    I selected text in Word 2007 and copied it. It appeared in the Word multi-selection clipboard but it didn't paste into another application -- a previous selection remained on the Windows clipboard -- Word stomped on the usual Windows conventions. What is the trick? I did manage to copy and paste the material by opening the document in OpenOffice Writer, in many ways a much less capable application...

    Hmmmm . . . . I just copied this entire response from Word 2007 and pasted it into this reply without any problems.

    Try Phil Rabichow's Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word - although it was written for earlier versions of Word, much of it applies to Word 2007 too.
