    Copy, Paste and Text Formatting

    cault Level 1
      If I copy text from another application, then paste it into a Fireworks textbox, it replaces the Fireworks formatting with the formatting from the previous application. I'm looking for something along the lines of the "paste and match style" function found in most Apple programs. Also, if I copy text *from* Fireworks, then paste it into another application, it shows up as an image, not text.

      Any way around these problems? (At least they're problems for me.)

      I've been using FW since it was originally released, and I don't recall these problems in previous versions. I don't have any earlier versions installed, however, so I can't be sure.

          Open the text in the text editor (Text > Editor) and copy and paste it
          from there. You can also paste text into the text editor to remove
          formatting from other software.
