text selection bug?

Sometimes, when I copy paste from a web site I cannot make a selection of 
the lines of the text I pasted using the keyboard keys "left alt+left 
shift+up or down arrows". However I can select it using the mouse, but not 
using the keyboard.

Is this a bug?

What browser are you pasting from? Onenote is more compatible with
internet explorer than with other browsers.

Does this happen only with text pasted from a website through Chrome?
How about text pasted from IE?

I doubt that the source might make a difference.
Couldn't it be a problem with marking text in general?

I do not work with the Beta yet, still the TP installed. There I almost
always stumble over a problem with marking text with the mouse. When I
begin marking at the beginning of text I can hardly ever stop the
marking at the end. Although having released the mouse button at the
proper place, the selections stops far earlier.
Meanwhile I have got used to start marking at the *end* dragging the
cursor to the left and upward. This work ;-)

Chrome has some glitches when it comes to exporting.  However, you
COULD use an intermediary:

1) Uninstall Chrome
2) Install the Chrome BETA version
3) Search Google for Chrome Extensions
4) Find the one for Evernote
5) Install the extension for Evernote
6) Then install the Evernote program (www.evernote.com) and set up an
account there.

Once you've done that, you can clip to Evernote, then later on you can
migrate that data over to OneNote.

Text to numbers
For years and years, I have been happily using Excel 97 to copy data from a website to my Excel spreadsheet by saving it as an Excel Workbook. I then manipulate the data (multiply, divide etc) without a problem. I have just installed Office 2000 Small Business, and when I try the same copy procedure, all the calculations return #VALUE. It appears that the "imported" data is text (?), with spaces. Not sure though. I realise I haven't explained this too well, but I'm hoping someone can interpret what I am trying to say, and assist.

Selecting Cells with Shift Key
When I am selecting cells in Excell, I use the shift key and the arrows on my keyboard. If I pause at all, the selection is lost when I continue with the selection. Why? Can anyone help me? If you have removed your finger from the shift key then Windows will think you are starting a new selection. Just be sure that you don't touch the arrows without the shift being held down.

Workaround for MSN Money synchronization bugs?
I'm trying to sync my accounts from Money 2003 to MSN Money. There are already some accounts on MSN Money from a previous installation I had, and I'd like to delete them so that the synchronization will work. There is no way to to this from what I can see, and from what I've read in numerous other posts over the years explaining the same problem. I thought I might be able to get Money to sync with the existing accounts. Apparently that is not an option, however, because it seems that there is a bug that makes the synchronization wizard believe that most of my Money accounts do n...

Bugs in documentation of CEdit::LineLength
