    "All goes fine but I do not know how to copy my email address."

    I don't think it's possible in Opera (with Opera's standard functions).
    You can't use a results of search in Opera's action.

  • I still don't know why you're using an external program to do things Opera does itself ...

  • Hi sgunhouse,

    as I do not know how I am to be able to:

    During compose in M2

    look up + select + copy ===> From:

    to copy " " only, without the from.

    As I am tyring to do this so that I can assign sequences command to context menu so that it can be use for lot of things in my situation. ( assign many different function of context menu during compose in M2 )


  • Where are you planning to use the address?

    I was especially referring to you use of nircmd.exe to send tab characters. You could just use the function assigned to tab directly.

  • @sgunhouse

    There is no way to emulate sending "Enter" with built-in commands(functions) in Opera, especially in the text field and in the most of a UI elements. But Insert, "x" (where x - tab character inserted from the text editor) should work.

  • Hi sgunhouse,

    thanks for the time.

    I was making few different context menu about :

    When compose complete in M2., right click a context menu,

    Look up in mail body, the people in the From: and in the cc:

    Copy them & paste back to the "To:" and "cc:" respectively. ( I can assigned the Focus widget & dy, 200...etc. )

    Reply all is not apply to the above due to some reason so that I need to do above steps in order to copy the mail sender addresses.

    in simple, I want a right click to a context menu M2 will copy sender@myemail@mail , paste to the "to:" . I know delay, 200 & copy the to the "cc:".

    range next line not okay as some of the email with empty lines differently so that why I need M2 to spot right at the mail ( ) and ( )

    Thank you very much.

  • HI stng,

    In Compose mode, if after I preformed the "Find" function & click the default button.

    The Highighted item " From: " is in Green High-lighted.

    Is there way I am able to go to the next word ? * range next word...etc.

    I am doing most of the time answer email to different people ( many of them ) but some reason I am not using reply all.

    Like below, I need to copy the people from the "to" or the "cc:"
