Address AutoComplete

2009-08-11 Thread jb_lists_tb
Hello TB! Users,

Is  there a way to turn off Address Autocomplete of the To: field? The
risk  of  errors  is  quite  high,  particularly  since  the method of
selecting  the desired entry from the list (down arrow and then Enter)
is  different  from  that of most other autocomplete lists (down arrow
and tab).

Options | Preferences | Viewer/Editor | Message headers

select To: and press Edit. On the Editing tab, remove whichever
ticks you wish. The change will also apply to CC: and BCC: fields.

This will not affect the address history dropdown list, which is 
accessed via the double-down-chevrons button at the end of the address 
input field.


 The risk  of  errors  is  quite  high,


especially if you are including Input History in your list of
sources to autocomplete from - obsolete addresses, people you only had
occasion to contact once, previous mis-types...

I find the suggestions from AB sometimes useful but the autocomplete a
bit of a liability when I'm half asleep.

I've not encountered the down arrow and tab method myself (-;

Thank  you,  just what I was looking for.

Rather than make the address picking process completely manual (which
means opening the Addressbook and selecting the contact), I have
settled for displaying a list of suggestions from the default account
addressbook without autocompleting. It is the autocomplete that trips
me up!

For down-arrow, tab, I was thinking of the autocomplete in browser
(Firefox) fields, where you can select the entry by using the down
arrow to select the entry you want and using TAB to fill the field
with it. Enter there results in submitting a blank form!

Assuming the first entry on the list was blank. (-; 

I usually select those with the mouse - then sometimes end up changing
the selection by scrolling down the page using the scroll wheel!

Address Autocomplete List - Parked entries - How do I remove?

2008-12-14 Thread MFPA
Hi


There are several parked entries at the bottom of my Address
Autocomplete List in a new blank message in one of my accounts. These
are marked with the same parked symbol as identifies parked
messages. I cannot remember doing anything to create these parked
entries and can't work out how to edit or delete them. There are 13 of
these parked entries and only 3 contain current addresses. They only
feature in one account.

I would appreciate help with this, as some of the parked entries
contain obsolete addresses for current contacts and a couple are
deceased.

Click the blue parked icon to unpark them (or highlight and

Thanks a lot, Marek. I would never have guessed it was the Spacebar!

I'm sure I must have parked them accidentally - I have no recollection
of this feature and no idea why I would have intentionally parked most
of those entries. I like the feature.

Ahhh. I suppose it makes sense to put it here (its certainly more
flexible), but the Help file still refers to its old location. Thanks
for the pointer.

Address AutoComplete Option Location

2006-02-17 Thread Julian Beach (Lists)
Hello TB! Users,

Can anyone tell me where the Address AutoComplete option for the
Message Window now hides. It used to appear under
Options|Preferences|System, but it does not any longer. The latest
version appears to have reset my original settings (Addressboook only)
and I want to set it back.

On the subject of this, the Autocomplete drop down list does not seem
to work very intuitively. In most applications I can select the item I
want by using the down arrow key to select the item I want and then
use [TAB] to select it. In TB! this moves onto the next field (CC: in
my case) without selecting the highlighted field. This has resulted in
a few emails that have gone to the wrong person recently. Is just me,
or do others feel that the process if selecting items does not follow
Windows conventions?
