Copying from Other Applications

You can copy information from most other Windows applications into eWebEdit400 and retain most or all of the original application’s formatting. In general, copying from another application involves these steps.

1. Sign on to the application that contains the information.

2. Select the text to be copied.

3. Press <Ctrl>+<C>.

4. Go to eWebEdit400.

5. Press <Ctrl>+<V> to paste the selected information.

Note that you can only copy content, not background information that generates content. So, for example, you can copy the values in a spreadsheet but not the formulas used to generate them. Also, copying dynamic fields from Microsoft Word retrieves the current value of the fields but not the variables that generate the values.

It’s a good idea to experiment with copying from different sources to test the results.
