Dear Sue;It wasn't so bad before I got sick, and could reliably use speech recognition, but when I need to type by hand, especially if I am on the PC, I cannot pick and choose how much of the text I quote. Copying and pasting is much easier from within a reply to original message with the original message quoted.
When my voice is back and speech recognition behaves nicely, and I am working on my Mac, then I can reply the way you like. It is just tough when I don't have all the tools available to me. I have been fighting with a wrist that will not bend and I do not have health insurance, so it can be really problematic if I have to mouse too much and my typing is so poor.
Thankfully just now I was able to get back on my Mac and reply more efficiently, but I wanted you to understand as well as others who hate the excess that there are many reasons why someone might find it easier to forward their acknowledgment with a simple note at the top. I will try to the best of my ability to reply with a new note, but sometimes it is just not as practical.
Thanks for your understanding! Valerie On 10 28, 2009, at 12:21 AM, siss52 wrote:
Valerie, I am truly sorry. I just didn't think. Please forgive me. Sue S.
