this helps.

Fedora and Evolution do not make it easy to insert screen captures
illustrate what's going on in companion terminal windows. I
have to use a mixture of plain text and HTML encoding to make the
outbound message show what I'm trying to demonstrate. I can't just
plain text.

As Milan says, when doing copy-paste into Evolution, the recommended
procedure is to use the Preformatted option in the composer's drop-
menu. This will stop the composer from imposing its own ideas about
formatting the pasted text.


I believe following that guidance is what started this flap in the
first place.

Unless I have a misconfiguration (very possible), my reading window and
reply composition window don't match. The reading window has HTML
enabled, which uses a typical sans serif font. When I want to reply, I
get a Plain Text / Normal window with a monospace font. I can send the
reply in that format, but when I see my reply in the mail list it's
shown as HTML rather than plain text. I have no control over that.
