I have a table in Word 2000 where every singe cell can contain paragraphs. I copy the texts to another program that accepts simple clipboard texts (not rich-formatted, you can use notepad for tests). But the text loses paragraphs. Is there a setting that will allow to preserve the breaks for simple text clipboard
I don't have Word 2000 any more, but I don't remember such a problem when I was using it.
Please use Word's ¶ button (looks like the greek capital letter Pi) to display the characters you have at the end of the paragraphs. They should all look like ¶ (Pi) if they are end-of-paragraphs.
If the problem is caused by a macro or a plugin, you can check this hypothesis by disabling them :
Go to the Tools menu and select "Macro". In the new sub-menu select "Security". Go to the "Security level" and select "High" : Only signed macros from trusted sources are now allowed to run. Now in the "trusted sources" tab remove all items (if any), and uncheck the box "Trust all installed add-ins and templates".
