  • Configurable font and text size.

The editor supports the following control keys:

  • Ctrl + A, select all

  • Ctrl + C, copy selected text

  • Ctrl + F, find and highlight the selected text throughout the message

  • Ctrl + V, paste

  • Ctrl + X, cut selected text

  • Ctrl + Y, redo last undone edit

  • Ctrl + Z, undo last edit

  • Ctrl + left, move to previous word

  • Ctrl + right, move to next word

  • Ctrl + down, move to next paragraph

  • Ctrl + home, go to start of message

  • Ctrl + end, go to end of message

  • Ctrl + backspace, delete previous word

Any feedback and suggestions much appreciated, particularly from users on less mainstream OS platforms.

This release also fixes a problem saving state when responses contain international characters, and addresses various other bugs.
