Windows 10 copy and paste
« on: Tuesday 07 July 20 11:22 BST (UK) »
Recently my copy and paste function has changed format, ie instead of copying as seen ie, reading L to R, when i paste it appears vertical ? i looked on line and the first thing i have to do is go to file, how do i go to  file ? senility i think has crept up on me, bodger

I meant to say that i can cut and paste the post from vertical to left to right when it is on the notes page but it's a pain in the bum !

Can you link to one of the posts that you'd copied from.  It could be that that has been copied from a table display

I think that looks like it is in columns so if you copy and paste it, it would paste as a column (vertical).

I'm not sure how PAF files work but if it's Excel, you can use a Paste special and Transpose.

Sorry but it looks as if you'll have to enter them manually. Does PAF have a help function?
