#7415 closed bug (duplicate)

Mail application: line break missing from reply preamble pop-up menu

Description

Using hrev41131 (gcc2hybrid).

The 'Replay preamble' menu doesn't show '\n' as the correct combination to insert a line break (see ). If you choose ' - Newline' from the menu, instead of line break space is inserted before the quoted text.

In source code (src/apps/mail/Prefs.cpp) I found the following expression for the menu:

BMenu*
TPrefsWindow::_BuildReplyPreambleMenu()
{
	const char *substitutes[] = {
/* To do: Not yet working, leave out for 2.0.0 beta 4:
		"%f - First name",
		"%l - Last name",
*/
		B_TRANSLATE("%n - Full name"),
		B_TRANSLATE("%e - E-mail address"),
		B_TRANSLATE("%d - Date"),
		"",
		B_TRANSLATE("\\n - Newline"),
		NULL
	};
