I felt like you till I discovered how to change the "Mode" file within
StrongEd so that Ctrl-XCV work in the "standard" way that I'm used to
in other apps. (Can send you my amended file if you email me.)
Then I added StrongEd to the apps that load automatically every time I
boot the machine, in order to force myself to tackle the learning
curve, and I'm glad I did. The ascent turned out to be not that bad.
A few puzzles remain, such as a StrongEd keystroke to match Edit's
handy Ctrl-F6 to un-split lines.
