In law firms, most of us copy and paste within and between documents a lot. Especially when a well-written document crosses your desk with text you could use in a precedent – why not borrow and reshape it instead of starting from scratch?

"Why isn’t the paragraph formatting of the pasted material the same as the document I’m working in?"Originally published October 8, 2013
