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.
