Excessive lose formatting warning in Evolution
Last modified: 2016-01-19 12:17:40 EST
Description of problem:
A dialog pops up asking about losing formatting replying HTML emails, every time.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set the default email format to text
2. reply any html email
A pop up window asks to confirm the email will lose formatting. No way to disable the warning -- interrupting the work flow of replying an email.
At least a way to disable this warning. A fix was tagged for 3.17 but Fedora shall consider a back-port for F22 (which uses 3.16.), since F22 is still maintained and the current behavior is very annoying.
How did people survive this for this long without reporting a bug, seriously? I guess because most people who reply email in plain text do not use Evolution?
Thanks for a bug report. I'm sorry, but I'm not going to backport the change. There had been done many more serious fixes than this in the evolution with compare of the 3.16 and 3.18 series, not counting all the fixes in the mail composer part itself, thus it's better to update to more recent Fedora than to randomly pick upstream patches and request their backport.
