I hope this is a simple tweak I'm overlooking, but when I copy-paste text from MS Word on Mac into User Notes in Accordance 11, the formatting from Word is stripped (bold, italics, etc.).

 

Pasting in the same way into Scrivener preserves the formatting, so I don't think it's anything with the text I'm copying.

 

I see how to Paste and Match Style in Accordance User Notes, but is there a way to Paste and Retain Style?

 

(And if not, this would be a feature request.)

I've noticed that the same thing happens when importing HTML.

Thanks, Rick. I can't remember now--was it like this before?

I don't either. I only noticed it myself recently.

By the way, for what it's worth, copy-pasting from another Accordance module into User Notes preserves formatting.

even by copy-paste in the User Notes itself.

Accordance used to retain italics, bold, and color when copying from a note into another note in User Notes.  (I do this frequently if I find some interesting grammatical, lexical, or theological info that I want to be able to see in my notes at more than one verse of Scripture.)  Now when I copy, I have to reformat everything.  Can't remember what happened when I copied from outside Accordance.  Since we used to be able to copy and retain style, it shouldn't be too difficult to reacquire the ability?  Was there some change from Acc10 —> Acc11 that would preclude the reacquisition?

Oh, and by the way, when I mentioned importing from HTML a while ago, I was thinking of user tools. Sorry.

I'm still having an issue here, the same one Julie describes. Is a fix or update on the way? 

 

What I want to do is copy-paste a template for each User Note (headings in bold), from one verse to another. I have to manually make my headings bold in each new note as it is now.

Interestingly enough, what I am unable to do on the desktop app (copy-paste and preserve bold font) works just fine in Accordance's iOS app.
