Recently, we noticed many people get affected with Copy & Paste issue after installed an update for Skype.
- Cannot copy & paste with correct formatting, the formatting will lose during copy & paste.
- When check the Paste Special option, the "keep source formatting" option is not available.
The ClipBoard has been interfered with by the recently released Skype Click to Call (Version 18.104.22.16860).
Thanks Hans Vogelaar (MVP) for keep monitoring on this issue!

I tried rebuiding MS Office and that worked for a little while (I now see it worked until I ran Firefox again with Skpe Click to Call.
This worked very well.

Thank you good sir, this has been driving me silly for about 4 hours, and I been using Spreadsheets since SuperCalc & Lotus. I uninstalled Skype and everything is beer & skittles.. Great job!!

Jan here :-)
I told my colleagues I was uninstalling Skype Click to Call to solve my copy/paste problems and they (Gary and Geoff) scoffed at the idea, well guess what!!
IT WORKED! copy paste works again both equations and tables (in MS Word). I also ended up removing a small icon on Google chrome (top right) for skype to call! I had trouble uninstalling Skype to Call, as it kept complaining about chrome being open (which it was not). In the end I force deleted skype/toolbar folder from my Program Files!
Life can be stranger than fiction, who would have guessed. I'd like to know how anyone figured it out, trial and error?
Janps: the truth is I am still worried, as this will be the third time I have made it work, and then it reoccurred a short time later...fingers crossed....

I think the honours for working this out go to Hans Vogelaar
Thanks for the compliment, but it was a collective effort - it took a while before a clear cause emerged.
Regards, Hans Vogelaar

I had this issue too. Removed Skype to call and is now resolved. Isn't the internet brilliant? I never would have figured this out otherwise.
