[REBOL] Re: GVIM Editor

Andreas, as you are trying to learn vim, maybe you'd like to have that command

Many thanks. That does help. But I still can't get my pastes into the right spot. Also, I just remembered that I also have Cygwin installed on this same computer, and a unix version of vim running under Cygwin. Version 6.0.11. So I tried using it, and the result is different but still wrong. The text is now placed after the rebol block I am trying to place the text in. For example: [{I want the text here}]but instead it is placed here. Louis
