Pasting Formatted Text from Write to Paintbrush


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows versions 2.03, 2.1, 2.11, 3.0, 3.0a, 3.1, 3.11
  • Microsoft Windows for Workgroups versions 3.1, 3.11


When you paste text formatted in Microsoft Windows Write into Microsoft Windows Paintbrush, you lose your special formats (underlining, italics, and superscripts).


Paintbrush cannot accept Write-formatted text characters from the Clipboard without stripping the formatting. Text pasted from Write into Paintbrush is converted automatically into the current Paintbrush text-format settings, as specified in the Font and Style menus.

Many of the Write text-format selections can be duplicated in the Paintbrush environment. Other formats, such as superscript and subscript, are not available in Paintbrush.

Additional query words: 3.00, 3.0, 3.0a, 3.00a 3.10 3.11
