Well, I may not have had the specific answers you might want, but I spent a bit of time researching the issue you described.
I was all set to cut and paste from my lengthy word doc with the research results when my computer shut down.
I had already "cut" the doc but did not get to the paste portion.
When the computer recovered all I had was a blank word doc, and have not been able to recover the material that I had cut."
I've been so frustrated about it, I just had to share my heart ache!
Sorry my friend; I meant well.
