If you have filled "Your name:" field in "General" tab, like so:

Your name: Jon Bullet

and John is the first name, Bullet is the second, so template is the following:

Best regards,
Software Engineer
Berlin Tech Company


Best regards,
Software Engineer
Berlin Tech Company


  1. %OFROMNAME is the full name written in the mentioned field
  2. %OFROMFNAME is the first name
  3. %OFROMLNAME is the second name
  4. %CURSOR will put your cursor on this place, in our case at the beginning of the new line
