Text formatting when pasting in MS 6

I liked it better when pasted text would use the destination format (like what MS 5 does) instead of the source.

If you Paste using the Right Click menu option, it picks up the formatting of the destination. If you Paste using the Keyboard Shortcut of CTRL+V, you do not.

Thanks Loretta for providing the shortcut.

We are looking to improve this so that Copy/Paste works the same. But we still have users that need to be able to keep the source formatting. When all said and done, Copy/Paste will work the same and for those that need to keep the formatting, we will most likely use Ctrl+Shift+V.

I need to look back at my workflow, but I think the only thing that has worked for me is to control-A control-V into Notepad, then control-A control-C the content in Notepad, and then pasting into MS.

A right click "paste as" option of "Text Only" should always be available. I know that's not that simple with a mixed MS-Windows and OS-X codebase...

Walter,

If you are using the mouse, right click/Paste will keep the formatting of the Cue. If you use the keyboard, CTRL+V keeps the formatting of the document.

The "Paste as Plain Text" option may be a good option. I will pose that to the developers.
