Re: [Evolution] copy & paste address probs

Sorry to be a pain about this and I now sort of understand why the box 
goes modal, so I thought the work around might be to just copy and paste 
it from the email to the address bit of the contacts editor, but this 
then strips all the carriage returns.

How are other people getting snail mail address into contacts?

Someone email mailed me their snail mail address, so I popped into

When this happens I can't copy and paste any text from any other evo 
window, which makes copy & pasting the address from the email into the 
"full address" window impossible.

If Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V fails, there should always be the generic method
available: Mark the text you want to copy with the mouse and
middle-click to paste that text. HTH

Sorry I didn't explain it very well, with the "Full Address" window 
open (press the  address button in the "contact editor"), it is 
imposible to highlight any text in any other evo window. 

Could it be a "modal box" problem?
