[Evolution] Removing attachments from a reply

Hi folks,

Someone just sent me an email with two very long text plain files as
attachment. Evolution automatically showed the contents of the
attachments, which I though was kind of cool, and I could hide them by
clicking the green arrow. Nice.

When I replied to the message, however, Evolution automatically included

of lines (M-@ M->) did not work. Obviously Evo can't replicate the
entire Emacs command set. So what would be a better way to do this,
besides holding down the LMB while the text scrolls down (slowly) to the
