Sorry. It was a SNAFU due to the nature of the GUI of this webmail client.
on which I have no control over, and overall, I can't write to their
developers complaining
that the UI hides the recipients unless the "to" field is focused. And
does not support
"short ut reassignment". And can't be forked with my own tweaks.
Still, I did err, and am not blaming the developers of gmail for that -
as I can see this behavior do make the UI more productive for most cases.

Now, since you are still at that, I wonder, why hadn't you replied
to my question:
What does MS word tells you when you open a Plain Text file, change
it, and try to save back over the original file?
