Why does the Clipboard not work properly with Microsoft Publisher?

MacInt June 10, 2010

When I copy something in Microsoft Word, or anywhere but Publisher, and attempt to paste it into Publisher, it will only paste if I open up the Office clipboard and click “paste all”. What is wrong??
This is in Office 2007.
Thank you.

    I'm sorry, I checked back a couple of times and didn't see an answer, I was only asking because I was putting together an ad book and this came up, the ad book came out and I never found a solution I just had to suffer through it.

    I'll see if I can try a little later and if it works I'll let you know.

    try ctrl-alt v and see if the other paste options work for you
