Native Object Format

If available, this is the first format in the list box. You can edit data in this format using the original application, by double-clicking the object.

Formatted Text

A text format. This option offers the most suitable format if the data is pasted from another text output application, as the font and formatting attributes are reproduced accurately.

Unformatted Text

Another text format. This option pastes the text without retaining the formatting information.

Picture Format

The data is available in Picture format. You can later edit the object, by double-clicking on it and invoking the Microsoft MS Draw application.

Note:

This format is preferred over the Bitmap and the Device Independent Bitmap formats.

Device Independent Bitmap and Regular Bitmap formats

The data is available in bitmap formats. You can later edit the object, by double-clicking on it and invoking the Microsoft MS Draw application.

The editor converts these formats into the Picture format before calling the drawing application.
