Font change in copy and paste - or drag and drop.
Posted 28 January 2012 - 11:04 PM
This has only been occuring since the last update to 9.5.3, and the installation of a couple of new modules.
Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.

Nevertheless, my Word 2008 doesn't have 'Paste and Match Formating' listed in the 'Edit' menu.
I've never had this issue before and I've been using Accordance for several years.
I wonder if there is somekind of 'bug' in the latest update?

However, if I remember correctly, when you paste in Word 2008, you should immediately see a little clipboard icon under the text you pasted. If you click on it, a menu will come up in which you can choose your paste to match text formatting,

I'm feeling a little daft... have I been missing something or was I previously just running on dumb luck?
I haven't changed any settings in either progream as far as I can remember...
My source (accordance) and the destination (Word) formatting are the same (both are set to Cambria), but every time I paste something, it pastes in Geneva and changes the font size 12.

So far, I've tested fonts in both OpenType and TrueType formats. For reference, it is NOT system font corruption as I've reinstalled the fonts.

I've tried changing the fonts etc... in my texts and tools as well - to no avail...
I never had an issue until 9.5.3 either....
That being said, I feel positively spoiled rancid, that I'm not having to use a burnt stick or birds feathers to write my sermons and papers!!
From everything I've seen the Accordance folks are pretty positive in their response to these kinds of issues.
(I remember when dad 'fixed' the tv by smacking it on the side 'just so'...)
I'll wait until I 'hear' that they've got it sorted out...
Thanks guys for your help,

All it took was to un-select or clear the box marked: "Export all characters with Unicode format", from the Accordance preferences / Hebrew & Greek options.
I got curious because it seemed to me that it might be a 'code' issue and that Unicode might be a possible culprit, so I poked around until happened upon this.
Viola! Now all text - including my Greek and Hebrew texts - maintain their source and destination fonts styles and sizes when I paste © or drag and drop to MS-Word.
Some of you smarter folks are probably smiling to yourselves right about now - but hey some of us have to take our victories where we can find them! ; )

We are looking into the issue of the esport of font info with the Unicode fonts.
