Working in Windows. I have a table in Excel.  I would like to copy and past JUST THE TEXT from Excel into my project in photoshop.  I have selected "no fill" in Excel and clicked on every single thing I can think of to indicate that I do not want a white background to go with my text when it is pasted to photoshop.

 

Any ideas?

It does not give me that option. I have even pasted into word and moved from word with no luck either.

 

When I use "Numbers" on MAC, it moves over no sweat, no background just text, but I am working on a PC and for some reason I just can't lose the white background.

Sounds like you're grabbing a screenshot. 

You can use Blend If to drop out the white:

I could magic wand it but white will still show up inside letters and some numbers.  I just want to copy and paste the text into a project on photoshop without a background.
