It is often simplest to write your message one sentence at a time. This is so
that you can insert lines of text between what you have already written (use
even line numbers for this) and format it afterwards, using
will make your sentences into organized paragraphs.
If you want to insert a line of text which happens to be the same as one of
the editor commands (e.g. "note spell"), use a line number ("note 5 spell").
Each player has two text buffers--the undo buffer and the paste buffer--which
can be used to make text editing easier.
The undo buffer holds the last state of the message prior to the last editor
command, even if it was just "
undo" simply copies this buffer into the current message. This allows copying
of an entire message from one place to another. For example, if you have a
mail message you want to copy into a new note:
The paste buffer is used by the cut, copy, and paste (+) commands. Cut and
copy place portions of the current message into the paste buffer. Paste
indicated. The paste buffer is not cleared when a new message is selected, so
it can be used to move or copy sections from one message to another.
