FWIW, I would still recommend using a third-party format-stripper, such as 
HovText (which is a free utility) when copying and pasting from Word into 
Frame, especially.

The reason? The "Paste as Text" option in Frame does not necessarily strip out 
all hidden Word formatting relics, so you can still have problems, as we have 
discovered the hard way. HovText does a superb job of making sure *all* you get 
is the text you want.

HTH,
Chuck

Phil, Art, Richard, et al.:

  If the file format order is as listed, doesn't FM then paste even FM items as 
unformatted text? I'm wondering if there's a way to order those formats so that 
if it's FM source, it pastes FM but uses TEXT otherwise. Would the following 
work?

  ClipboardFormatsPriorities=FILE, TEXT, OLE 2, EMF, META, DIB, BMP, MIF, RTF

  ...or does FILE include the formatting, etc., that would be on the clipboard 
from other non-FM programs?

  Also, would this affect pasting graphics?

  (Sorry if those are stupid questions...)

  Thanks,
  Rene

Open the maker.ini file (in \Program Files\Adobe\FrameMaker7.2).

Find this line:

ClipboardFormatsPriorities=FILE, OLE 2, EMF, META, DIB, BMP, MIF, RTF, TEXT

Change it to:

ClipboardFormatsPriorities=TEXT, FILE, OLE 2, EMF, META, DIB, BMP, MIF, RTF

Greetings,

Sometime ago, someone posted a lovely little trick where you can change 
something, somewhere and configure your paste settings.

By default, if you copy something from Word and paste it into Frame, you get a 
Word object or something. I want to paste text. I edited a file somewhere, 
based off of suggestions from this list, and fixed it. Now I can't find the 
setting again. I'm having trouble finding my login for the FrameUsers site, so 
can't search the archives.

If someone who remembers this setting would be so kind as to post it again, I'd 
really appreciate it.

I'm now using FrameMaker 7.1p114, if that makes a difference.


Thanks!

Zo?
