Hi,

When you paste text from OneNote into a cell in Smartsheet it appears as an image.  This is so annoying.  See attachment.

The only workaround is to paste the text into a web browser or word document, then copy/paste that back into Smartsheet cell.

This is affecting our use case somewhat, as often in project meetings our team take detailed notes in Onenote or transcribe via dictations meeting minutes.  From this they should just be able to quickly copy/paste this into Smartsheet for actions etc.

 

Anyone else having this problem and what have you tried?

    Hi Andree,

    Thanks for the reply, nope that doesn't work.  Both paste and paste special options are greyed out in SS.

  • I am also having the same problem. Any plain text that I copy from OneNote will ALWAYS be pasted as a photo into Smart Sheet. and there are no other paste options like paste as plain text, those options are grayed out.  I have no other issues with copy/paste to and from OneNote and any other aplication.

    Hi,

    Strange that it works in other apps.

    Please submit an Enhancement Request when you have a moment.

    Have a fantastic weekend!

  • Any update on this issue? I live in OneNote so it's very frustrating to have to constantly copy info from OneNote into a word doc before I can past it into Smartsheet. Thanks!
