WP: Pasting formatted text sometimes loses formatting

0 users found this article helpful


Pasting formatted text intermittently pastes without expected formatting


If text is inadvertently pasted within a style code, the text will lose all formatting and assume the formatting of the style.


Hit Undo (toolbar undo icon, Ctrl+Z on keyboard or Edit menu > Undo)

Click outside the style / further away from the styled text and re-paste

If unsure, enable Reveal Codes (View > Reveal Codes or Alt+F3) to see if the insertion point is within a style.


This has been seen in files with many styled areas in small spaces such as are created using the Monthly Calendar under File > New from Project.
