Paste special I'm very familiar with and it does not save graphics and live

I would show all what I se but you can't attach jpgs here.

People create forums and Web sites and must upload content in tables
because it makes it easy for them to upload - not so easy to remove for end

Any further thoughts as Clear Formatting in LW doesn't do it?

Thank you.

Writer seems to automatically place all that comets into tables and them I
have to cut, delete rows, etc. and spend a lot of time eliminating the
table formatting.

If I copy/paste special it removes graphics etc.

Is there anyway to inform Writer not to put content copied into table
format before pasting that content into Writer?

First of all, yes to the question: Check out the various Edit > Paste
Special (<Ctrl><Shft>V) options, beginning with Paste Unformatted Text
(<Alt><Ctrl><Shft>V), which will always give just a text string, without
table or other formatting. (However, note that in doing so, the
"unformatted text" will then adopt the formatting into which it is

Also note that, depending on the source context, Paste Special will offer
appropriate table-oriented paste options.
