I completely under estimated TC!
« on: April 27, 2017, 06:03:49 PM »
Because of the need to avoid the bouncingMokeys of KDE
and the garbage of Micro$hit, I've developed the defence
mechanism of avoiding the InYoFace first presentation.

So I mostly ignored the <wbar> and thus missed the well thought out
menuTree, and hacked my own attempt at <Save/Restore>.

Since you can't lose reflexes which you've learned, I can only slowly
migrate to the proper way, and am happy to see that opera-12 now is
<continious> between sessions. Ie. previous <settings> are saved &
restored.

opera-12's documentation has a lot to say about the NNTP/Newsgroup
capability; but I'm not succeeding.
The intial setting for NNTP, branch off of the <Mail menu> and
then again later in the settings-tree merge with <mail settings>
which seems wrong eg. <send qued email after checking email>.

Why is *that* included in NNTP's settings?
PS. I make a strong distiction between <verbatin/pasteable> and
<interpret my words>. Hence my use of "<" my words ">".
I know there is at least one clown on this forum who objects to
the use of notation different from the herd's current fad.

Navigating between this draft, written in VT:mc and X:opera needs
6 steps, with no possibility of carry-the-text via copy/paste;
hence I'm force to guess at the original wording.
===============
Have any TC users succeeded with opera-12 for NNTP ?

== TIA.

The TC way to copy and paste is covered somewhere in the wiki, FAQ's or book iirc.. 

However there are only two actions which is simply "highlight" the text to copy, then "depress the middle mouse button (or scroll wheel)" to paste the highlighted text in desired destination.

Maybe that works for your scenario, or maybe not but it's definitely worth a shot..

You can't copy/paste between X <--> VT
The <X> menu has different/conflicting behaviour to ALL menues
that I've used since Win3 [early 90's]; so I use a dozen VTs/consoles,
except for wily & opera to get my gmail;
and of course for the menuTree rooted in <wbar>.
