I’m used to being able to copy articles with text and images from web pages into MSWord 2010. However, whenever I try to do it in Writer, all I get is text along with empty boxes. What am I doing wrong?
Try to insert as Paste Special (HTML), little triangle beside Paste Icon or CTRL+SHIFT+V.
Thanks but I already tried that. Didn’t work.
Can you tell some example websites where the copy/paste proceeding does not work, for better examining?
All websites that have images and text.
I stumbled on a “fix” today that pretty much allows me to copy/paste web articles with text, images, and hyperlinks into Writer. I created a template from a blank .docx file made in Word then used the template to paste a copied web article. There are some minor glitches that have to be corrected but it’s much faster than pasting in unformatted text, then restoring formatting, images, and hyperlinks one at a time.
