Aloha all,

The following two lines from the cua.el documentation

(require 'cua)
(CUA-mode t)

when placed in Preferences.el result in this error

An error has occurred while loading `~/Library/Preferences/Aquamacs  
Emacs/Preferences.el (or .elc)':

Symbol's function definition is void: CUA-mode

How does one activate cua-mode in Preferences.el?

All the best,
