Has your computer crashed when you tried to copy and paste text from a website into a Word document?
This happens when the webpage has lots of underlying HTML code that Word tries to digest when importing the content.
To do this, use the under-used ‘Paste Special’ feature in Word.
1. Select the text on the web page.
2. Switch to Word.
From the Edit menu, click Paste Special.
3. Choose one of the following:
Unformatted Text if you simply want to add the text (without any formatting) to your Word document or
HTML Format if you want to retain the web page’s content.
4. Click OK.
This imports the text from the web page, which you can now format to your heart’s content.
Of the two options, Unformatted text is the best if you just want the text.
This rarely crashes the PC and will let you continue your work.
