How to Make Mail Compose the Same in Different Version of Opera

  • I got 2 versions of Opera, version 11.52 and 12.16. The mail compose window in 11.52 is different from the one in 12.16, despite using the same skin in both versions. I want to get the mail compose window in 12.16 to look like the one in 11.52.

    Even tbough I'm using the same skin in both versions, it seems that both versions use different code or files that make the mail compose window look different. I was thinking about copying the file responsible for this in 11.52 and pasting it in 12.16. If this is possible, please tell me which is the file for this.

  • May not be a file ... click on the "Default Mail settings" button in the top right corner of the mail window - you will see options for whether the message pane is shown below the list (default in older versions of Opera) or to the right (default in later versions) ... which I think is probably what your question is about, but there are other options as well if you need them.

  • Hi sgunhouse, thanks for replying. I think youre confused. My question is about the Mail Compose window skin color, not the mail list. I'll clarify. In the Mail Compose window in version 11.52, the window skin is dark which is what I like. But the Mail Compose window skin in version 12.16 is white. Look below at the screenshot links.

    I want to make the Mail Compose window skin in 12.16 look dark like the one in 11.52. Both versions use the same Opera theme. Since both versions use the same theme, there must be a file in 11.52 that makes the Mail Compose version look different than the one in 12.16. Which file do I transfer from 11.52 to 12.16 so that the Mail Compose looks identical to 11.52? Or maybe theres a file in 12.16 that prevents the theme from making the Mail Compose skin dark?

  • At some point, some of the UI was changed to make use of YAML. If you look in the "UI" folder in the program files folder, you'll see dialogs.yml, dialogs.ini and widgets.yml. From what I remember, 11.52 didn't have these changes and adding the files from 12 to 11 won't do anything.

  • Hi, burnout. You mean, adding files from 11 to 12 wont do anything, not 12 too 11. Is there anything I can do?

    It won't help either way.

    Not that I know of.

  • Thats cool, burnout. Thanks anyway. But I'd like to know if you can help me with something thats bothering me. When I double click and open up mail in Drafts, Spam and Sent folder, the messages are truncated to half their size. Please look at the pic I linked below. How do I free up the space marked in red so messages are untruncated and reach the edge of the mail compose window?

    I'll be posting this question in the forum also. But if you can answer me here, that would be cool either way. Thanks!

    I see it and I automatically see new threads that have "Opera Mail - " prefixed in the thread title.

    But if you can answer me here, that would be cool either way

    That would be off-topic for this post, so it's good that you made a new post.
