^V=paste isn't wordstar. There's no "paste" in wordstar (since wordstar
has no clipboard), and ^V is usually the insert mode toggle. Maybe you
confused it with the "move" command, ^KV?
^V actually comes from the Mac, where it was Command-V (early Macs had
Command instead of Control; modern Macs have both). On an US keyboard, Z,
X, C and V (mapped onto undo, cut, copy and paste) are side by side in the
lower left. They do, however, collide with the wordstar directional
functions (char movement ^S, ^D, ^E, ^X; word movement ^A, ^F; page
movement ^R, ^C; scrolling ^W, ^Z; just look at an US keyboard layout to
find out which is which).
Joe is a fine editor, though.
