Arch Linux 64 with KDE 4.12.1
Similar to bug 324229 (comment at the bottom for this issue)
Starting with KDE 4.12 if you use %SIGNATURE in the templates for Reply / Reply-All the signature will be inserted, but the email will be empty otherwise. Also, it gets stuck in "Rich Text" mode.
The "signature" is defined in my default identity as "use field below" and is "plain text". I have a divider in it. My sig field is:
If I use the "automatically insert signature" option it does insert it, but the cursor is always at the end of the signature vs. at the start of the email.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set a plain text signature in your identity.
2. enable the %SIGNATURE option in the standard templates.
3. reply or reply-all to an email.
Clears the email.
%CURSOR would work, insert the signature and include the original body of the email.
Also, the composer should honor the "plain text" settings and not jump to "rich text" or HTML mode.
This bug has only been reported for versions before 4.14, which have been unsupported for at least two years now. Can anyone tell if this bug still present?
If noone confirms this bug for a Framework-based version of kmail2 (version 5.0 or later, as part of KDE Applications 15.12 or later), it gets closed in about three months.
Just as announced in my last comment, I close this bug. If you encounter it again in a recent version (at least 5.0 aka 15.08), please open a new one unless it already exists. Thank you for all your input.
