I tried copying and pasting from Numbers into a new DTPO item using New With Clipboard, hoping that it might create a sheet. It didn’t and the result surprised me, so I checked the behaviour with other iWork/Office applications. What I found was that New With Clipboard creates items with the following formats:
- tiff from Numbers
- PDF+Text from Excel
- RTF from Pages
- PDF+Text from Word
So pasting from the clipboard can create 3 different formats: image, pdf and text depending on the originating software. Is this a feature of the originating software and how it interfaces with the clipboard?
