I am using Evolution 2.22 in Ubuntu 8.04 and I have downloaded the plugin as you suggested but it does not work for me following your above instructions. Could you please help me?
You said to "Feed any e-mail there and it will appear in the “Reply with template” menu when you right-click on an e-mail."
I don't know exactly what you mean by "Feed any email there" but I copied an email that I needed replied to the templates directory and right clicked on the message and I didn't get the option to reply with template. Thank you.
I'm currently using Ubuntu 8.10 with Evolution 2.24.2 and it still works for me (but honestly I couldn't say if it's been upgraded succesfully or if it's a purely integrated plugin right now).
You are seeing the "Templates" directory, right?
Then you should be able to right-click on a message in the list view and see a "Template" option in the menu that opens up (in my French-based interface it says "Modèles >", just after "Convert to task"). Still nothing?
Hi Lex, for some reason, the people higher above disabled this feature, reporting it was generating faults. We don't have the control on that part. However, the .deb we are attaching to this post *should* still work with the current version of evolution. Now I'm not sure how it's going to deal with two plugins having the same name, but I'll leave that for you to try. I think you can find the thread about this in the gnome project's bugzilla.
I actually found this searching for Quicktext for Evolution since I am currently using TB with the Quicktext plugin. I agree that it is far more advanced, but 2 things I would like to see in this plugin would be:
1) I would like to have the option to leave the original message intact. That's generally what "replying" is.
2) I'm not sure if I have it misconfigured or what, but my template has HTML in it, but when replying with a template, it is converted to plain text. HTML templates should be inserted as HTML and plain text templates should be inserted as plain text.
Other than this, good plugin.
