I find it is also helpful to export the files from MacClade in some format
such as NBRF.  This makes it much easier to cut and paste (using Word as
the previous poster suggested).  

In general, however, I find it best to use my PAUP and MacClade programs
in conjunction with SeqApp.  SeqApp is an incredible (FREE!!!!) little
program made by Don Gilbert that makes sequence editing, multiple sequence
alignment, and format conversion just like playing a video game!  (Well,
almost ;-)

You can find SeqApp by gophering to ftp.bio.indiana.edu  (then surf around
in their software archives).  Cheers.
