Are there any known issues with using "Cut and Paste" to copy from Microsoft Word to CaliberRM requirement Description?

Resolution:


  • Product Name:�CaliberRM
  • Product Version: 6.5 ? 2005 R2 SP1
  • Product Component: Requirement Description
  • Platform/OS Version: All

CaliberRM enables a user to copy and paste directly from MS Word. This process works most of the time, but on occasions, however, some sections of pasted text (most notably the last line or paragraph) do not maintain their formatting. For example, here is a Microsoft Word document with some text formatting:

And here is how it is displayed after being pasted into CaliberRM

Note the loss of alignment on the red and blue lines. Colors and fonts may be lost as well in some situations.

Microsoft Word marks the end of every paragraph, and that paragraph"s associated formatting, with a hidden paragraph mark. If you do not include this paragraph mark when you copy the text, the formatting associated with that paragraph will not transfer correctly.

When copying text from Microsoft Word, make sure to include the last paragraph marker. You can view these hidden markers by doing the following:

  1. In Microsoft Word, click on Tools and select Options.
  2. Select the View tab.
  3. In the Formatting marks category, enable the Paragraph marks option.
  4. Click OK.

Alternatively, you can click on the paragraph mark icon in the Word toolbar, circled in red in the following image. With paragraph marks displayed, your Microsoft Word document will display hidden characters.

When copying text, be sure to include the final paragraph mark as illustrated above.
