SCOUG OS/2 For You - July 1999


 Dear Mr. Know-It-All 

Mr. Know-It-All has the answers to even the really tough questions.


Q.  Dear Mr. Know-It-All,

I used to be able to drag objects to the desktop. Now all I get is shadows. What's wrong?

A.  This is a Workplace Shell option. Somehow, something decided to change the option for you. Right mouse button on the Desktop. Select Properties and click on the Desktop tab. Change the "Default drop operation" back to Move and things will be as you remembered them.

Q.  Dear Mr. Know-It-All,

Something changed something and now Wordpro will not let me copy and paste rows within a table. Everything goes into one cell. What happened?

A.  Wordpro defines two paste methods for items in the clipboard. One pastes the entire clipboard contents into a single cell. This is useful for pasting text containing line breaks into a single cell. The other pastes into multiple cells. This is what you need to paste tables rows.

To toggle this option, select File->User Setup->WordPro Preferences. Under General Usage Options, click the Disable drop down arrow and toggle the setting for Multiple cell paste.

If you find your self doing this often, you can attach the following scripts to icons and add them to the toolbar:

Sub Main .Application.Preferences.MultiCellPasteOn = True End Sub and Sub Main .Application.Preferences.MultiCellPasteOn = False End Sub


Curious or in doubt, you can ask Mr. Know-It-All
OS/2 is his specialty and sharing solutions is his passion
