So could a pop-up menu (right click) entry be added to rewrap the text. This should have a selection mode context - so that if it is chosen when text has been selected it only rewraps that selection. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Reply to an email with > or >> lines 2. Select a paragraph 3. Select rewrap from the Edit menu Actual Results: Whole message is rewrapped, not individual paragraph - after clicking Edit->Rewrap menu entry. Expected Results: Individual paragraph is rewrapped after clicking 'pop-up' menu entry.
I'd vote for this one, too. My old mailer (The Bat!) supported marking a paragraph and pressing a hotkey, then the paragraph got rewrapped. If the paragraph was quoted, quoting signs were fixed as well. This is a very good feature, so PLEASE include it.
Is this related/a duplicate of 228315 The basic request here seems to be that rewrap should understand what it is wrapping (e.g. an already quoted block, a coloured block, a paragraph) and should preserve that when performing the wrapping. I'm most concerned about the preservation of quotes when rewrapping 1 or more long lines. At the moment, if I do the following. 1. select one or more long lines that are quoted in the compose window 2. click on edit/rewrap The line is rewrapped but the quote symbol isn't duplicated on the extra lines. This is asbug more than an enhancement request I think.
I don't understand why this bug was opened. Support for rewrapping a selected paragraph has been in place since before TB ever got started. Rewrap *does* maintain quote marks, so long as they are properly formatted. In plain-text composition, you cannot just paste in a bunch of lines that have already been prefixed with '>' and have those treated as a quote; you need to use Paste As Quotation, or to actually reply to a message, to get the lines handled as quotes. But once they *are* recognized as quotes, they can be selectively rewrapped. Not especially well, but that's bug 187997. In HTML composition, rewrap on a quoted block transforms it in ways that I think are senseless; that's bug 249082. Simon Billingsley: do you have any reason not to mark this bug Invalid?
I agree that this is a duplicate of Mozilla MailNews bug 187997 I can't find the original email that prompted this bug, but reading the duplicate bug I can see that I am not the only one to experience this problem. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 187997 ***
