I used to have something in my options which allowed me to directly cut and paste from Firefox to an OOo writer document and get text in the document's font, without the hyperlinks and graphics. However, I recently messed that up somehow and now cannot remember what I had done to make this possible.

Now, if I highlight text with links and graphics in Firefox and then middle click in the document I have links and boxes for graphics. The formatting is all goofy without line breaks and so on either, which I used to have. It takes quite some time to go back and alter everything a piece at a time, and I would love to have the convenience I once did for getting text in my document's format rather than in that of the web.

I have been over the menus and the options several times and cannot figure out what I need to change. Any suggestions?

Many thanks in advance,

Patrick

Many thanks for that. A little different than how it used to work for me, but probably better in that now I will be able to copy in hyperlinks when I want, and in the past I had obviously managed to turn that off altogether.

Thanks again.
