QuickFill

SlimBoat includes a powerful full-featured form filler which save you a lot of time completing web forms and typing login information. The form filler functionalities are available from the menu "QuickFill" and related toolbar buttons. The form filler can save form information previously entered manually as form files. After the form files are saved, when you reach the same page again, SlimBoat will automatically find the best matched form based on all the forms you have saved and let you complete it with a single click. In addition to that, you can define an identity file which includes your name, contact and address information. With such information, SlimBoat can automatically complete blank web forms for you using intelligent recognition. SlimBoat supports multiple identity files so that your entire family can share a single installation of SlimBoat under the same account.

Save Form

Select from "Quick Fill->Save Active Form" menu to save the active form as a form file. You must make sure the form you want to save is active by clicking inside any text boxes within the form first. You can also right click in any of the text boxes within the form and access "Save Active Form" from the popup menu to save the selected form. In the rare case that you want to save more than one forms on the same page, select "Quick Fill->Save All Forms" from the menu.

Save Active Form is available as a button on the standard toolbar. Simply right click on the standard toolbar and select "Customize Standard toolbar" to add the button for quicker access.

After a form is saved, it will be available as one of the menu items on the bottom of the QuickFill menu. Feel free to create subfolders to better organize your saved forms if you have a lot of them.

Fill Form

After a form is saved, you can access it from the bottom portion of the QuickFill menu. Selecting the saved form will automatically open the saved page URL, complete the web form with the saved form data and submit the form automatically. If you hold down CTRL key while selecting a saved form, SlimBoat will not automatically submit the form for you in case you want to review it or manually input some additional information before submission.

If you have already navigated to a web page which contains a web form that you saved previously, just select the first item under the QuickFill menu. If SlimBoat only detects a single match based on the active web site, the menu text of the first menu item will change into the name of the single match, such as "Fill with Your Gmail Account". If multiple matches are found, the menu text will read "Fill with best match". A dialog will popup which let you select from a list of matched forms to fill with.

In case SlimBoat is not able to detect the best matched form correctly, you still have chance to manually pick the right form from the menu "Fill with saved forms". On the first level of the sub menu, all the forms from the same domain will be listed. At the bottom of the sub menu, you can pick from all the forms from any domains via the "All Forms" sub menu. As with mentioned above, if you hold down CTRL key, the form won't be submitted automatically.

Fill With Identity Information

Before starting to fill forms with identity information, you need first select "QuickFill->Fill with identities->Edit Identities" to create one or more identities. You need make one of the defined identities the current one. Each identity file contains your name, contact information, address and other additional information. To fill a blank form with the current identity, select "Fill with current identity" from the QuickFill menu. Otherwise, select one of the identities listed under the menu "Fill With Identities" to fill the blank forms in the active page with the selected identity information.
