Copying to Sheepshaver
- Geoff and Joe, I too have found problems with pasting into WP in SS
material copied from OSX, sometimes even when I remember to click on the
SS desktop before pasting.

transfer the OSX graphic file as JPEG or GIF, or as a
ClarisWorks/AppleWorks drawing (I keep AW 6.2.9 on the OSX side, saving
as CW4 any material I want to move to SS, where I keep CW4 for such
purposes), into the Unix folder for opening in SS.
When OSX _text_ does not want to paste into WP in SS, I may paste it
into a new TextEdit document, then save as RTF into the Unix folder. WP
has not yet failed to open such an RTF (I drop the file onto John R.'s
"Open in WP" applet).
I have also found that SimpleText (in SS) can help. ST will accept a
paste of text copied from OSX more often than will WP or other SS apps,
and once the text is pasted into ST, will paste into WP even without
again being selected and copied. Both the TE and the ST methods retain
test attributes, though TE is likely to keep more of the formatting
(layout) features. HTH. Tom
