Copying without background.

  Bowsprit 18:42 26 Sep 2004

Been trying to copy from a site into Word but everytime it brings the dark grey background with it.I have not been using "select all" only highlighting the text and pictures i want.Tried removing background in Word but no luck.Can anyone help as printing pages of grey will just waste ink.

pasting into notepad ignores the background ..then copy to word doc.

ARE YOU HIGHLITIN text and pics together? if so you may have to do it in smaller sections, ie smaller paragraphs then pics.

Or in Word, Edit/PasteSpecial and choose Unformatted text. You will then need to get the pictures from the website by right clicking each one, selecting Copy then pasting into Word.

Copied into wordpad and notepad and they miss out the pictures.VoG™ your method works fine (a little tedious) I wish some of these sites made copying for printing easier.Thanks all.
