 Email type will not change colors and fonts erratic when answering emails

I've asked about this problem some time ago with no "fix," so I think I'll
give it a go again to see if someone new is one the newsgroup that can help.

In answering and exchanging  emails below the paragraph that was previously
written in a different color:

1)  If I write below an already written  green word  (it will stay green)
2) the words will be green
3) then if  I  highlight my words to change it to red,
4) it will NOT change to red.

OR
1) If I go to Red  FIRST and click on it in order to be able to write in red
2) My words will STILL  be in green

My fonts even will change size in midstream when answering an email and WILL
NOT change back.  They will even change color and size of font without doing
anything and will NOT change back.

Thanks,
Dee

Judging from your previous posts on this problem (http://snurl.com/393g,
http://snurl.com/393h), I'd suspect the original message was sent using a
stationery template.

Try this before typing your reply: Format>Apply Stationery>No stationery.

I wished this would've worked, but it did not work in either case, changing
a font nor color.
Any other suggestion?
Thanks,
Dee

1. See Steve Cochran's reply in http://snurl.com/393g.

2. Place/click your cursor where you want to begin typing your reply,
then...

Format>Font>[apply color/font/size]> OK.

3. Can't recall if you've tried this but...Try the account in a new Named
Identity (File>Identities>Add new identity).  Assuming all is well, import
messages from the old Identity before deleting it (File>Identities>Manage
Identities).

By chance was the original composed using MS Outlook and RTF format?

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

Quote:
>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
and font.

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.
Dee

Thanks for your help.

Yes, PA Bear.
Off topic: 770 NY station was talking this morning about 15,000 bears being
in PA.
Are you one of them? <grin>
Thanks again.

This RESOLUTION BROUGHT ANOTHER PROBLEM:

If I go to Format>Formatted, I CAN change fonts color and type of font;
HOWEVER, I cannot have a dot in front of "Normal" at the same time.

The Normal checked off makes my margins fit the window size, so that when
Formatted is checked, the words go scrolling way out past the right margin.

Since I can't keep Formatted AND Normal both checked, and I can't find a way
to keep my margins in the window when I'm in "Formatted" -- I'm stuck again!

Thanks for any answer.

Ah, that's at the root of your problem.  OE simply can't handle OL's RTF
formatting.  (It's not the same as OE's RichText or HTML.)  In general,
you'll have to ask your correspondent to send to you using only OL Plain
Text, especially if there's an attachment to the OL message...unless he/she
is willing to use OE.

Or you might convince this correspondent to compose in Word and attach the
.doc file to the OL Plain Text message?  That way you would continue using
the stationery/formatting you both like (apparently).  BTW, OE doesn't like
Word's formatting any better than OL's.
