How are you trying to copy the text from your word document, @city-frame?

I presume you selected all the text before you did the Copy operation? If you're getting an image it sounds like you didn't actually get text copied.

Is there some strong reason you're using copy/paste rather than saving a .docx file and then using FIle > Place?

I select only parts of the text (than ctrl+C) and want to paste the parts in a new layout in a Magazine … 

i think it is a Windows-OS-Problem, because when in copy textparts from a web page (for example) i get another screenshot by pasting into Publisher ...

the "Transfer" of the clipboard-TEXT "get lost" into a screenshot - between the different aplications ...

What options do you get in Publisher if you use Edit > Paste Special?

Do you have problems pasting into any other application?

Do you have any 3rd-party clipboard manager applications installed?

- Paste Spezial : "insert as: Device Independent Bitmap"

- Paste Text into Excel: i get a screenshot (!)

- Paste within word: i get the copied text

- no 3rd-party apps

Maybe i have some Trouble with my logitech-keyboard ???
(when i hit the spacebar - the volume of Bluetooth-Speakers comes up)

Thanx 4 your Response … ;-)

I don't think it's a keyboard problem. It sounds like a system, or possibly a Word problem. But it's not any kind of problem I ever heard of.

I have find out, that my Keyboard is the troubleshooter !

my "Alt-Key" makes the screenshots ...

I always switched between apps with Alt+Tab an created the screenshots "over" the clipboard-text this way ...

Maybe Logitech have a driverupdate to fix it ... 

Thank YoU walt.farrell ;-)
