I am using your tiny little Macro since a while. Works great. Thank you.
One question: Is it possible to show date format in other language than English?

{{{MMMM}}} shows always Decembre instead of Dezember (German). Local Language is set to German, so that is not the reason for showing Date message in English.

Thank you

[ /{{{yy}}}/g, function(date) {return padZero(date.getFullYear(), 4).substring(2,4);

Works great, thanks for providing the add-on.

One remark: the add-on interferes with replying to email messages at the top.

I followed these instructions to no avail:


Disabling the Macro Template add-on is the only way to restore replying at the top again.

TB 78.14.0 (32-bit)

Thanks for your help.

Such an amazingly simple to use extension! I love it! Can you get it to work with version 78 of Thunderbird? It's so useful to me.

There is a new version supporting Thunderbird 78 in review by Mozilla.
It is now at GitHub https://github.com/nattoheaven/macrotemplate.

This is a fantastic useful little add-on and exactly the thing I was looking for (it sure was hard to find).

It turned out that the month/week/day names are only in English but I needed them in German. I found that the names can be rather easily changed to any language by editing the bootstrap.js file like this:

+ Extract macro_template-sm+tb.xpi, e.g. with 7zip
+ open bootstrap.js with an editor
+ replace the English month (week, day) names within the file with the names of your language (e.g. I also added the required dot after every abbreviated German month and day name)
+ create .zip file from all the files and rename .zip to .xpi
+ simply install over your previous installation in TB.

But my main use for this add-on is to post an email at the start of each month displaying the PREVIOUS fully written month in the subject line and the body. I found out I could do this by adding a "- 1" to the appropriate [date.getMonth()] field so it will look like this [date.getMonth() - 1]. This will display the previous month. (Just in case someone else also would like to do this.)

Thanks for a really nice program. I don't understand why this program is not more known and why there has been only one reviewer before me so far. Maybe it has to do with missing keywords in the description of the program. When searching e.g. for "insert time" or "variables" the program doesn't show up in the results.

What about time, subject, To, From and so on...?

Hi Nick2222

Thank you for your reviewing my add-on.

First, the subject field is already to replace. Is this feature broken at your environment?

Next, I am trying to implement your features, and have uploaded a new version.
Only the from field, a little difficult to implement for me, is not implemented. However I am studying how to implement the from.

Would my new version suit for you?
