One thing that I find quite annoying about Version 7 is that the regular
copy and paste functions from the context menu no longer work in many
situations.  I'm so used to using the context menu that I keep falling into
this trap. Then Helen Read kindly and patiently reminds me that I should use
Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V instead and that appears to work properly. But both
methods should work equally well and I hope this behavior is restored in the
next update.


One feature of Inline Cells is that they have the characteristic
ShowStringCharacters -> True. But I consider an Inline Cell as more or less
equivalent to an Input or Output Cell. After all, they can be evaluated. So
why shouldn't they have the same characteristics as Input/Output cells, and
specifically have ShowStringCharacters -> False?
