Re: [Evolution] Dialog Box "Turning HTML mode off will cause the text to lose all formatting"

Hi Pete,

Thanks for your reply.

Is it conceivable that this switch has only been added after release
3.16.5? There's no "Don't show this again" tick box in the dialog, and
I cannot find the key "prompt-on-composer-mode-switch" in the dconf
editor, nor any other key that seems to be related.

Anyway, good to know that the dialog can be disabled in newer versions
of Evolution. I'll try to upgrade as soon as possible. I was using an
even older version until recently which probably didn't have the dialog
at all. 

Thanks to everybody involved in Evolution development for their great
work. The software works reliably for me since many years, and overall
I'm very pleased with its interface.

I'm using plain text as my default editing mode in the mail composer in
Evolution 3.16.5 on OpenSuse Leap 42.1. Every time I reply to an HTML

will cause the text to lose all formatting. Do you want to continue?"
with two buttons "Don't lose formatting" and "Lose formatting". 

Is there any way to permanently deactivate this dialog box? (Other than
formatting my mail in HTML.)

In 3.18 that dialogue box has a tick box saying "Don't show this again"
or words to that effect.

Failing that, the setting is in dconf and you need to do something like

   dconf write "/org/gnome/evolution/mail/prompt-on-composer-mode-switch" false

I *think* it's the same for 3.16.x

Rather than using dconf to write a new value, you may be better of
using 'dconf-editor' and browsing to the correct key and setting it
within the gui.

I am also duty bound to remind you that fiddling around with dconf
settings has the ability to make programs unusable.  Don't randomly
change things if you don't know what they do.
