|I have this problem with Word but I think it is a general problem with other Office software aswell. I've also seen a lot of questions about it on many forums. If there are any answers they don't really match the question.|
When I try to copy text from, typically any web browser (including IE), and paste it into a word document, nothing happens. If I then open Notepad and try to paste there it works fine. So I mark the text again in Notepad and copy it from there to see if that would help. But still pasting ointo Word doesn't work.
Next I open WordPad and repeat the procedure. This time, when I try to paste back in Word I get an error message with the following info attached:
"There is a problem saving the file.
Usually this is because the disk or floppy disk is too small for the file or is full, RAM memory is low, or there is a permission problem with the drive the file is being saved to.
If the amount of disk space for a paging file is low, save the file to another drive. If the RAM memory is low, increase available RAM. If permissions to the drive do not allow you to save to that drive, save the file to another drive or request permissions from the administrator to save files to the drive.
Note This error can also occur if the computer is running a version of antivirus software that is incompatible with the Microsoft Office or must be updated."
The only solution I've found is to restart the computer. But this only helps for a few minutes and then it's back to same state again. No matter what settings I choose, Word won't notice anything to paste. However, If I copy something in Word and try to paste it again that works without problem. It is only when I've copied content from another program (text, images or other media) and try to paste in Word, that I get this. But then, when I check, the content is on the clipboard.
