I am using Mathematica 2.2.3 on windows 3.1.
I am trying to copy an output cell into an input 
cell. The output is something like this:

2 + 3 x - x

The problem is the power 2 of the last term.
When I copy the output cell and paste it into an 
input cell, the power 2 appears in front of the
rest of the terms! Surprisingly, if I change the 
format of the output cell into an input cell 
using the pull down menu:
        ( Format->Cell->Input ) 
only its font is changed into bold! Is it supposed 
to be like this? How can I fix this without manually 
editing the cell.

PS: I have a few years of experience with 
Mathematica on NeXT, and I have been doing 
these quite often without a problem. Why 
different versions of Mathematica on 
different machines do not behave the same?
