To help make editing easier, there are three buttons above the text box that use your computer’s clipboard:
There are also three mode buttons below the text-box:
Design – This mode is the basic mode for editing in.

Preview – This mode disables the cut, copy and paste buttons and prevents editing. It is ideal for proof-reading text to prevent accidental edits.
