Freeze when copy paste text from word to Indesign CC

Hi,
I have a problem when working with indesign CC. When i'm copying text from word to Indesign, after a while my windows system freezes. Only Indesign works. Windows and word are frozen. After a while (several minutes) the system works agian.
This problem occurs sinc I have Indesign CC.
Windows 8, indesign CC, Word 2013
I hope someone has a solution.

It's the PDF.
Usually, you can copy text out of a PDF, but there is no guarantee *at all*. Older software used to take shortcuts to subset fonts: first character it encountered got coded as #1, the next as #2, etc. etc. If you do a search & replace of each of the nonsense characters, you'll slowly see the original text appearing (thst's not as simple as it sounds, though).
A similar "problem" is that sometimes spaces don't get copied (there is no need for a "Space Character" in a PDF), and that you cannot copy contiguous lines of text as a single paragraph. All of it is because a PDF is not intended nor designed to be re-used after creation.
If you really need this text and don't want to type it in, try to get hold of the original file.

  • Pasting Text from Word to InDesign (need preserve selected formatting)

    When I import text from Word to Indesign I want to preserve the Italic and semi-bold but nothing else.
    The Indesign document has a template set up with ipsum text styled with semi-bold and normal text as well as a character style for the italic.
    When I paste the text into InDesign I want the ital and semi-bold to translate into the already styled text frame with no other formatting from Word.
    As there will be hundreds of text frames like this I want the ital etc to automatically translate. I also need to paste text over these templated text frames (see attached.
    Cheers,

    Use File > Place and check the import options instead of Copy/Paste.

  • CR duplication when Copy/Pasting text from a JTextArea

    I have a typical scenario of having text in a JTextArea. When I select some of that text and try to paste it either to an external text editor or even in the same JTextArea, I am getting extra line spaces in the screen.
    For example, if I have the following text:
    <a id=1>
       <b/>
    </a>When I copy paste it, I get:
    <a id=1>
       <b/>
    </a>When I looked to see what characters were being used for the CR, I see "\r\n". This is the standard line.seperator for Windows OS which is fine. When I save this text to a file using the Java I/O libraries, it is fine (no extra lines). But when copy/pasting it prints extra lines.
    Has anyone had similar problems?

    Has anyone had similar problems? No. How are you doing the copy/paste? Did you write your own routines or are you using the default Actions. By default, when a Document is loaded it will convert the "\r\n" end of line string to "\n" and store the single character in the Document. When you use the getText(..) method the enod of line string will be expanded to "\r\n" on a Windows system, but this should not happen in a copy/paste operation. How do you add data to your text area?
    This section from the Swing tutorial on "Text Component Features" has a working example of using copy/paste:

  • Problems copy & paste text from PDF to InDesign CS5

    Hey guys
    Today, I tried copying and pasting text from a PDF I received from my client, into a InDesign CS5 doc, and the text came out was just random numbers and punctuations.
    I've tried exporting Word / RTF & TXT file from the PDF and yet they still come out random. I'm not sure if it's just how the PDF was made, or there is something wrong with my CS5.
    I'm on Snow Leopard, CS5 Premium, Acrobat Pro 9 & also Acrobat Reader X.
    Any ideas why?

  • Copy/paste text from Word doc or PDF to Robohelp

    Bolded words, indentions, paragraphs, line spacing, font, and
    text size amongst other things are lost when I do a simple
    copy/paste... Any way to relieve this?
    Thanks

    Hi
    I'd like to answer this in a slightly different way..
    It's a good idea to format anything you paste into RH in RH
    using paragraph styles etc. Hardcoded formatting won't be under
    stylesheet control which is very bad news.
    In fact I generally paste stuff from a word doc into notepad
    first to remove any formatting soI have "clean" text to begin with.
    That way you ensure consistency when styles are updated etc
    as well maintaining consistency with what's already there.

  • Copy/Paste Text from Word

    I've written a seminar on Word (Greek & English). I want
    this text on Director.
    When I copy the Word text and paste it on Director (on a text
    field) it changes the fonts.
    The problem is that, although I change the fonts on the whole
    text (to "Times New Roman Greek"), the english words sometimes look
    strange. So, I have to mark every english word and change its fonts
    from "Times New Roman Greek" to Times New Roman. As you see, it's a
    very time-consuming process and very exhausting. Is there an easier
    way doing this?

    download and extract to your director xtras folder:
    http://xtrema.rtr.gr/beta/xtrema.zip
    Copy the text you want to translate to clipboard, and then,
    from your
    message window, try:
    _d().fromClip().toS(1253).toClip()
    then try pasting the text.
    1253 is the code page for greek.
    For mac code pages supported by windows (values you can pass
    to the toS()
    command), check the second link - for greek, it's 10006.

  • Copying Japanese text from Word into InDesign CS5 - possible?

    Hi,
    I created an advert in English, and now the marketer has asked me to make a Japanese version.
    They have given me a Word Document with the Japenese text in it (in more or less the same paragraph structure to the English one) with instructions of what goes where.
    When I copy the paragraps into Indesign CS5, the font is just squares and shapes, not text.
    Is it possible to get the Japanese text working in InDesign? Is there a specific font selection I have to use?
    Thanks

    The group of Japanese fonts is the one containing Kozuka Mincho.  You do not need the  World-ready composer for simple left-to-right Japanese, and non-Japanese InDesign may do what you need.  If you need Japanese-specific text processing features (e.g., vertical text, automated application of "word" breaking rules), some are available in Adobe Illustrator and explained in its help files.  Or you could try Harbs' World Tools Pro.

