This creates a fresh MHT file. This can come in very handy when you want to manually copy and paste a piece from a website you surfed to using Internet Explorer (IE). By default, a temporary file named YYMMDD-untitled.mht initially will be created where YYMMDD stands for the actual date.
Use File-Open-Browse to open a MHT file you want to edit. You aslo can use the history list after clcicking on 'File'.
Quickly rename a file by first selecting the file and then editing the file name in the pop up window. By editing the file path you also can move a file.
Similar to the refresh function in Internet Explorer.
- Save as IE... (only for advanced users)
Save complete web site pages, similar to the function in Internet Explorer: if you surfed to the wanted page using eMarker instead of with IE then you can save from within eMarker. Choose as type (*.mht) when saving. See menu item below when this fails.
This can NOT save any eventual editing you did, using eMarker.
- Save when IE could not save... (only for advanced users)
Sometimes IE fails to save a webpage as a MHT file. You can use the menu item in subject in order to try to solve this. In many occasions a rough but acceptable and editable file gets saved.
- Save as... (only for advanced users)
Save an open MHT file which you marked in edit mode, to a new MHT file. You can choose what name you want.
If you started from a file created with File-New then the temporary file will be removed automatically.
Save an open MHT file which you marked in edit mode to the name that you already have chosen. If the file name still contains 'untitled' then the program will automatically route you to a handy dialog where you can choose a file location and name.
- Rename as... (only for advanced users)
This can rename and/or move the actually loaded file to another location. First save before renaming.
You can delete files from within eMarker.
This wil pop up a print dialog like you would get one with Internet Explorer.
If background colors do not print then make sure that in Internet Explorer the option for printing background colors is checked.
You find this option in IE by diving into the menu similar to this: Tools-Internet Options-Advanced-Printing.
This wil print without first popping up a dialog. It uses actual (standard) print settings.
See above when background colors do not print.
- Edit mode
Toggles surfing mode - edit mode. When the program starts up, it starts in surfing mode. Before you can edit something you must make sure that you opened a MHT file. Then you go to edit mode. You also can use the edit mode button to do the same. That button is green as long as you are in edit mode. It is red when you are browsing (surfing mode).
Advanced users: see also options - only edit mht files.
Mark the selected text! The marker color you have chosen in options (or with the multi-colored button) will be used. You also can use shortcut CTRL+spacebar.
Toggle selected text bold - not bold
Toggle selected text italic - not italic
Toggle selected text underline - not underline
Although eMarker is mainly meant for highlighting, you can choose a new font or font size here for the selected text. Handy when you want to make something bigger.
- Remove formatting
Will try to remove formatting like bold, italic, underline or the marker color. You can use the button with the red cross too.
- Web page
This will try to launch a searching robot. Could be handy when you are surfing using eMarker.
- Text in actual web page
This will launch a find box with which you can quickly find a specific word in the page. This can be used in both surfing and edit mode.
- Mark color...
This will bring up a box which lets you choose a default marking color. You will see that the mark button will receive this color. From now on, every time you select a piece of text then the chosen color will be used everytime you hit 'Mark!' either with the mark button or with CTRL+SPACEBAR! You can change this default color as much you want; several colors can be used on one page.
Remark: apart from this default mark color you can quickly use a color from the color grid filled with some common preset colors.
- Default save to...
Choose a folder from which you get the easiest to your MHT files. When you hit 'save as' then you will be able to save quickly the edited page. Opening of a mht file will be faster too.
Remark: When saving as IE then this default folder is NOT used.
- Prepend file name with date
If checked then every new mht will start with the date of today in the format YYMMDD.
- Use selection for file name
If checked then when saving a new mht you can win time. Usually the content of your text contains the title that you want. Select this, then hit the save button and you will see that the title will be entered for you in the save dialog.
- Only edit mht files
The main purpose of eMarker is editing mht files but you can get more freedom by unchecking this option. Then you can try edit and save htm(l) and eml files too. Not recommended though. Only very advanced users can experiment with unchecking this option.
- Try to suppress script errors
When this option is not checked then from time to time you will get pop-ups with scripts errors. Sometimes the errors can be quite abundant and sticky. This option helps you by avoiding most of the pop-ups. Normally this option should be left checked.
- Open MHT files with eMarker
When this option is checked then the file system will try to open any MHT file with eMarker. For instance when you like to launch a file with Windows Explorer.
- Launch eMarker by right-clicking
When checked then while you are surfing the net with Internet Explorer then you can select an interesting portion of a web page with the mouse and right click on the text. At that moment a menu will pop up in which you then can choose 'Copy to eMarker...'. This will launch eMarker and copy the selection to it.
As this is a very handy tool, you are recommended to keep this option checked.
