Advanced Snapshot Tips

There are a few tweaks that you can do in order to get the most out of taking snapshots within the Second Life client. Here are a few.

Multiple Addresses

The Recipient email field can accept multiple email addresses. You can separate each one with a semicolon.

account1@yourdomain.com;account2@yourdomain.com;account3@yourdomain.com

Populated Addresses

For those who always send snapshots to the same email addresses, you can edit a file on your file system to populate that information for you.

C:\Program Files (x86)\SecondLife\skins\default\xui\en-us\floater_postcard.xml

Look for the following and add your email addresses:

<text bottom="-35" follows="top|left" font="SansSerif" left="12" name="to_label">
    Recipient's Email:
</text>
<line_editor bottom_delta="-6" follows="left|top" height="20" 
left="120" max_length="254" name="to_form"
width="150" >account1@yourdomain.com;account2@yourdomain.com;account3@yourdomain.com</line_editor>

Longer Messages

By default, the message is limited to 700 characters. You can extend this to 6,526 characters by editing a file on your file system.

C:\Program Files (x86)\SecondLife\skins\default\xui\en-us\floater_postcard.xml

Look for the following and change the max_length property:

<text bottom_delta="-23" follows="top|left" font="SansSerif" left="12" name="msg_label">
    Message:
</text>
<text_editor bottom_delta="-150" follows="left|top|right|bottom" height="140" left="12"
max_length="700" name="msg_form" width="420">
    Type your message here.
</text_editor>
