Can I make a menu button to change the message body view?

Posted

I've found a few plugins that let me add new menu buttons, but none of them contain a menu button that does the equivalent of click View -> Message Body As -> Plain Text

Ideally I'd like a pair of buttons, where the other one does View -> Message Body As -> Original HTML.

So if there is no add-on that provides those buttons (Phoenity Buttons does the latter but not the former), is there an add-on where I can define my own button?

Oh, I see. They need to put that in the documentation! It didn't occur to me that it would cycle through them and when I tried it, multiple clicks on the button didn't seem to do anything. Whatever, it does seem to work now. Thanks.

You can define your own buttons here, but not for TB 68. The HTML button in Phoenity Buttons cycles through the 3 choices, Original HTML, Simple HTML and Plain text. But I'm not aware of a simple way to make a button that only chooses plain text.
