Viewing emails properly in a full Pandora window Empty Viewing emails properly in a full Pandora window

Tue Mar 29, 2022 7:40 pm
Eudora displays emails in the full screen.

But I am unable to get Pandora to do that.

Pandora displays the message in a narrow column down the middle of the screen, including also formatting lines . I can enlarge the image using Ctrl+Mouse Wheel, but that's a hassle and does not eliminate the formatting lines.

I have a jpg clip of the problem, but cannot figure out how to insert or attach that jpg clip to this message since the "Insert Image" icon only allows an URL, not a local file.

Appreciate any help!

Harry,

Have you upgraded to Pandora V4.1.7?

No, but does 4.1.7 solve that known display problem?

Harry,

First, I highly recommend you always upgrade to the new Pandora version.  Only once have I encountered a problem with an upgrade but since I save the old Pandora upgrade Zip files, It is quite easy to fall back to a previous version.  

Second, included with every Pandora upgrade.zip file is Pandora.txt file which explains the changes, updates, additions, and deletions to Pandora.

Third, I have not encountered the Display problem you are describing.  I think you would be best served by upgrading to the latest version and then checking to see if the problem still present.

Fourth, when a Forum comment is being created, the formatting toolbar contains several icons in particular: Host an Image and Insert an Image.  First Host an Image which uploads it to a server and provides a URL and then use the URL to Insert an Image into the message.

Screen shot indeed can help. You can send one to Pandora-Mail@groups.io inline, or to support address (Help/Send Feedback).

OK, trying the Host Image/Insert an Image route here to include the screen shot:  Viewing emails properly in a full Pandora window Pandor10

This screenshot shows a formatted email from Ford displayed in Pandora and you can see that the message is compressed into a narrow column rather than filling the screen as in Eudora.

In Pandora I can use ctrl+mouse roller to expand the display somewhat so it is readable, but this does not eliminate the annoying formatting lines.

Thanks for any help!  -Harry

No, it's not compressed, you just can see hidden table borders. That was resolved earlier this year, so upgrade.
