Do I have to anything special when copying and pasting word into FM 12. I understand it should be plain text or it can retain a lot of Word garbage.

Does FM 12 take care of this or do I need to save or paste it as plain text??

In addition to the suggestions from others, you could try PureText by Steve Miller:


"PureText is basically equivalent to opening Notepad, doing a PASTE, followed by a SELECT-ALL, and then a COPY. The benefit of PureText is performing all these actions with a single Hot-Key and having the result pasted into the current window automatically."

The default hot-key combination is the Windows key + V, which works well for me, as the CTRL key is right next to the Windows key. Changing from a regular Paste to an unformatted Paste is as easy as moving my little finger one key over. I find this more flexible than making the permanent change in FM's ini file, and it also works when bringing content into MS Word, which otherwise annoyingly adopts whatever HTML tag comes along with material copied from the web.
