Copy and Paste Made Easy

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? I field a lot of questions about Microsoft Word’s copy-and-paste function: "Why is the text I pasted in a different font than the document I’m working in?" "Why isn’t the paragraph formatting of the pasted material the same as the document I’m working in?"
