Copying from HTML and pasting into WordPerfect

E. Bryant

I work in higher education and frequently, I need to copy things from the web. When I copy something from the web and paste it into WordPerfect two things do NOT happen. First, if there is a hyperlink in what I am copying, it does not paste into WP. Second, if there is a picture it does not copy either. If I want the picture I have to perform this as an additional copy and paste which takes a lot of extra time. I will say that in WORD it is just one copy and one paste. Thus, I find myself using WordPerfect less and less since I just don't have the time to loose messing with WordPerfect. I really want to use WordPerfect but it is just costing me too much time and frustration. I noted that a new version of WP is available. Since it does not do this, nor does it use unicode, I have no reason to upgrade. If you will add these two functionalities, I will be glad to upgrade, just let me know when.

It would be nice if, when pasting from the web into WordPerfect, one did not import lots of superfluous styles consisting of an underscore followed by a number, e.g., _1, _2, etc. This can be avoided by using Paste Special, but it is easy to forget and just do a standard paste.

Unfortunately, Paste Special fails to work in Lightning.

I must add the this type of pasting with superfluous styles happens when using Internet Explorer, which Microsoft is now officially retiring, not the other browsers.
