This feels like one of those dumb questions…I know, the only dumb ones are the unasked ones, so here goes:
When I copy and paste text from highly formatted webpages (such as Amazon book psges) to DTPro, occasionally it turns into a skinny column just two or three characters wide and many screens long. Sometimes this happens after I edit the text to remove white space, images, etc.
Currently I solve this by cutting and pasting to Apple’s Pages, then back into DTP.
I know I could probably paste without styles and resolve this but I like to keep links intact.
Obviously I’m messing with the html somehow. Is there a remedy other than what I’m doing?
