Lately whenever i copy paste something (in particular within Office) by default i lose all formatting. To copy the formatting have to retry copying the content several times before it works. So far i have observed this in several different Office applications (Word 2013, Excel 2013, OneNote 2013). It also occurs when i copy paste within a Citrix VDI running Office & Outlook 2010.
Normally there is no way to tell before i Paste the content if it has retained the formatting however I have recently noticed the following when using Excel:
- When i first copy some cells the region i have copied will have a dashed border.
- The dashed border almost always vanishes a second after i have done the copy.
- If the dashed border is present when i paste the content then the formatting is retained.
- If the dashed border is not present when i paste the content then the formatting is lost.
Any ideas what is causing this behavior and how to fix it? The behavior is the same if I use Ctrl+C & Ctrl+V or if i use the mouse (Right-Click Copy & Paste).
