Try Two Tips on Cutting & Pasting Text in Word

When you want to bring text into Word from another document, try the two tips below for smoother integration.

  • Tip #1: Hold on to the formatting!
    When you paste text into a different document, you can have the text match the font in the new document and also hold on to the basic formatting (such as bold and italic). To do this, press CTRL+V (Windows) or Command+V (Mac) to paste the text. Then click the clipboard icon that appears after the text and select the option below:

      Paste Options Windows Paste Options Mac

  • Tip #2: Easily Combine Multiple Word Documents
    If you want to combine two or more Word documents into one, you can always use copy and paste. But there is another way:

    In Windows, place the cursor where you want the content to be added. Then click the Insert tab. In the Text section, click the down arrow next to Object and select Text from file. Choose the file you wish to include and click Insert.

    On the Mac, place the cursor where you want the content to be added. Then click the Insert menu and select File. Choose the file you wish to include and click the Insert button.
