After my recent article Managing Your Windows 7 User ID, I received an email from Robin in England that said:
Your tip on managing your Windows 7 User ID was excellent and it also works in Windows 8 pro.
Thanks for this tip and all the tips you have given.
This was followed shortly afterwards by another email from Robin:
Sorry to bother you again but I thought your tip on Managing Your Windows 7 User ID was so good that I copied and pasted it into a Word 2010 document. Unfortunately none of the graphics printed into my Word document.
Any suggestions on how to paste your article into a Word document including the graphics.
Also, I wanted to add a comment to the article but I could not make out how to add the comment!
I wrote back to say that I was glad that Robin liked the article, especially since I was having a hard time figuring out a topic for an article.
I did some testing to try to duplicate Robin’s problem. However, copying and pasting into Word 2007 works fine from me. I tried copying from Thunderbird (my main email program) and also from Outlook 2007 (I have a test copy that goes to a specific email address that gets picked up by my Outlook 2007 program but not my Thunderbird program). Both attempts worked perfectly.
Ultimately, I think the problem probably has to do with either Robin’s email program or with Word 2010, possibly a setting in one or the other.
I add the newsletter articles to the web site fairly quickly, if you can’t copy from one of my email newsletters, just wait a few days and check my web site. I typically post the newsletter articles on my web site during the following week.
