Copying content from other sources
You can copy content from another message, document, or an external file created in another application. You can also copy text from web pages. There are two ways to do this:
•       copy the content to the clipboard and paste it into the body of your new object as you normally do in your operating system
•       select the content, then Control-drag (Windows, Linux) or Option-drag (Mac) it to the body of your new object.
If you just drag content from an unsent message, a document which you are allowed to edit, or an external file, you will move it instead of copying it.
If you want to copy all content from an external file that is in a format FirstClass recognizes, you can drag the file, unopened, to the body of your new object. This copies the content rather than moving it, so the external file remains unchanged.
You can also drag a file in a format not recognized by FirstClass into your content. In this case, FirstClass will display a placeholder.
To control the format in which FirstClass pastes content:
1       Copy the content to the clipboard.
2       Click where you want to paste the content.
3       Choose Edit > Paste Special.
4       Choose the format you want.
You can also paste copied content as plain text (no formatting). Any embedded files are represented by their file names. To paste as plain text, choose Edit > Paste Plain Text.

Inserting horizontal lines
You can insert a horizontal line to visually break up content or to force content below the horizontal line to align with the left margin.
To insert a horizontal line, choose Edit > Insert > Insert Horizontal Line. A line is drawn below the current cursor position, and the cursor and any subsequent content drop below this line.
After you have inserted a horizontal line, you can change its appearance.

Inserting page breaks
To insert a page break, choose Edit > Insert > Insert Page Break.
