Missing 'a' bug reproducible

P

This should rate as one of the weirdest WLMail bugs I think. Sometimes, when composing an e-mail or news message, I was not able to type an 'a' or an 'A' into the message, whereas every other letter could be typed. I now realise that this occurred when the 'Layout' options window was left open. Basically, the 'A' key did not work at all. This is consistently reproducible.

Hi, Bill.

Looks like you're also missing the apostrophe - also known as the
single-quote. Sometimes there's a space where the apostrophe should be (Wht
re), sometimes not (cnt).

Did not notice that R C.

Usually when I type a word like "don’t" spell check automatically adds the
apostrophe for me like it just did, but maybe in the layout view it dropped
it
We can develop a news WLM lingo :-)
Thanks

Hppens even if you try to use lt- (for _pply)

[closed Layout dialog] ; )

My beef with that dialog is the accelerator keys don't work
as nicely as they would in OE (regarding the amount of Alt-
pressing which is required.)

E.g. I don't see why the Reading pane checkbox needs Alt-w
instead of just w to toggle it. My guess is that it could have
something to do with the fact that the dialog is non-modal
(which is one reason why you could never get this symptom
in OE.) Getting rid of OE's annoying modal dialogs seems
to have been an incidental objective of the WLM project.
So maybe now we're seeing the consequences of using the
opposite extreme for implementing dialogs. <eg>
