Source Mode

When you're in editor, the default mode is Visual Mode. When you copy/paste something from another document onto the editing window, you want to switch into Source Mode before adding a story, so that only the text of the story is copied-and-pasted to editor. With Visual Mode, both the text and the font/formatting of the original document is copied, which can make for some really bad formatting errors! In your editing preferences, switch the option panel labelled "preferred editor" to "source editor".

Thank you for your time.
