Wordpad View Error

03/11/2012 10:31 PM

Regards.

My system Windows 7 Home Pro 70bit, Dell laptop Inspiron

Wordpad 16 bit [prefer due to easy and copies links in text, when needed]

It is the 2nd chance in last 3/4months that when I paste the sizeof all the text goes so small.

Try to re-formatby Ctrl+A and select the original font size but No change in view.

Then checked with "Font OK" to confirm font size.

Checked with Font OK

Compared in another instant of wordpad copying from the

problem wordpad

Hope some clue.

It looks like some hidden formatting is coming out of the document/reader/browser that you are copying from.

When you paste into Wordpad, try using the "paste special" command. This will allow you to paste the text unformatted. If the font size in the original document is of a normal legible size (10, 12, 14) then it should paste over in the same font size without rich text or other formatting.

You could also try using Notepad instead.

Good answer.

You could also try using Notepad instead.

OR, use Notepad as a temporary/intermediate "store" for the text.

Thanks.

Please see my reply to #1.

It is not serious problem and is resolved just by opening another instance of the wordpad.

Thanks'.

<<Wordpad 16 bit [prefer due to easy and copies links in text, when needed] >>

Please note when I want to paste Pure Text I can:

I am using a small App "pureText" which provides the facility with it's Hot key to paste pure text.

It also aids to paste the copied format or format of the file in which I am pasting; even the format of the part or region of file.

Secondly:

The App "FontviewOK" showing the actual size, font and formatting and I copied from it and pasted in another instance of the wordpad which Is shown in Compare image indicating the difference.

In my view it the problem of that window which gives a smaller view; but remember that window size is not changed at all.

Though it is not a serious problem but I think it is worth to see the astonishing behaviour.

Thanks again for your suggestion.

Regards
