I second this endorsement, although I offer one caveat: Some Microsoft products do not play nice with this tool. For example, if you have HovText on, and you try to copy the contents of a cell in Excel, it does not copy and the cell does not even stay selected. Quite threw me the first few times I encountered it.
Fortunately, HovText has an option to set up your own keyboard shortcut to turn it on and off. So, when working in Excel, I just toggle HovText off, and all is well with the world. To bring it back home, though, it works marvelously well in copying text from other products, such as Word, into FrameMaker. Chuck -----Original Message----- Subject: RE: Paste Special The best option I've come across to achieve this is to use a third party tool called Hovtext (www.hovtext.com). Its simple, easy to use and free. It works for all Windows apps, not just Frame specific. Highly recommended. -Pete
