Re: [Evolution] Copy/paste in new message corrupts formatting


Thank you for your prompt response. Your comments make sense but any idea why it disrupts the incoming message formatting as well? The received message should be seen exactly as it was sent with same formatting, shouldn't it?
If we receive mail having table, borders are gone even if sender sent table with borders. If we want to write something in the table while replying then we have to set the table border manually. And sometimes it doesn't even recognize as a table and hence we can't do any table formatting.

Can anyone guide me how to improve html and rich text formatting support in evolution?

I doubt the Evo developers consider it an issue. Making Evo understand
every kind of document out there and obey its formatting rules is
something way beyond its spec. This kind of thing works (up to a point)
in Windows, because of the underlying OLE model, but there's nothing
comparable in the Unix/Linux world.

The way to pass random documents around is via attachments.
