Re: Paste Special in Word 2016

Kevin, When you select text in a document, you selected the text and all of it's atributes, i.e. the font, size, orientation alignment, and color. When you hit Control+V to paste the selected text into a document, all of these atributes are pasted along with the text. When you use Paste Special, you have a menu of choices as to how you want the text to appear in your document. You can choose text only, which will insert the text into your document allowing it to take on the formatting of your document, or you can choose to insert the selected text along with its original formatting. HTH.

What is paste special versus just paste?

IN word, the hotkey is control+alt+v.
The following is from the Office support page after searching for "past
special in word 2016."
Using Paste Special

Like pictures and other objects, text in a presentation has its own
formatting - such as typeface, color, and font size. When you copy text that
has different formatting into an Office program, the program, such as
PowerPoint or Word, automatically reformats that text to match the text of
the destination. However, you can use Paste Special to maintain the original
formatting or paste it as a link or a picture, for example.

list of 3 items
1. Cut or copy the slide, picture, text, or object that you want to paste.

2. Click in your Office file at the place you wish to insert that item.

3. On the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, click the arrow under Paste,
click Paste Special, and then choose one of the options below.

Paste Special menu

Tip: If you'd prefer to use the keyboard you can press CTRL+ALT+V to invoke
Paste Special.

HTH,
Richard

Hi: I'm using word 2016 and Jaws 2018. Recently, I noticed that there
doesn't appear to be a paste special in word any more. I hit
alt+h and down arrow to paste, then I use alt+downarrow and there
are options like kept text only, but not paste special.
Any suggestions?
