1075 - How do I get rid of Word formatting when pasting into Authorware?

by - Joseph Ganci

I'm curious if this is unique to my machine or a problem others have encountered. After a few cut and paste events between Word and AW (not just 6, has happened in 5.1, 5.2 as well), I end up pasting in RTF codes instead of the text. Now granted, the text I needed is buried in the RTF code, but there's a lot to be cut down at times. Is there a reason this is happening? Or is there something I can do to make this "less-frequent"?

If you just want the text, paste it into Notepad first, then copy from there and paste into AW. This will strip it of all formatting and will take on whatever formatting you have already applied in Authorware.
