How do I turn off italics in Thunderbird?

  thumbscrew 21:00 10 May 2018

I've just composed an email in Thunderbird, changed to italics for one sentence and now I can't revert to normal type.....it keeps changing back to italics. Can anyone help please?

Do you mean that when you click on the A again to deselect italics to go back to ordinary it doesn't deselect?

Do you have the latest version of TB? v52.7.0 (32-bit). Also if clicking on the italic A symbol doesn't work have you tried the shortcut key instead? Ctrl+i to switch italics on or off?

I use Thunderbird. For me, as lotvic says above, clicking on italics to write something can then be changed back to normal text by clicking on the italics symbol again.

Yes, I use Tb too ;)

Are you moving the cursor to where you want to start typing again, BEFORE clicking on A (Italics, not bold), then start typing?

Thanks very much lotvi, wiganken, difarm and AroundAgain. Taken up wiganken's control suggestion and that did the trick. Thanks again.

Glad it worked.
