Index cards and the editor - text doesn't mirror?

I assumed that any text that was typed into the editor directly mirrored that on the index card view - that these were simply two different ways to view the same text. That turns out to be false - at least with the set-up I have on my Windows laptop. Is there any way to set the preferences so that this is true, or are the views used for different things entirely?

If you haven’t already, I’d recommend taking a look at the Tutorial project, in which all is explained.

Think of the index card as being paper-clipped to your actual document. The card contains the title and synopsis, but not the document text.
