Copy/paste in QuarkXpress 2020

Post by jmleho » 14 Aug 2020, 01:23

Hello everybody

I'm using QuarkXpress 2020 since 2 weeks and I am disappointed with new issue for "paste".
When you copy a text in Word, TextEdit, Jedit, Excel (and some others), the text attributes are kept when you paste the text in Quark. You're forced to use the "opt/cde v" to paste without attributs. A great change since QuarkXpress 2018 !
Is it a bug, will there be an update to solve this issue, is there a hidden option ?

Thanks for answers

It's not a bug and it will stay this way. One can also argue, that it behaves the same like a lot of other programs (e.g. TextEdit, Affinity Designer) now.

If you don't like it, you can use something like "Paste Plain Text". It's free and works fine for us.
