Microsoft Word/copy and paste
I'm encountering an unexpected problem...
I have a file,with the jpg or tif extension, listed in Windows Explorer. I click the file name, then right-click, then choose the word "Copy".
Then I move to my email box where I want to insert the file, then I
right-click, to see a list of choices including "Paste".
The Problem: pasting does not occur.
When I want to do these steps with a file ending in the docx extension, I have no problem in pasting.
I know that I could ATTACH the jpg file, but I want to INSERT the file directly, as text, in the email.
Have I explained my problem clearly?
Chris - I am not clear on exactly what you are doing .
a *.jpg or a *.tiff file are images not text
What kind of email are you using? If it is Outlook, you would use the Insert feature not attach, which would send the file as an attachment.
To include an image within the email you go to the Insert TAB > Picture > select the file and it will end up in the body of the email.
Are you pasting into a Word Document?
Are you using Word to create emails?
I am using Word 2013 and I copy a *.jpg file and paste into a Word document and the image is within the document.
I repeated this pathway using Word 2007 and it also results in the image within the Word document.
What version of Word are you using?
