automatically remove/adapt format of pasted text

Post by gyrus » Wed Sep 12, 2018 7:11 pm

I'd like to know if there is a way to change all text pasted to myinfo
documents into a specific style/format or font.

Thank you very much for your help in advance.

You can do this by first changing the style in the text editor to the desired one and then using Edit > Paste Advanced > Paste Text.

thank you for your quick reply Petko. This works very well - just now though i noticed something.

i am currently pasting a lot of text which already contains formatting like fonts, bold text etc.

i'd like to change the font, while maintaining the cursive/bold parts of the text.
But wehn pasting from some sources, MyInfo displays the text in a "default font" which does not look like the source at all. When i try to change the font, only certain fonts can be applied. I can apply Arial via a Style - but then i loose all preexisting formatting.

I can work around this problem by pasting the source text to word first, changing the font to arial and then pasting it to MyInfo. But this is a very cumbersome process.

I suspect this is a problem with pasting embedded fonts.
