If you copy text from a field in LC 8 and try to paste into Apple Mail, it
inserts a blank line after each line (except empty lines.. so it totally
destroys your line formatting). If you paste it from LC into a different
Apple program, eg. Pages, it is fine. Moreover, you can now recopy it from
Pages and paste it into mail and it is now fixed.  So there is a ready
work-around… just pass everything through a different apple program. But
it’s an extra pain. LC 7 and LC 6 do not have this problem.
