More Post-Editing Tips...

preWhat the very handy PRE, DIV and BLOCKQUOTE options do.

(These options are found when you click Formats, then "Blocks" in the Editor.)


The "block" formatting options are things you can "do" to a block of text. 

The  Pre option turns your highlight text into "Mono-spaced PRE-formatted text."  This allows you to precisely align your texts to make a quick columns using your space bar or your Tab key.

Applying the  Div option to highlighted text un-does the pre-formatting.
 ("Div" is the name of the html code which marks a "division or sector of text for formatting.)

See examples below.

Blockquote, indents the text block you have highlighted and puts a box around it.

Paragraph "un-does" blockquote, div, and pre-formatting, It's the equivalent of "return to normal."



PRE Example
See the perfectly aligned columns? That's because I applied the PRE option.

<pre>
Jack:   Hello. How are you?
Jill:   I'm great.  Thanks for asking.

Jack: Column 1: Column 2:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

</pre>

Notice also how the text you apply <PRE> to also gets a nice blue background.  

Selecting the <DIV> option returns your PRE-formatted text to it's normal "proportional font spacing" code (where all spaces are the same width). DIV "un-does" the Pre format option.

Example of returning the Pre text to standard spacing by highlighting the text, then selecting DIV from the Block options:
Jack: Hello. How are you?
Jill: I'm great. Thanks for asking.

Jack: Column 1: Column 2:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
