Cut and paste from text editors causes layout problems


Hi all,

I use a text editor (Wordgrinder or Nano usually) for typing blogs, emails, etc. however I have a problem when I cut and paste the text.


Here is an example
of
how it comes out sometimes
and I
really don't know why.


It seems to be a problem with justification or font. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong and how to fix it?

Yes I know I could use a WYSIWYG programme but I do much prefer a text editor if possible.

Thanks so much,
Greg

vi is the great grand daddy of editors
i think it started in the `70 and the " oldtimers " get used to it it keeps getting worked on , and so on and so on

google - vi, vim , gvim

Hi!
I don't see that example of how it comes out sometimes.Also,I'm wondering how do you cut and paste the text?
