[Solved] Pasting from Google Translate

Postby david613 » Wed Jun 13, 2018 1:45 am

Hello!

When I am pasting a translation from Google Translate into a text I am working on, sometimes the format (font, size, colors...) of the original is respected and sometimes... not.

Why this is happening and how can I avoid it?

Thank you for your help :D .

NEVER paste formatted content from a foreign source. Paste the content as "Unformatted text" by the Paste special function, and format it in the Writer by usage of the Styles.

Simple, but didn't think about it!

Thank you very much.
