When I select some text from the Internet, right-click → copy, and then try to paste it into a Word 2013 document, I get a small black icon as a picture, but no text. I've also tried Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V; it does the same. Yet when I do this into my email, it works perfectly.  Is there some setting in Word that's preventing my text from being pasted? I don't get any other option to paste, only paste (no paste special, etc.)

  • can you post an image please. Have you tried copying different things? What if you copy from an email into Word? – Julian Knight Jun 17 '15 at 6:13
  • Most likely its a font thing, and the font you're using in Word doesn't have the symbol you're trying to copy in. Try a different font, or follow the suggestions that Julian Knight gives. – darthbith Jun 17 '15 at 18:42
