I do not know about keeping the cursor from moving.  I don’t think I’ve experienced that unless I closed the message.


As for having it not turn into table mode, my guess is it could have been a table but Jaws wasn’t indicating that when you were reading.

Tables only show up in HTML format I think.

I guess you could set Outlook to compose in plain text; something I personally do not like because links and such can get more easily messed up.

When I come back to the open email my cursor is at the top of the email. In the past I use to press control R to act like I’m replying to it.

Or if I do a reply the original email doesn’t turn into table format?
