Use Mouse Gesture to select font in QUICK WAY

  • Hi there,

    I am in , standard_mouse.ini

    [Compose Window]

    GestureUp, GestureDown=Focus Next widget & Delay, 100 & Next item & Next item & blah..blah..blah..Next item

    It just not let me select my desire fonts of ' Verdana '

    Is there anything I need to do further ?

    Problem is that, Opera is not all the time ( most of the time, actually ) not using my selected font ' Verdana ' even though I set it correctly in Preference, Fonts, compose HTML......

    Thank you
    edmond.

    Try this:

    [Compose Window]

    FlipBack = Focus previous widget & Focus next widget & Next item & Next item ...(NOTE: select your font with required number of "Next item" commands)... Next item & delay,100 & Focus next widget

    How to use: put cursor at the message body, hold right mouse button and press left mouse button.

  • Thanks stng,

    so that I could do only Next item & Next item....and so on.......... until the desire fonts selected.

    No command is available if to call direct the fonts name ? i.e. Time News Roman.

    i.e. xx=Focus previous widget & Focus next widget & Time News Roman & delay , 100 & Focus next widget

  • @emc

    There is "Choose font" internal command, but, seems, it doesn't work in Compose window.

    But you can use NirCMD utility:

    FlipBack=Focus previous widget & Focus next widget & delay,1000 & Execute program, "c:\windows\nircmd.exe","sendkeypress Shift+v e" & Delay,100 & Focus next widget

    *Where is the "Execute program, "c:\windows\nircmd.exe","sendkeypress Shift+v e"" selects Verdana font.

    P.S.: I think that custom keyboard shortcut (alt+v, for an example) would be better choice than mouse gesture.

  • Thanks stng,

    However, the downloaded file is not an installable .exe file.

    After I extract it, click it, nothing happen.................

    But thanks !

    1. Extract archive
    1. Right click on "Nircmd.exe" and choose "Run with Administrator"
    1. Press "Copy to Windows directory" button (in window with caption "NirCMD").
  • Hi Stng,

    NicCMD works ! ( Thanks again )

    It does highlight the Fonts widget & have select to other fonts.

    However, every time it highlights the fonts ' Ebrima '.

    Would there be any other setting to correct this ?

    I am using English version Opera v.11.50.

    Thank you

  • @emc

    To select "Verdana" font try this:

    Focus previous widget & Focus next widget & delay,1000 & Execute program, "c:\windows\nircmd.exe","sendkeypress v e" & Delay,500 & Focus next widget

    Just tested. It works!

    The command "Execute program, "c:\windows\nircmd.exe","sendkeypress v e" defines what font you want to select. For an example:

    "sendkeypress v e" - selects font with a name that beginning with "Ve" (font Verdana)

    "sendkeypress s y m b" - selects font with a name that beginning with "Symb" (e.g. font Symbol)

  • stng.............. :-)

    Bingo !

    Many thanks!

    Edmond.

  • stng , sorry..........

    If I am to continue to choose a smaller fonts size.

    It would be something like:

    Focus next widget..blah...blah..."Execute program, "c:\windows\nircmd.exe",

    then, snedkey of what ?

    ( in order to press the small font size icon once )

    Thank you!

    Edmond

  • as I tried the Focus to the 'smaller fonts' icon by using ' Focus next widget ' but apparently the ' smaller fonts ' icon is not consider as a widget.

    same thing, I also want to press once the ' remove formatting ' icon as well.

    Thank you
    edmond.

  • @emc

    If I am to continue to choose a smaller fonts size.

    You don't need nircmd to select smaller fonts.
    Use internal Opera's commands:

    Email Increase Text Size

    Email Decrease Text Size

    same thing, I also want to press once the ' remove formatting ' icon as well.

    Use command: Email Clear Formatting

  • Thank stng,

    If to choose a specific fonts sizes. ( i.e. 14 pt ) Do I need to use Nircmd ? Or there is Internal Opera's commands.

