Why do formats not survive cut-and-paste?

Recommended Posts

I’m “crowdproofing” my manuscript, and have found that italicized passages are not surviving the cut-and-paste process. I’m using a lot of italicized passages, so this is problematic. What am I failing to do?

Hi, Dan, and welcome to the forums,

Font overrides (bold, italic, etc.) can be tricky when cut and pasted. Are you trying to paste from Storyist to another program: Word, say? Or something else?

There are often ways to get around the tendency for programs to nuke the italics, but before I go into details, it would be helpful to know exactly what you're trying to do.

Best, Marguerite
