I am using Framemaker 2015 (Verision 13) and paste special no longer works. Nothing happens at all, it does not even paste the text. This feature is especially helpful when pasting text from other sources. Has anyone else encountered this and do you have a solution.
If it worked before, what changed? Is it happening if you start up a plain vanilla doc & try pasting or only with particular docs?
Nothing changed that I am aware of. I have done everything short of reloading the software. I've also tried it with a "vanilla" document with no templates applied, etc. and I get the same results. The paste special option is not greyed out in the pull-down menu.
I haven't encountered this.
Generally, I have content from MS Word. If I do an Edit > Paste, it will paste the content on the clipboard. For Edit > Paste Special the dialog box does not even appear. Strange, it used to work.
If you're trying to get Word text pasted just as regular, plain text (no unicode, no formatting cruft) you can adjust your maker.ini to stick TEXT as the first choice in the Paste list. That's what I've done - works like a charm.
Thanks! I’ll try that.
Hi Janice, do you have the latest updater (13.0.5) for Fm 2015?
If not, see Adobe - FrameMaker : For Windows
Paste Special should be there, so if that isn't the issue, try resetting your preferences.
