comment Copy and paste without tracked changes in MS Office 2013
The CMS is just a PHTML file, open for editing in PHPStorm, so I doubt that PHPStorm is doing or has ever done anything to the clipboard's contents on paste.

comment Copy and paste without tracked changes in MS Office 2013
It is a huge pain. Badly set up CMS is what it boils down to. I do search to find the right general places already, but we're talking dozens of minor changes to contract language per page - often just a couple words per place. That was what made the copy and paste from the "showing markup" so handy when it was working to only copy the "final" portion - I could very easily go from one to the other without losing my place, etc. Toggling between modes really screws up my workflow as the page reflows and I lose my place :P Copying and pasting to an intermediary word doc seems best so far

Technically yes, except I'd need to do that dozens of times. The task is mirroring changes from a tracked Word document to an HTML document (for various reasons this is the way it has to be done). What's frustrating is that I've done it previously with no issue... I don't understand why it's no longer working that way :(

As I pointed out, I need to be able to see what the deleted text was. This is so that I can find it in the plaintext copy and overwrite it with a paste of the amended text.

Correct, I want to display the changes (ie, strikethrough stuff) in Word but copy only the final version of the document's text, and paste it into a plaintext file.

Well, as a workaround I can paste it into a proxy Word document, then cut the pasted text and paste it into the plaintext... but I'd much rather be able to copy and paste without that extra step :(

Unfortunately that hides the strike through text, and I need to be able to see what's being deleted so I can find it in the plaintext version.

Yes, that works ... between Word documents. How can I get it to only copy the non strike-through text when I paste into a non-Word document, tho? I definitely have been able to do this in the past.

Tracked changes is on in the source document - the destination document is actually a text file. I haven't tried copying and pasting from a word doc with track changes on to a second word doc with track changes off, I will give that a go and report back.

@kelly: No, I do not have track changes turned off - the document I am copying to is actually a plaintext file (.txt). However, copying and pasting to another word doc produces the same effect.

comment Bad hard drive recovery, odd drive recognition issue
Thanks, but I'm afraid you missed some details. It's not an external drive, it's a regular SATA HD. As I mentioned, I've already tried using a USB dock (two, in fact) with no luck - the OS recognized the HD for a minute, then suddenly disappears it.

I've never seen a situation where it comes up but won't stay up before, tho... hence the question.

Yah, that's kind of what I am afraid of :P I've heard some people have success with transplanting a controller, but it's kind of old so finding a dupe would be a pain.
