Pasting Text

Table of contents:

Another method for getting text into an InDesign document is to copy and paste it from another application. Before you do this you might want to check out a related preference in the Type Preferences dialog box: Preserve Text Attributes When Pasting. Depending on the result you want, this can either be a blessing or a curse, so it's good to know you have the option. Note that when you paste text from another application, "dumb" or straight quotes will not be automatically converted to Typographer's quotes, nor will double hyphens be converted to em dashesboth standard niceties that come with importing a text file using the Place command.
