Advanced Snapshot Tips

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

Multiple Addresses

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

When sending to multiple addresses, each recipient can not see the other addresses that you sent the message to.

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:
<line_editor bottom_delta="-6" follows="left|top" height="20" 
left="120" max_length="254" name="to_form"
width="150" >;;</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">
<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.
