Beta 4: Saved drafts drops message to plaintext

Hi all-

If I save a draft (and have it set so that they save encrypted) the message is dropped to plaintext. This isn't typically an issue, however in my signature I added a link to my public key. So, the issue is that when it's dropped to plaintext the link is stripped.

Temporarily I've ceased encrypting drafts as a workaround, but I'd prefer to save them encrypted as long as it doesn't strip it down to plaintext.

    Hi Jared,

    we've not seen this problem before.
    Is it possible that you enabled the legacy mode to ease communication with windows users?

    Didn't knowingly enable legacy mode - the only setting I've flipped is not encrypting drafts. I upgraded within the tools from beta 3 to beta 4, but believe I saw the issue under beta 3 as well.

    Hi Jared,

    please update to OS X 10.10.2. Then please download and install our latest nightly build and see if the problem persists. That page also has sig and SHA1 to verify the download.

    So you have disabled the option to encrypt drafts? Or is that setting active?

    All the best, steve

    Disclaimer: This is a development version which has not been thoroughly tested yet - bugs or crashes are to be expected. Thanks for helping us test.