    Fonts color, How to choose BLACK FONTS COLOR using Opera's internal commands ?

    1. If to choose from SENDER ( I have several accounts ) , is there a quicker setting rather than the tricks of Focus Next Widget, Next item , Next item. ?

    Because Opera shows me sometime ( quite most of the time ) different sender accounts & is not fix, so that the tricks of Next item, Next item will not work correctly owning to this reason.

    Thank you
    Edmond.

  • And.......... If I am to ask Nicmd to expand the SENDER box in M2 ( so that I can click which account as sender )

    What is the command to Nicmd ?

    I tried several sendkey command which obvious not correct...............

    Thanks!
    Edmond.

    1. If to choose a specific fonts sizes. ( i.e. 14 pt ) Do I need to use Nircmd ? Or there is Internal Opera's commands.

    No, you don't need Nircmd to change font size. For an example, this macro choose "Small" font:

    Open Font Dialog & Delay,300 & Focus next widget & Next item & Next item & Next item & Click default button

    • The number of "Next item" commands defines size of the font.
    1. Fonts color, How to choose BLACK FONTS COLOR using Opera's internal commands ?

    "Email Set Color" internal command shows 'choose font' dialog. But then you need to use nircmd to emulate "tab", "down", "up", "left", "right", and "enter" keys pressings. Yes, it's possible with nircmd.

  • If to choose from SENDER ( I have several accounts ) , is there a quicker setting rather than the tricks of Focus Next Widget, Next item , Next item. ?

    I don't think so.

    Because Opera shows me sometime ( quite most of the time ) different sender accounts & is not fix, so that the tricks of Next item, Next item will not work correctly owning to this reason.

    Use "Go to start" command before "Focus Next Widget". E.g:

    "Go to start & Next widget & Next widget & Next widget" will chose third sender account from the beginning.

    And.......... If I am to ask Nicmd to expand the SENDER box in M2 ( so that I can click which account as sender )
    What is the command to Nicmd ?

    Use Opera's internal command "Show dropdown" (when "Sender" field is activated)

  • @emc
    To select "Verdana" font try this:

    Focus previous widget & Focus next widget & delay,1000 & Execute program, "c:\windows\nircmd.exe","sendkeypress v e" & Delay,500 & Focus next widget

    Just tested. It works!

    I am curious to your above to why you can made it work by jumping to Focus previous widget and jump again to Focus next widget?

    You already in that FONTS widget & you specially made a Focus next widget....... it still remain on the fonts widget I believe. Don't understand on the same Widget you made forcus previous firstly and then Focus next., but it works.

    Thank you
    Edmond.

  • I am curious to your above to why you can made it work by jumping to Focus previous widget and jump again to Focus next widget?

    Focus previous widget & Focus next widget - allows to focus on the Font selection menu.

    Focus previous widget (in the end of macros) returns focus on message body

    You can press "Tab" and "Shift+Tab" keyboard combinations manually to check how it's works.

  • Hi stng,

    What is the font name of ' wingdings 3' ?

    as I would like to have this "c:\windows\nircmd.exe","sendkeypress w" focus right away on wingdings 3 so that I can add:

    Delay, 20 & Next item &

    Delay, 20 & Next item &

    Delay, 20 & Next item &

    Delay, 20 & Next item &

    Because, my native fonts are a few below wingding 3.

    Also, do you thank I can ask nicmd to target right to my native language ? ( Chinese : 標楷體 )

    Thank you !
    Edmond.

    This for choosing second font after font that beginning with "Win".

    Also, do you thank I can ask nicmd to target right to my native language ? ( Chinese : 標楷體 )

    No, i don't think so. You need to rename font (or reinstall it with english name).

    Thank you ! Edmond. BOLD LETTER in opera internal command is ?? Thankssssssssssss !

    Try: "Email Toggle Bold"
