If you reference information from online sources, sometimes copying the information directly into your Word document can have some unwelcome effects. As a rule, you do not want to keep the original formatting in the text you are copying. Fortunately, there is now a quick and easy method to accomplish this.
Follow the steps below to learn how:
- Copy the text you would like to copy from the source by selecting the text and clicking CTRL + C.
- Next, place your cursor in your document where you would like your copied text to appear.
- Right-click and select Keep Text Only from the resulting menu.
Very easy right?
You can set a default if you like, so that in the future, your text is automatically pasted in that format. Then you do not have any unpleasant surprises!
