Possible Bug: Pasting in text from an email

Recommended Posts

When pasting in some text from an email Publisher suddenly starts to behave strangely, ignoring the boundaries of the textframe. InDesign is working as expected. This is what's happening in Publisher:

It behaves normally in InDesign:

That probably indicates some odd formatting that got picked up from the copied text. To see what is causing it we would probably need to see the contents of the Character studio panel and possibly the Paragraph studio panel, if you can also provide screenshots of those.

By the way, I have discovered that this only happens when I paste directly into a Publisher document. If I draw a Text Frame first it all appears normally as it should be.

When I have problems like this, I always paste the text into a plain-text editor first to flush out any rogue formatting and then re-paste it into the application I want to use, which usually fixes things.

When you reach a certain age, you want to save energy and time (time gets precious), so a direct insertion of text without strange formatting and without re-pasting would be nice. ;)

But perhaps Paste Without Format could work for Streaming T and for you?

In the end it was just me missing the "No break" check box under Character/Positioning and Transform. It was "On" (checked). By unchecking it the behaviour of the text returned to normal. Thanks Joachim_L.

Case Closed! :-)
