    Carl Chatfield: Carl's favorite 2010 features: Improved paste into Word and Excel

    • 0 Comments
    Carl Chatfield here. In previous posts (including here and here ) I've explored some of my favorite new features in Project 2010.

Not Glamorous, But Still a Great 2010 Improvement Copy and Paste via the Windows Clipboard is such a basic, unglamorous feature that I was surprised to see some improvements in this area. Yet in 2010 you'll find better pasting of structured, tabular data from Project to Word and Excel. Let's start with the Copy and Paste experience in Office 2007 applications (and indeed what I describe here is what you'd experience in all versions prior to 2010). Let's start first with Excel.
