Hi.
I cannot see the 'Source' button. Has it changed since you wrote this answer?

I attached a screenshot of my computer, Yes it is still there. It is on the far right on the toolbar(the toolbar with bold, underline, hyperlink, paste from word, etc.)

Now my question may look a little silly...
As the matter with 'Source' button became clear, it prompts another question:
Why I haven't got that many buttons in my editor? (see picture) Is it the linux case?

Linux shouldn't be the problem, I'm running Mac OSX Mountain Lion and it looks exactly the same as on Windows Vista. Your OS shouldn't make any difference.

I just remembered, I won a pro membership, maybe it is part of the pro membership thing?

Another possibility: maybe the reason for so poor 'rich editor' is, that I haven't posted any instructalbe yet?

Staff don't have to go through the regular editor/parser interface.
