Signature position - Not Rocket Science

New Blackberry Bold, amazing technology, light years ahead of the competition.

 

One slight problem, this is not rocket science, I'm very surprised that blackberry have not fixed it.

 

When I reply to a text or rtf email, my email signature "Sent from my blackberry... " appears at the bottom of the email chain. It should appear at the bottom of the bit that I just wrote.

 

Are Blackberry aware of this.  Is there a fix?

 

 

Marek.

Yep, you're not the first to notice.

 

The fix, or workaround, is to add your signature as an AutoText (Options > AutoText) and when you send an email, enter the AutoText characters (maybe something easy like "zx" to trigger insertion of the AutoText where you wish it to be.

Thanks - that works fine. Very kind of you to reply so quickly.

 

It still begs the question why Blackberry have let something so fundamental go unfixed.

 

Maybe I should take a job as a Blackberry software engineer and fix it for them Smiley Happy

On you model, the path should be:

To customize AutoText on a BlackBerry OS 7.1 and earlier device:

  1. Select Options followed by Typing and Input
  2. Select Word Substitution
