TIP: Never cut and paste direct from Word!
I have an intel iMac. I also have the latest version of Booksmart. It simply will quit every time I try to copy and paste from outside Booksmart, even if I use textedit or notepad, or Pages for that matter. I made a book last year and it copies and pastes just fine (I just checked). The update is a problem for me, I hope the new version comes out soon as I need to get this book out before the end of the month, and the extra typing is massive.
