Learn how to set the default paste option to keep source formatting, merge formatting, or keep plaintext only.
- [Instructor] If you plan to paste information…from other sources into a notebook,…you may want to customize the paste options.…To locate this start by looking for the ellipses…in the upper right corner.…Select this to go to the Settings and More menu.…Then select Settings.…From the list select Options.…Next let's scroll to the bottom of the list…and locate Paste Options.…Here's Paste Options.…The default paste option is to keep the source formatting…of the content from where it's being copied from…once it's pasted into this notebook.…
The other two choices are to merge the formatting,…merge the formatting of where…that source information is coming from…to the destination placement of where it's going to…within a OneNote notebook.…The third choice is to keep the text only,…essentially stripping away all of the formatting…that has been applied to the text…and it's going to become plain text…once it's pasted into the notebook.…Let's go ahead and keep the default setting…of Keep Source Formatting for now.…
