    I have MS Works Word Processor version 8.5 and it has worked perfectly for some time, but recently when I try to copy and paste it says "The information you copied exceeds the size limit for pasting into the word processor. Try reducing the size of your selection, & then copy & paste again" It doesn't matter how much I copy (5 words or 50 words) it does the same thing.
    If I copy my information and paste it to notepad first then copy from notepad & paste to MS Works it works fine no matter how many words I copy.
    This happens whether I copy from Internet explorer or other documentation.
    Thanks for any ideas.

    Hi deubanks
    Glad to hear someone else has the same problem. Thought I was getting old and dumb for a while.
    By the way I found that if you click edit, paste special &OK on the drop down it will work all the time. This is not a solution to the problem but works for the interum.
