Publisher 2003- How to copy web text into it?

  [email protected] 17:56 03 Apr 2004

I wanted to copy some text from a web site into Publisher 2003. I copied it and it came in a table. In publisher the table appears all squashed up but I cannot resize it and still retain all the text- HELP!!

Have you tried copying from the web then in Publisher, Edit/Paste Special and choosing "Unformatted text".

Generally speaking I find that if I copy text from the net, it is best to paste into a notepad page and then copy / paste into the relevant application (Word, publisher or whatever) as that will lose the formatting that is not necessary.

I cannot find edit/paste special only paste.
I tried Diodorus' idea and it works! Big hugs to you!
