have other hidden functionalities ?

To remedy your pain and suffer:

For keyboard shortcuts, select "Help 🡒 Contents" and go to "Gettin
g Started 🡒 Keyboard Shortcuts" in recent Evolution versions. If yo
u lack specific existing shortcuts on that help page in a supported
Evolution version (3.32 or newer), then please file a bug report at[]=8.+User+Docs

To use an external editor (HTML or not), select "Help 🡒 Contents", g
o to "Mail Composing > Using an external editor" and follow the steps.
