Email type will not change colors and fonts erratic when answering emails
1. Steve Cochran's reply did not fix.
2. Two is my question. This does not work.
3. Another two identities in the household do the same thing.
But after ALL these months worrying with this problem, I did find the
trouble JUST NOW.
The ANSWER IS!!!!!
When I want to type in another font or color, I will have to go to
>Format>Style>FORMATTED. The problem being that the "Formatted black dot"
will not STAY. The black dot keeps popping back and forth between
1) "paragraph" and
2) "Formatted" and
3) no dots at all.
AFTER THIS SETTING is SET, I go AGAIN to Format, Font and then pick my color
What a pain!!!! But it can be done. My correspondent is having the same
problem. I'm not sure she'll be able to pick up on this problem and work
with it. Hope so.!
The problem WAS and still is keeping the Syle in Formatted mode.!!! I am
wondering if anyone has an answer to keeping this from popping to
"paragraph" -- oh, well, probably too much to ask <grin>
Thanks, PA Bear -- I solved it!!! with your encouragement.
Thanks for your help.
