This is a great tip for pasting text into Scrivener, and will save me a lot of time – but I’m having the same problem copying and pasting stuff outward from Scrivener into a standard word processor: The italics, bold, and underline are lost.
This is a huge, glaring, teeth-grinding problem.
I’m using 1.9.7 for Windows, haven’t updated to 1.9.8. If it’s fixed in 1.9.8, I do hope someone will tell me.
I’m using v. 1.9.9, and it’s working right for me. I copied a short bit of text with italics, bold, underlining, and strikethrough and then pasted into WordPad, MS Word, and Nota Bene. The formatting came through correctly in each of them. It seems that the text copies from Scrivener onto the clipboard in RTF format. What word processor are you having a problem with?
