Can't format text when composing an email to send.


Can't format text when composing an email to send.

When composing an email, I cannot format text. It always appears in small type, even when I change settings in the Mail Options choices, and I cannot italicize, make bold, or otherwise change the text/font that is used automatically when composing.

Re: Can't format text when composing an email to send.

jcmla - The mail does work kind of oddly. The only thing I can see that may cause/help your problem -

When you compose a new message there is a small taskbar for formatting. Just above the text box.

Is it just three items ( one is a paper clip & the last one on the right is a kind of double arrow?
Is it a robust task bar with all the formatting options?
If it is the first - yes there is no formatting available in plain text mode. Click on the double arrow to change to rich text & get the full task bar.
If it is the second, it should work. Try toggling through rich/plain to see if it resets.
