When I paste text from firefox to notes it only works if I choose edit/pate special/plain text.

With any other choice (such as ctrl V, paste, paste special /html) I'll get a set of little squares and strange unreadable characters.

Is that normal? Only plain text can be pasted from firefox?

thanks

I get the same behaviour as you when I test, only pasting as plain text works.

well, at least plain text works...

But isn't strange that there are a lot of html options and none works?

If you set your notes view to HTML display, you can paste directly into notes.

Try this: select some part of a page displayed in firefox, then right click and select view selection source. In the window that opens, right click and select 'copy'. Now paste that into the notes window (with HTML display turned on. Now revert the display back to Design view. Suprise!

Not sure what we're trying to achieve here. I copied formatted text from Firefox, set PB Notes to HTML view, then pasted into Notes. When I changed to Design View, all the formatted text was in plain text. Was this the aim?

When I paste formatted HTML directly into Design view it shows as html with formatting but also dotted lines, etc.



Are you running Linux? If so, don't change your configuration.  When I paste directly into Design view I get something (as Monty Python would say) completely different. Let's say that I select your reply above, copy it and past it into PB notes. The result is a form of Hieroglyphics. That result cannot be re-copied into another text editor (such as this one), but if I then switch to HTML, the notes look like this:
