If I remember, the last time I copied stuff from the RL it didn't do that. Not sure if I had MS 2016 last time. I restored MS to factory settings, but that hasn't fixed it. Anything else you think it might be?

If you right-click in MS word you have a choice of format you can paste in. Does that make a difference?

Or try paste to Wordpad, see if that is the same.

When you do a cut and paste, there are three options if you right click to paste  Keep Source Formatting, Merge Formatting, and Keep Text Formatting.  Hover over each of the choices and a preview drop window lets you see what you will get. 

 

If you merely Control V to copy you get the Keep Source Formatting (default), however immediately following the paste is a small window showing a clipboard if you hit the down arrow the three options available with the appear.  That window disappears when you type either a modification in the copied text or anything after it.

 

Hope this helps, I wasn't able to recreate the problem so I can't be positive that this would solve your particular problem.


Thus says the LORD, "Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, (Jeremiah 9:23-24a)

Hi Tim,

 

That was helpful anyway. Nice to know for future reference. However, my problem persists. It's only with e-Sword this happens. Am I right in saying that this is not normal? I remember a time when it pasted in without the italics.

JPG, yeah I tried that. Wordpad wipes all the formatting, and there's usually some formatting I like to keep. This particular work makes use of italics, so when I highlight all and then remove italics it removes everything including the italics I want to keep.

What module are you copying from?  I'll take a shot at recreating the problem so I can take a good run at solving it.

 

Most of my e-Sword cut and past is from the Bible, Commentary and Dictionary areas so I use the macros for it.

 

I did try doing a quick cut and paste from one of the more heavily formatted modules have, but it was a commentary (Guzik's) since it is in the form of an outline.  I should like to try it on a reference book, but the ones I have very little in the way of special formatting.
