    Lose settings when cut & paste in text box (Publisher 2000)

    I have an envelope set up to print. It is custom built and all I have to do is change the name & address in the text box which is set up with a specific font, size, color, etc. When I want to insert and new name and address I highlight the old text and try a cut and paste. It works fine except I lose all the settings and have to set them up again for each printing. I tried saving and if I exit after saving that same N & A will be there when I return but if I change the text, etc using cut and paste it goes to a default (I guess).

    What is happening is that when you copy you are taking the font and it's properties with the data. Make the area you are copying from the same style as in Publisher and all should be well.

    Re: Lose settings when cut & paste in text box (Publisher 2000)

    I tried that and it didn't work. In Publisher I use Arial, 14, Bold & Italic, Green color. The database from which I am copying can be set up to do Arial, 14, Bold & Italic but only black in color. Yet when I paste it in a Publisher text box it comes out Times New Roman, 10 and black color. Any other ideas?

    I think the best you can do is create a style when you have it just right based how you want it. You can set colour indents font etc. Then every you time you cut and paste click the stylr to set up your text as ot should be. It's still a fuss but better than having to make all the changes every time

    Thanks, Peter. That will work and is less headache than the other way.
