moderated Re: copying text from one word doc to another and losing headings

Van Lant, Robin


I just tried working with a file I have headings in. I opened the file, set a temporary placemarker at one heading, then went a few pages down and used the layered command M to mark my place and copied the text.  Interestingly, If I go to the new document and hit Control V to paste it, my headings stuck.  If, instead, I use the context men and paste with “keep source formatting” the headings are stripped.  I really thought the latter approach would be better and I’m quite surprised it strips the headings. 


Are you pasting the content with a Control V?

Hi guys:


The situation is,

I have two word windows open,

One has a copy of my whole textbook with headings in it for easy navigation;

The second window is simply a blank word doc that I will copy a chapter from my book on the first window into.

I notice however, after copy and paste,

In the blank word window, the headings disappeared following the paste into that window?

I only want to copy some chapters into the blank word doc because I only want jaws to continuously read up to the end of that chapter;

If I simply read from within the original textbook window,

Jaws will read past the end of the chapter I wish to stop at.


I hope this doesn’t confuse you.


Please advise as you like.


Mike M.
