Re: [Evolution] problem with word-wrap during message compose

Well, you don't necessarily have to use the font named
"Monospace" (which I use, and looks fine to me)--I believe you just need
to use a non-proportional font.  Depending on the collection of fonts
you have, you may be able to find one that's more pleasing to your eye
(note that you can also choose to have Evolution respect the Gnome-wide
font that's called "Terminal font" in your Gnome Font Preferences

Thanks for the information.  When I changed to 'monospace' font it fixed
the problem but it doesn't seem very logical that there would be the
ability to change the terminal font to something more pleasant and not
have it work properly.

I would deem this more a bug.

Last month when I was writing a message the compose window started
word-wrapping at about 36 characters.  The outbound message was ok.

I went through everything I could find in the settings and in the files
in my home directory but no luck.

Anyone have any suggestions ?

Yep, this one comes up every few weeks. There are 2 possibilities that
could cause this:

- The font size used for composing messages is way too huge. This will
  cause the text to wrap at the right window border. Decrease the font
  size or increase the width of the Composer window.

- Rather than a monospaced font, you are using a font with variable
  width for Composing text/plain messages. Set
   Tools / Settings / Mail Preferences / General / Terminal Font
  to a sane monospace font.
