Pasting text into the article
- To paste text, position the cursor where you want the text to appear, then press Ctrl+V or Shift+Insert. The text you paste will be formatted exactly as it appeared in the source window if you are copying it from another TreePad article, and if copying it from another program that handles formatted text, there is a high probability that the exact formatting will be preserved. I.e., these commands are for pasting rich text.
- If you are pasting rich text into an article containing only plain text, you may prefer to paste it in as plain text. In this case, copy it using Ctrl+C (as usual) but press Shift+Ctrl+V instead of Ctrl+V to paste it in. All boldfacing, italics, etc. will be discarded and the font size of the plain text will match that of the rest of the article.
- You can insert date and time stamps, hyperlinks, the contents of a whole text file and even images. See Insert menu, Importing a file into an article, Inserting images from a folder.
- You can also paste simply by dragging hyperlinks, highlighted blocks of text or even whole files across from another window into your Article pane. See Drag-and-drop support.
- You can set up TreePad to sit in the background, automatically pasting in any text you happen to highlight and copy to the Windows Clipboard. See Automatic paste.
You can also access many of these commands via Main menu ⁄ Edit and via the Article menu.
