Ooops, sorry.

I think that this answers my question. Right now my file size is quite
small, and likely this is the reason I'm not having any problem with editing
text.  Neither do I anticipate having large files, for now, as the
structure/design of my 'newsletter' won't require it. But I'll keep an eye
on it as things develop. Thanks to all for the responses.
