Hi, Mike. Yes, what Mike says is correct. Open Word. Open Options with ALT plus F, followed by T.

Navigate to Advanced, by arrowing down, do not press ENTER. This will throw you out of settings, back to your document.

TAB to a setting which says something like,


Pasting between documents: Combo box‑
Keep Source Formatting (Default)


This is what you want.

TAB to OK, and press ENTER.

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


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.
