Why does formatting sometimes get messed up when you cut and paste text? And what is that thing that appears at the end of the last sentence every time you paste--like a fly returning to honey.
That thing--the Paste Options button--is your friend, a worker bee and not a fly whose only job is to follow your formatting instructions. Learning how it works keeps you from wasting time manually formatting pasted text.
Click the down-arrow on the Paste Options button and you'll see a menu with icons that lets you format copied text in different ways. The options you'll see depend on where you're cutting and pasting from and to, e.g., from within or between documents. Roll your mouse over the icons and you can see how your pasted text will look before you click.
These are the four most common options:
Word gives you other options for copying and pasting things such as bulleted or numbered lists, or hyperlinks. Plus, it lets you define how you want cutting and pasting to work most of the time (click Set Default Paste under the icons)--including getting rid of the Paste Options button if it still seems like a pesky fly.
Could you please fix pasting from Internet Explorer? Everytime I paste something from the web, word freezes up while it "contacts the server for information"
My 'Paste Option Button' has gone missing! I do not know what settings I messed up. I want it back please. Without it Copy-Paste actions do not behave normally - when copying table rows, in paste I only get the contents with tab and not as a table row(s).
All of a sudden.......... Microsoft Word will not keep source formatting when I copy and paste. Also, the paste options button does not appear. I have checked all the relevant boxes in the 'Word Options' 'Advanced' tab but it still doesnt work!! Can you help?
On one of my WIndows 7 computers, Word 2010 allows pasting with retained formatting; on the other it only pastes with Text Only option. No settings are different. I NEED to paste with formatting! Any ideas?
My wife is trying to creat a document using cut and paste. She keeps getting a line that she doesn't want, any ideas? She is going to print the doc on fabric for a quilt
Can you tell me a little bit more? I'm the Microsoft author who wrote the post. Where does she get the line she doesn't want? Below a sentence? Above?
Here's an easy way to paste without formatting anywhere in Windows, or Mac OS X for that matter...
So, now we have to do one more click to do the work. This is just one more case of the software trying to second-guess what I want to do - or me having to take steps so that it doesn't. I for one would vote for fewer features that could be operated more quickly. This would also improve reliability.
This comment is colored by the fact that Word 2007 and later is making me absolutely crazy. And I can't get a straight answer from anyone about whether it's because I'm running it on XP Pro, or the wrong processor.
MS did a wonderful thing by teaching the Office tools to have a common look and feel, and gave the abiltiy to move mail, documents and calendar items interchangeably. Since then, the incremental changes have added little value and costed us reliabilty and slowed useage.
