In addition to the YAML parameters shown in the first example, this example letter includes the parameter
return-short which allows for a different, possibly shorter sender’s address to fit in the envelope’s window.
--- author: Karl-Heinz Müller-Lüdenscheidt return-address: - Vicco-von-Bülow-Str. 3 - 10623 Berlin-Charlottenburg return-short: Müller-Lüdenscheidt, Vicco-von-Bülow-Str. 3, 10623 Berlin address: - Dr. Klöbner - Musterstr. 12 - 34567 Musterstadt subject: Usage of YAML parameter `return-short` opening: Dear Dr. Klöbner, closing: Sincerely, signature: Karl-Heinz Müller-Lüdenscheidt output: komaletter::komaletter --- this letter shows the usage of the YAML parameter `return-short`. The parameter has been created to allow for a different possibly shorter address to fit in the window. If `return-address` and `return-short` are used, the probably longer `return-address` is shown in the letterhead and the hopefully one line `return-short` in the address window. Usually (without using `return-short`) the address in the window is assembled from the `author` and the `return-address` and therefore identical to the address in the letterhead. The `return-short` must contain the entire return address shown in the window including the author name, since the author is not prepended. The YAML parameter `return-short` maybe either a one line text variable or a YAML sequence also known as list. ``` return-short: Müller-Lüdenscheidt, Vicco-von-Bülow-Str. 3, 10623 Berlin return-short: - Müller-Lüdenscheidt - Vicco-von-Bülow-Str. 3 - 10623 Berlin ``` In the case of the one line text form the writer specifies the address separator, a comma in the above example. If `return-short` is given as a sequence / list, the address separator is defined in the relevant layout (`lco`-file).
