separate - rich text - copy
This is the "separate - rich text - copy" section. The left-side text area is to contain only non-scrambled data. The right-side text area is to contain only a single scrambled section (typically corresponding to the non-scrambled data in the other text area). You can choose the settings/tools tab. Or you can choose one of the “from where” tabs. Once you have chosen a “from where” tab, you will be allowed to specify how to copy, where to copy it, and what to copy:
"help" - to get assistance.
"settings/tools" - to enter your personal preferences for doing copying in the separate rich text areas.
"from text area" - to copy data from one of the separate rich text areas. Check the status of the left-side non-scrambled rich text area by clicking "Refresh" in its panel. Similarly check the status of the right-side scrambled plain text area. The first number is how many characters are in the text area. The second tells the current cursor position within the text. The third is how many characters are currently selected (highlighted). Knowing the status helps you choose what to copy.
"from clipboard" - to copy from data you have already pasted into the system clipboard (via a prior "cut" or "paste" operation). Check the status of the clipboard by clicking "Refresh" in the clipboard panel. The three panes tell whether the clipboard has rich text, plain text, or HTML. Knowing the status helps you choose what to copy.
"from file" - to be able to choose a file that will be copied to the area of your choosing.
Note that if you copy plain text into the rich text area, it will not be completely "plain". Plain text simply carries no formatting with it. However, when you paste plain text into a location that has formatting (such as into the rich text area), the plain text will take upon it the formatting of the text next to it. If there is no formatting next to it, it will take upon it the default formatting of the rich text area.
