This design flaw was extensively discussed in the previous millenium.
And I've got special work-around-code from P.Easthope, for it.
-> System.Directory *Mail*\d == ...
Mail.Obj 12.11.2002 18:27:36 79362
TextMail.Obj 12.11.2002 18:27:43 20099
At more than 3 times the size of TextMail, Mail is a disaster.

Can A2 do:
d/l a 84 page *pdf,
convert, eg. like standard `pdf2txt`,
view the *pdf and Aos <textFile> TOGETHER on screen,
in order to edit the AosFile, for line-len etc. differences,
and while edit/checking the AosFile, intelligently colour the
text, to add extra 'knowledge' to the text,
and extract, perhaps by <screen capture> any graphical
image from the *.pdf,
and insert this to the AosFile/Gadget/Document,
which can in future be instantly loaded and 'evolved'
and from which eg. text can directly be copyPasted to email ??
