    Thumbs up

    I have Microsoft Word 2007 installed and when I copy text from the web and past it into my document I lose the right side of the text.
    How can I overcome this?

    Can you give an example of this, i.e., a page that causes this problem when you paste it?

    One thing that comes to mind is when a paragraph is "wider" than a table cell, each line will be truncated at the edge of the cell rather than wrapping. Many web pages use tables for layout, and Word may be resizing the table cell without resizing its contents. If you turn on viewing of Table gridlines (Table Tools > Layout tab), that might help in determining whether this is the problem.

    If you can afford to lose the formatting in the text that you are pasting into the document, you can try "Paste Special" and use the "unformatted text" option...

    Thank you for the suggestions. I will look at them. However, I "discovered" this web site which converts web pages to PDF.
    www.web2pdfconvert.com.
    I tried it and it works.