  • Can't shown chinese text when copy & paste data from server to Outlook, Word & notepad, etc.( Office 2013)

    Can't shown chinese text when copy & paste data from server to Outlook, Word & notepad, etc.( Office 2013)

    Hi
    As per the information and details provided by you, when you copy & paste a data from server to Outlook, word, notepad, then you do not receive the Chinese text.
    For Outlook, please follow these steps: -
    Close and reopen Outlook in your western locale (or switch the windows system to your Western locale if you changed that),
    Manually change the message from Western to Chinese encoding, which you can do in all versions up to Outlook 2007.
    If you want to stay in your Chinese locale in Outlook 2007, then:
    After you hit reply, go to the Option tab > More Options.
    In the Encoding drop-down menu, select the Chinese encoding you are working in (Not the encoding used by the person who will receive the message)
    Note:
    To set the Chinese locale in all versions up to 2007 the controls are under.
    Tools > Options. In Outlook 2010 File tab > Options > Advanced > International options.
    Unicode (UTF-8)
    is a good setting for multilingual users.
    Check the
    Auto select 2007)/ Automatically select (2010) encoding box.
    I hope this information will be helpful for you.
    Thanks and regards

  • Pasting text from word replaces Keynote styles

    I get documents that are styled in Word that I have to convert to Keynote. Even though my text boxes are styled in the Master Slides, when I copy and paste text from word it comes in with all of word's formatting and disregard's Keynote's styling for that text box. I tried to convert the word docs to rtf or just plain text, but the text just imports without Keynote's styling applied to it. It would be very tedious to have to style each text box as I bring it in to Keynote. Does anyone have any suggestions to make the workflow less painful?

  • How can I copy/paste text from one page to another?

    I feel like I am taking crazy pills... is there really no way to copy a text box (or group) from one page to another while creating books in Aperture 3?  Lets say I have my entire book laid out and I want to add one paragraph at the end on one page which will push text and photos down a half page or so... in most programs for the last decade or so they added really cool functionality... cut/paste...  It seems like the apple developers are aware of it because they are in the context menus but they don't work on text, only photo boxes.  Additionally, you can copy/paste text but it erases all formatting.
    Seriously, am I missing something?  I have trouble believing that they can't include this function.
    Anyone else have this issue?

    Update... it seems to only happen with text boxes which I create.  So when I try an existing theme I can cut/copy/paste just fine, but in that same theme if you edit the layout and add a new text box, I can't copy paste it anywhere... the options are in the menu but nothing happens.
    Thoughts? Solutions?
    I am running 3.4.3 on a MacBook Pro OS X 10.8.3

  • Problem pasting text from Word into Mail

    When I compose text in Word and paste it into Mail, paragraphs are separated by spaces that weren't in the original Word document and I have to do a lot of work to get rid of them. If I compose or paste the text in TextEdit and then copy the message into Mail, there's no problem. Is there a fix so I can just compose my messages in Word and then transfer them into Mail?

    There's a mention there of the Mail menu option Format -> Make Plain Text, which may help you.
    I filed a "bug report" with Apple (http://www.apple.com/feedback/macosx.html) about quirky spacing in Mail messages and the lack of any editing feature to control such spacing. Maybe you'd want to do the same.

  • Auotmating Text from Word into InDesign

    Here is my situation: I am the graphic artist and layout person for the company that I work for.  We produce layouts that have a pretty consistent format.   Each layout has definite text sections.  These text sections are written by the research editor and put into a single word document.  I then have to copy and past the various text sections into the layout in InDesign.
    I know that if my Research Editors worked in InCopy it would elminate the need for me to copy and paste the text from word doc into the the layout document.  The problem is that one of the editors is a contract worker that is outside the office.
    I was wondering if there was some way to set up a template in word.  The idea would be that once the document is finished it could be imported into InDesign in a way that it would automatically populate the the text sections in the layout.

    Well you know what I mean, by copy and paste.  I place the text in first to preserve the formatting.
    This seems backwards, to me. Is the "formatting" in the Word document based on styles? If it is, you can map your InDesign styles to your Word styles on import. If it's not, then I find it much faster to change the formatting into styles immediately upon import.
    If you're not using any defined styles at all in your InDesign document, then yeah, I guess that copying and pasting is faster and a better way to preserve the manually applied formatting in Word. But why do that, when using well-defined styles in ID can be significantly faster?

  • Copy and paste text from Word for Mac to Mail exasperating!

    I'm so exasperated!! I would be grateful for some help.  I have a carefully worded template letter in Word for Mac.  I copied and pasted it into Mail and loads of extra lines are put in that I cannot delete! So I painstakingly copy and paste each line.  I still have to faff about deleting extra lines that magically appear, then press shift+enter to go to next line without having a line space.  It has messed up font size as well.  Surely it should be straightforward to copy and paste simple text from one program to another!  Is there something I should know or do I just have to type everything out afresh each time - ridiculous in this so called easy technology that saves work ha ha.

  • Copy and paste multiple texts from Word to Indesign

    Hello!!
    I would like to simplify multiple operations where I need to copy multiple text boxes from a Word doc into multiple boxes in Indesign, and be able to specify the exact location of each box in the Indesign doc. For example, I would like to take 7 text boxes from a Word doc and copy them separately into 7 boxes in the Indesign doc, rather than have to go back and forth into the Word doc. 7 times and pasting each text box one by one.
    See the screenshots
    Thank you in advance,
    Enrico

    That looks a lot like case for Data Merge. It won´t give you any tools for copy/pasting multiple textboxes but with little work, you could make a template where you could drop multiple Items like you have in your screenshot. It won´t work with docs, but if you can convert your stuff to excel, then it would be quite nice solution for you.
