Hi All,

I have a problem with copy/paste text from Word doc.

I use Paste->From Word from Visual Editor menu. New window to paste the text appears.

When i insert the text into the window - text looks correct.

Then i clik 'Ok' and the text appears in Conten area.

BUT: some parts of the text dissapear - especially names of universities, cities, states, etc.

Sometimes rest paragraph text disappears too.

As result i have to match the text between word and content area...

How can i fix that?

Thank you!

Hi Olga

Could you please provide a sample of the Word doc (just a part)  that gets problems?

You can send it to vvv(at)composite(dot)net.

Thanks for the sample. I tried it but can't reproduce that behavior.  I don't have Word 2003 handy to test on it as well.

For now I can only suggested a workaround:

If you care not for keeping MS Word's formatting, you can try and paste the text from Word as plain text:

Paste > As Simple Text
