Still Problem with copy-and-paste

When we type an email and want to paste some content from some web page, for example a flight reservation, or anything else, than often that content might be a HTML-Table.  In such a case, the webmail composer remains stuck inside of the included table cell, it is impossible to move cursor out of it, and type more content under the included text.  This is a long, long (numerous long's omitted for brievity) problem with the webmail composer.  It is stunning that something that elementary needs so many years to gain some attention and to become resolved.


I often open Thunderbird, or now the W10 emailer, type the entire email, later cut-and paste it in its entirety and enter into the webmail composer.  Or I type the text before and after the intented cut-and-paste content, and than paste it between the paragraphs.


Could you please "kick some butt" or "wake up someone" in the webmail team and fix it at last???

Re: Still Problem with copy-and-paste

Hi, ThomasH - I'm not quite sure what you are referring to. Could you please provide a screenshot? I was able to copy and paste the HTML table and modify it with no issues as well as type before and after.
