actif  Sujet n° 345  External Editor not invoked when "Compose messages in HTML format" is used

For accounts where "Compose messages in HTML format" is checked/enabled in the "Composition & Addressing" settings, Ctrl-E does not invoke the external editor.

Toggling this option (disabling it) makes it work as expected.

I am using "gvim -f" as editor, with Thunderbird 17.0.3 (Ubuntu Precise) and the latest version of "External Editor" (1.0.0).

I also have this problem and have the same behavior, i.e. works if compose in HTML format is turned off, nothing happens when it is turned on and external editor is invoked.

Using emacs editor, EE version 1.0.0 and Thunderbird 24.8.0 on Red Hat Linux like system.

I have just found the following information on
HTML EditionWhen editing a HTML message, the External Editor button provides a drop-down menu allowing to edit as HTML (thus keeping all text enhancements), or as plain text.

I've then added the "External editor" button to the compose window (right click the free space with the toolbar, then customize it).

This button allows you to edit as HTML or text, and after having used it once, the keyboard shortcut (Ctrl-E) works also for HTML mails, using the last selection from the button.

The related property is probably:


My guess is that when it's unset, Ctrl-E does nothing for HTML e-mails.
