I noticed that you use evolution Evolution 2.28.3 to read and compose
emails. I've experienced this same issue in the past and have the same
result when attempting to reply to Ali Hassan's recent email. (I'm using
Evolution 2.22.3.1) I've filed a bug[1] after looking for an open one on
bugzilla. You should add a comment that you duplicated the bug in your
version.

As a work around, I normally:
- highlight the text in the table/cell press ctrl+c to copy it the the
clipboard;
- open a plain old text editor;
- press ctrl+v to paste the text to the text editor;
- go back to evolution's composer and delete the table (either by just
pressing delete until the I'm sure that it is gone or right clicking the
table and choosing the delete table option;
- go back to the text editor and press ctrl+a, then ctrl+c to copy the
text to the clipboard without formatting;
- go to evolution's composer and press ctrl+shift+v to paste as quoted
text.

It may seem like a lot of steps but it takes less than a second if I
already have a text editor open.

If someone knows of a better way to be able to reply with in-line
comments in this situation when using evolution, please let me know.

Well, thank God! I'm not completely natters, just on the fringe. I'll
add my four cents to that bug. Thanks! Ric
