Office 2007 Copy + Paste behavior & Defaults
I genuinely dislike the default paste functionality in Office products (although it seems that in Office 2010 they have finally addressed the issue.) I'm sure if you're at this page it's because you also have the same distaste. Fret not a moment longer. In Office 2007 after you paste text there is a small icon that looks like the paste toolbar button. Some of you might have even rolled your eyes at Microsoft for having such a thing. However, the key to changing the default copy+paste behavior is there! Simply click the icon and choose "Set Default Paste..." Now you'll be taken to a screen where you can set the default copy+paste behavior!!! Enjoy.
