Issue in Copy/paste formatting !

Postby FriedL » Wed Jul 23, 2014 5:25 am


When I copy something from a source with different formatting than my current document and paste it, can I paste
it with the current formatting of my document instead of the formatting it came with from the original source ?

Thanks in Advance,

You can use (instead of plain "paste") Edit > Paste Special, as unformatted text. That will remove all formatting from the source and apply the
formatting in effect where you paste the content.

That will toss all formatting coming from the source and you'll have to re-create any formatting you want to keep.

i Hope this will helpful for you.
