I'm stuck using word 2007 at the office. It has options for retaining formatting, pasting as plain text, and pasting text to match the destination's formatting. That last option is the one I want, but word is blatantly ignoring it.
I copy some text from a PDF, paste into word, and it retains the PDF's formatting... even though I went into options --> advanced --> changed all the dropdowns to "Match Destination Formatting". It also ignores "text only" option... It retains the exact mix of bold, italic, normal text & fonts.
I can work around it by pasting to a plain text file, then pasting into word. Or I can do paste special --> unformatted text. But this is so irritating... I just want to ctrl+V and not hassle with it every single time. Is there a better fix?
