I can copy the text and paste it into a CA Rich Text dialog box but when I click ok out of it shows up completely out of alignment.

 

Please see attached pics for cut copy and paste process.

SW1- copied directly from word to Rich Text

SW2- shown on layout page after "ok"

SW3- shown back in Rich Text after reopening

 

Any suggestion would be great- hate to have to recreate the whole thing.

I can - and have.

Just seems like there should be a way to drag and drop and have it maintain the proper alignment.

 

I am guessing I am missing something in the Rich Text dialog box but I have tried all I can think of :wacko:

hmmm...weird.  Pasted just fine for me.

 

I did try and change the width of the rich text box and it got all messed up.  So I left the table in one text box and added a new one with the other info.

 

If you change the width of your DBX then it changes the way that table displays also...

Tried paste special - same deal

 

I tried it a couple more ways and still all jacked up.

I do see how changing  the size of the DBX changes the table display.

Johnathan- it appears that he lines for the cell blocks in your version are different than the ones in the snips i posted- and i cannot edit or delete those individual cells, which would allow me to re-align the text as needed.
