post by Komori Kou on May 30th, 2016, 1:32am

I want to extend menu "Format>Style(>Highlight)".

Is it possible to add more menu items and assign favorite colors to them?

Or,

Is it possible to set colors of text or text highlight as favorite colors with a certain operation like Quickstamp?

I've seen no documentation to suggest the colour or highlight of a text selection can be altered via action code (including stamps/quickstamp); $TextColor affects all of a $Text so is not appropriate.

Also I don't believe the v6 menus are extensible/customisable by design by the Tinderbox user. However, some users employ utilities like Keyboard Maestro to set up shortcuts to apply existing menu-accessible options that don't have shortcuts defined by the app.

My main aim is to format text with favorite colors other than predefined one.

OK. modifying the menu seems to be impossible, so I will use another text editor and copy&paste back into TB window.

Thanks.

if you are Keyboard Maestro user, this is easy. You need to define a small macro. Here you have a green highlighter.

Hi Desalegn

I haven't known Keyboard Maestro can apply style to clipboard.

I have been using other macro program, but I will transfer to Keyboard Maestro on this occasion.

Thanks!
