I don't have an answer but I have experienced the same thing and for a while 
the edit window seemed to minimize or something because I couldn't read a thing 
and all keystrokes, although echoed, were delayed unless I maximized the 
window. Don't know why or what brought it on then as mysteriously as it began 
it went away.

I am convinced that this is a feature of XP, that is, random adjustment of 
software settings.

  Subject: [JAWS-Users] Composing E-mails

  Hi all.

  I am using Jaws 7 with XP home.

  I am also using Outlook Express to compose e-mails.

  Lately, when composing e-mails text in the message seems to be cut off at the 
ends of sentences.

  Almost like the word wrap thing in Windows note Pad.

  If I didn't know any better, I'd swear I had a similar feature like Word Wrap 
turned off or something.

  On the flip side, if I maximize the message window that problem goes away and 
I'm able to read the line in it's entirety.

  Any ideas why this is happening and how I can fix it?

  I also noticed that in the format menu of the composing message window, 
something like send picture is checked.

  Admittedly, I've never noticed that before as I've never experienced this 
problem, so I can't say if that's always been checked or not, so the question 
is, should it be checked or not?

  It's not a major thing, but it's just a pain in the ass to have to maximize 
the window every time.
