=== Introduction ===
Do you need a new paper cutter for your school or workplace? If so, you are going to need to recognize ways to select the right trimmer for your needs. Here is what you need to do:
+
  
Look into the cutting capacity. The trimmer's cutting capacity is definitely something you need to be aware of. The cutting capability will certainly depend on the sort of cutter. For instance, a rotary trimmer can typically only cut a few sheets at a time while a stack cutter can ram through hundreds of sheets quickly. You must choose a cutter that can easily cut a really good amount of sheets at once.
+
Templates are used in composition windows, and act as a model for emails.
 +
Templates can be filled with static text and dynamic parts, such as the
 +
original sender's name ("Dear %N, ..."), the date, etc. When applying a
 +
template, the dynamic fields will be replaced with the relevant values. You
 +
can configure templates via the Tools menu.
  
Do you require to cut cardstock? If you're anticipating making use of cardstock or additional thicker kinds of paper, you will certainly want to make certain that your cutter can easily manage it. A guillotine cutter is a terrific option if you want to be able to deal with different stocks.
 
  
Look at how the machine is constructed. Because you're probably going to be utilizing your brand-new cutter a whole lot, you need to choose one that is durably built. If a trimmer features wooden and metal parts, you can easily rely on it being tough enough for regular usage. While cutters with a whole lot of plastic parts can easily be more economical, they're simply not as durable. You could wind up having to change it faster than you would certainly like.
+
=== Usage ===
  
Make sure the cutter is safe to use. Whether you pick a rotating trimmer, guillotine cutter, or stack cutter, there's no doubt about it: these machines can easily be unsafe, especially if they're used inappropriately. Thus, you'll need to make sure the cutter has good security features. Some features to try to find consist of a finger guard and blade latch (for guillotine cutters). Several rotating trimmers have blades that are encased in housing to keep your fingers safe. And a whole lot of stack cutters need two-handed operation. Many of the more advanced trimmers have optical eyes that can easily detect when your hands are too close to the blade. If this happens, the cutter will not work. Even, no matter what safety characteristics your cutter has, you need to exercise caution when using it. Kids must even be carefully monitored if you want your pupils to make use of the cutter. Whatever you do, be careful!
+
When applying a template, you will be asked to 'Insert' or 'Replace', the
 +
difference between replacing and inserting is only concerned with the message
 +
body. 'Replace' will replace the current composition window message body
 +
with the body defined in the template, clearing it if the template body is
 +
empty. 'Insert' will insert the template's body, if set, at the current
 +
cursor position.
  
Take into consideration brand. A great deal of business create paper cutters and you might even recognize some of the names such as GBC, Swingline, and Fellowes. Lesser recognized names include Dahle, Premier, and Foster Keencut. All of these business make outstanding cutters that are worth checking into and most of the trimmers have great guarantees.
+
Whether you choose to Insert or Replace, any To, Cc or Bcc field that is
 +
defined in the template will be appended to the compose window's recipients
 +
list. If it is defined, the template's Subject will always replace the
 +
compose window's Subject.
  
Stick to your finances. Finally, there are excellent paper cutters readily available at every cost point. Stick to your finances so you can get the cutter you require without breaking the bank.
+
Symbols can be used in all parts of the templates and will be substituted
 +
with their respective dynamic value if possible, otherwise no value will
 +
be used. This often makes more sense if you apply a template when a replying
 +
or forwarding. There is no restriction on which symbols can be used in template
 +
parts, even if inserting the body (%M or %Q) may make no sense in common
 +
situations.
  
Selecting the ideal paper cutter doesn't need to be tough. Granted there are an amount of things you require to think of and you require to inspect your possible tool to make sure it's appropriate for you, however it's easy. Begin searching for your paper shredder today.

When applying a template, the body is processed first, then the To, Cc, Bcc and
 +
Subject fields follow.

This is useful when multiple email addresses with the same domain
 +
(e.g. sales@domain.com info@domain.com admin@domain.com) are stored

in a single folder. If, when replying, you want to have the "From:"
 +
field in the compose window automatically populated with the "To:"
 +
address from the mail being replied to:
 +
 
 +
# Select the folder Properties => Templates => Reply
 +
# Check "Use templates when replying to messages" box
 +
# Put something like the following in the "From" box:
 +
<code>
 +
|p{echo -n `echo '%t%c'|grep -o '[a-zA-Z0-9]*@domain.com'`}
 +
</code>
 +
 
 +
This works if the address is in the "To:" or "Cc:" fields, but will leave a
 +
blank "From:" if the message was sent "Bcc:".
 +
The solution is also only valid on Unix/Linux platforms.

Introduction

Templates are used in composition windows, and act as a model for emails. Templates can be filled with static text and dynamic parts, such as the original sender's name ("Dear %N, ..."), the date, etc. When applying a template, the dynamic fields will be replaced with the relevant values. You can configure templates via the Tools menu.


Usage

When applying a template, you will be asked to 'Insert' or 'Replace', the difference between replacing and inserting is only concerned with the message body. 'Replace' will replace the current composition window message body with the body defined in the template, clearing it if the template body is empty. 'Insert' will insert the template's body, if set, at the current cursor position.

Whether you choose to Insert or Replace, any To, Cc or Bcc field that is defined in the template will be appended to the compose window's recipients list. If it is defined, the template's Subject will always replace the compose window's Subject.

Symbols can be used in all parts of the templates and will be substituted with their respective dynamic value if possible, otherwise no value will be used. This often makes more sense if you apply a template when a replying or forwarding. There is no restriction on which symbols can be used in template parts, even if inserting the body (%M or %Q) may make no sense in common situations.

When applying a template, the body is processed first, then the To, Cc, Bcc and Subject fields follow.

%Q

Keep original "To:" in the compose "From:" field when replying :

This is useful when multiple email addresses with the same domain (e.g. sales@domain.com info@domain.com admin@domain.com) are stored in a single folder. If, when replying, you want to have the "From:" field in the compose window automatically populated with the "To:" address from the mail being replied to:

  1. Select the folder Properties => Templates => Reply
  2. Check "Use templates when replying to messages" box
  3. Put something like the following in the "From" box:

|p{echo -n `echo '%t%c'|grep -o '[a-zA-Z0-9]*@domain.com'`}

This works if the address is in the "To:" or "Cc:" fields, but will leave a blank "From:" if the message was sent "Bcc:". The solution is also only valid on Unix/Linux platforms.
