If a straight paste (Ctrl+v) pastes only text, maybe you've changed the ClipboardFormatsPriorities setting in maker.ini to make text the preferred format. That's how mine, below, is set up: ClipboardFormatsPriorities=TEXT, MIF, RTF, FILE, OLE 2, EMF, META, DIB, BMP I don't even recall what the default order is (I think it had TEXT last). Personally, I want to be sure that anything coming from the Windows Clipboard (i.e., not from one FM doc to another) comes in without any formatting or baggage -- more often than not, it's from Word. :-) If your ClipboardFormatsPriorities setting looks like mine, try moving TEXT to the end. That being said, I share Art's skepticism about your use of two instances of FM. Richard ------ Richard G.
