Bullets and tiny text
Authored by: interlard on Nov 17, '05 09:50:35PM

timgaden, I LOVE YOU. This is freaking perfect! Now I can read everyone's emails, AND my own. I can't believe I had to apply a hack just to make email easy to read. Apple, what are you THINKING??

Time, I'm going to be really helpful to 10 people tomorrow. They in turn will be really really nice to 10 other people. And so on. Eventually the wave of goodwill should get back to you. Oh wait, I live in New won't get far.

OK, so how do I get bullets in emails? Where's the toolbar button for that? C'mon Apple, M$ gave us this DECADES ago. ;-)

I assume you want to do something more sophisticated with bullets in your emails than simply inserting bullet characters by typing option-8. But in case you're not...

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have been trying to figure out how to avoid cut and paste for bullets in mail. A real help.

One thing I hope someone can help with --- when I use the option/8 combo, the font style "jumps" to monaco. I noticed it does this with any option key combo when I am typing an email. I can highlight the text and revert back to my preferred font (which obviously is not monaco) but this makes it more time consuming. I use bullets alot. Any ideas on why -- &/or how to stop this "reverse default setting"?
