Copy, Paste, Click
Xobni users rejoice! One of the top user-requested features has been implemented. You can now select text, copy, and paste text in the Xobni display. You can also click on links that appear in emails viewed in the Xobni sidebar.
We are approaching a point where you can do almost everything you need to do with email in the Xobni pane. Did you know you can resize the Xobni pane? Might as well slide it over to the left a bit further 😉
Jump to conversation
Thanks, Aamir, for adding this!. I didn’t even realize how much I wanted this feature until I had it working on my Xobni. Now when you find an email using Xobni search you can view the existing email or view the entire conversation. This is HUGE! You can now find a message using Xobni search and quickly view the individual email or the entire threaded conversation.
Some of you are reading this blog entry thanks to this new feature. The Xobni message box is a really easy way for us to communicate with our users within the Xobni sidebar. A small box pops up with a message like, “check out this blog post about our newest features.” We just like to be able to say hi.
Right click menus
We’ve added a lot of quick functionality in right click menus all across the Xobni UI. You’ll probably find a few that I won’t even mention here. Here are a few of my favorites:
• Copy Bryan’s info
You can now quickly grab a contact’s name, phone number, and email address by clicking anywhere in the top section of the Xobni sidebar (above “people connected to bryan”).
This is super useful for introducing people or sharing your contact’s info with a trusted coworker or friend. Notice: if you have multiple email addresses for a contact Xobni shows the email addresses in the order of most used, with the most used address at the top. Try this feature next time you need to share someone’s contact info with a coworker.
• Copy availability
Users like how easy we make it to share your availability. Now you can copy your availability to the clipboard and paste it into a reply message.
• Copy email address/compose email
If you need to quickly get the email addresses of a bunch of people in Xobni’s list of connected people you’ll like this new right click menu. Our new right click menu allows you to copy any contact’s email address into the clipboard.
• Open email containing attachment
Xobni makes it extremely easy to find old attachments. However, sometimes it is nice to be able to open the conversation that contained the attachment. Now you can easily do that with our new right click menu.
