Is there a way to pin the text editor? When I copy and paste text the text editor disappears and makes it impossible to edit.

Correct. Even if you weren't carrying over other formatting, you'd still need to re-apply the hyperlinks regardless, because our system needs to have that setup for tracking rewrites.

Hello @SashiG ,

 

Does it not appear when you click off to the side or into another block, and then back into the text block?

It will appear in a new text block. But it won't appear to allow be to edit the text that I copy and pasted unless I also lose the links. It also doesn't feel that it happens all the time, but it happens enough to be frustrating.

Are you copying in the text without clearing all formatting beforehand? In general, I would advise against trying to copy in formatting from outside programs. Problematic formatting can cause issues when pasted into the editor, so it needs to be cleared anyway prior to pasting in. Once pasted in plainly, you can then apply the formatting, bulleting, etc. as desired. Clearing any prior formatting by using a plain-text program like Notepad can also help avoid problematic formatting and compatibility issues.

So I would have to manually apply any links, etc?
