    Multi-Paste in MS-Office (Office 2K and XP)

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Loungers

    I know that the multi-paste works for the first 12 copy/pastes operations, so why must I be reminded by Office that its the case?

    Does the copy of the 13th item not remove the first item such that there are 12 items, most recently used? Then you have the toolbar that gets docked at the worst position. It pushes all the toolbars off and makes my tools off kilter.

    I am getting annoyed by this reminder and its affecting my work. <img src=/S/aflame.gif border=0 alt=aflame width=16 height=16>

    Can I do anything about it?

    Have a look at OFF2000: Preventing the Office Clipboard Toolbar from Appearing . If that doesn't cover it completely, search the MSKB for "Office Clipboard".

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Phil Rabichow on 11-Mar-03 15:08. to add the last paragraph)</P>I've never liked the multi-paste that MS developed. Why don't you disable it & search the Software forum for clipboard extenders. They're much better.

    Also, to prevent the clipboard from showing automatically:
    If you close the Clipboard toolbar three times in a row without using Paste All or any of the item buttons, the Clipboard toolbar no longer appears automatically, and the Microsoft Office Assistant displays the following message: "It looks like you don't want the Clipboard toolbar to appear automatically. You can display the Clipboard toolbar by pointing to Toolbars on the View menu, and then clicking Clipboard."

    Any one who has a link to this article must be frustrated with the Multi-paste function in MS-Office. <img src=/S/brickwall.gif border=0 alt=brickwall width=25 height=15> <img src=/S/aflame.gif border=0 alt=aflame width=16 height=16>

    I will go and look for a better solution, I am truly fed up with the multi-paste function and the way MS implemented it. <img src=/S/aflame.gif border=0 alt=aflame width=16 height=16>

    Microsoft has added these things because enough users felt they need to be there. Or that MS has been blamed for losing people's data by NOT warning them (the User) that they will lose this data on the 13th "copy" to the clipboard.

    Most people do NOT work the same way as others, people are needed to be protected from them selfs. I do not know how many times one is ask "Are you sure" there will always be that one time I did NOT really want to delete that file. <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Now is this MS's fault or us the user's fault that we did not set up things the way we want them.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
