Is there any way to create a personal signature to add automatically to a new memo, in Lotus Notes R 4.5?
I tried creating a new stationery but I want my signature to be added when I press the new memo button.

AFAI remember with 4.5x only way is to change the design of the mail box. View | design choose forms, modify the Memo form by double clicking once into the Body field and set the default to be what you want as your signature, e.g.:

@NewLine + "Steve" + @NewLine + @NewLine + "steve@myaddress.com" + @NewLine + "Phone: 23434042"+@NewLine

Then Save and close.  right click on the Memo form in the list and from one of the tabs (forget which, its been a while since I've used R4) tick the box "Prohbit design replace/refresh from updating".

Close the design an when you create a new memo it should have your text at the end of the document (which you can delete if you wish).

Thanks Steve,

Do you know how to put bold text in it?

You can't that way, sorry that will do plain text only.  You'd have to add it using rich text commands by adding commands to one of the events after the document is opened.  Late now, will look back again tomorrow.
