I have just started my page design and have watched all the tutorials, but when I am trying to write text in paragraph form the little text box only holds a few words, so I know I am missing something very big here....do I have to copy and paste the actual text paragraphs I want in my site or is there a way to just type them in like wordpad or a wordprocessor? Thanks in advance.

Hi you can stretch the little text box, by grabbing on the little blue handles you see .... it can be the size of the entire page if you like, there is no limit .... you can also copy and paste if that is easier, but stretch the box by the blue handles (I am sure there is a name for those handles, but that is what I can them, lol) .... just place your cursor on the right side and stretch to the width, the length will go along with your typing ...

Holly told you how to size the box. So I'll address the text itself.

I copy and paste all the time into the text boxes - but be careful to check it all after - as the word programs can throw in some funny stuff sometimes. But they are great for checking spelling.
