How are you performing the copy and paste functions? Mouse macros? Keyboard shortcuts? Program menus?
Are you getting any error messages? Can you replicate the problem?
Yes it is a simple mouse right click
And not only I may replicate the problem but it always occurs with the described copy/paste pattern!
I do not have any errors or "misfires"
MS word to MS word = OK
MS to editor and reverse process = OK
Web to MW word or editor = OK
MS word back to editor = refuse to paste from word and serves the previous copied from the web!
So it's pasting from MS Word to UltraEdit that is causing the problem? I have Word and UE, and there's no problem pasting for me.
Do you have problems pasting from Word to any other text editors like NotePad or WordPad?
Do you have the latest updates for these programs?
Ah you too use UE!
Great tool BTW
It is only the chain of events that triggers it
I also tried to paste in notepad or the other one
but same results
It acts like if the copied from the web could not be overwritten when pasting in anything but words
Which kind of makes sense since Words sort of auto format and respects a web text copied
If you may not duplicate my problem then it is a local problem and I guess tied to B-tooth
1) copy a text from a web page
2) paste it in words
3) edit a few stuffs
4) copy it from words
5) paste it in UE
if you are able to paste what has just been copied instead of serving again the very first web copy
Then it really is local - but which kind of “evil” set up does trigger it?
I don't know UE but do know the polymorphic nature of copy/paste can confuse and especially in Word, since it appears to copy objects not just text.
Proof of that would be paste into Notepad, which can only accept text.. copy from Notepad, paste into Word, and copy from Word to UE.

David, you are correct I exactly did as per your post
and it works fine!
At least if needed I can use that many steps route.
But it still is not clear in my mind, what have we proved; where do we go from there?
We've shown it isn't obvious to everyone what M$ Word is doing, we've apparently determined you're copying text from sites that aren't ones you've coded.
Incidentally you could probably use [paste special] to paste unformatted text, or?possibly set a macro to paste like that.
If it is one site you're looking at then right-click and view the source to better determine where the text is, and how it might be updated directly.
I'd suggest the best way forward is to not use M$..
Disclaimer: everything obvious in this post is covered by patents pending.. duh
Well, you know that assuming is "mother of Sc... .."
I am not copying "text from site I didn't code"
Did you read the first post?
If I see something I do not like I am used to deal with it my way: Directly from web to MS word
Far away from assumed plagiarism :)
Sorry, I wasn't trying to suggest plagiarism, only that you appear to not be copying from code you created directly. If it's UE and you go back to UE later, you are doing the same but I think that's allowed.
