"Send Mail Message with Subject" action is creating "Rich Text" emails (should be Plain Text)?


The Send Mail Message with Subject action seems to always generate message bodies that are Rich Text. I'd like to have the choice to set them as Plain Text.

The text that's added looks plain, in that it takes on the default styling that I've chosen. But when I check in the Format menu Make Plain Text is the option at the bottom (which I'm using as the indicator that the message has been setup or converted to Rich Text; am I wrong?).

  • I have Apple Mail set to default to Plain Text. And it does for emails I create from within Mail.
  • I've typed and pasted plain text into the Body field in the action.
  • Looked in the gear icon/action settings menu for a corresponding option.
  • OS: 10.11.6
  • KM: 8.2.2

Funny enough, I found this in the docs:

:!: Note that this Keyboard Maestro form field supports only plain-text. If you want to enter rich-text, you will need to do so after you run this action.


If I'm mistaken, then why does Apple Mail indicate that the messages, created by this action, are currently in Rich Text?

If I have this right, then:

Is there an option I'm missing or is this a Feature Request (i.e.: Be able to specify Plain Text or Rich Text specifically)?
