Content copying from embedded topics

Embedded topics

Best practice to copy embedded content

Open the embedded topic before copying content. This enables you to paste the formatting, tables and styles.

Limitations of copying directly from the embedded topic when it is in a container topic

When you are working in the container topic, your copy-paste options for the embedded topic are limited to plain text strings only. For example:

  • If you copy embedded text that is Special Bold, the text pastes as plain text, adopting either the style of the paste area or no style at all.
  • If you copy an embedded table, you can only paste plain text from the table (and not the table itself, styles from the table, or table formatting).
