Paste Loses Formats

By christiansona ·
I have a Windows XP PC with Office 2000 on it. When I copy formatted text using ctl-c from one doc and paste it into another using ctl-v, the text does not retain the formats from the original doc. It gets the format from the doc I pasted into. I used to have a PC with Windows 2000 and Office 2000 and it always worked there. Is there an incompatibility in Win XP and Office 2000?

If I try to paste special the only options I get are unformated text and unformatted unicode text. All other option are gone.

In Word go to your Tools menu, Edit tab, deselect Smart Cut & Paste and then you can click the Settings button and select default options for word 97-2000.

Smart cut and paste Enables Word to automatically adjust formatting as you paste text. After you select this check box, you can click Settings to set options for pasting.

You can try Ctrl-C and before you paste it give a Edit|Paste Special command to and select unformatted text or what ever serve you best.
