Each time a copy from my rtf control and paste the contents anywhere else, I seem to get the RTF codes with it.

How do you simply copy the actual text without the codes?

did you tried to clear the content of the Clipboard:

first do this

clipboard.clear
then RichTextBox1.Text = ""

and then place your text into the rtf..

Not too sure whether this is what you want but it might give you some ideas...

The control has a couple of useful properties ...

TextRTF and Text

TextRTF contains the RTF codes, the Text doesn't.

I'm not sure how you are doing the copy, but if you put some code behind a menu/command button/..

Clipboard.SetText RichTextBox1.Text

This should help!?

Good luck!

I have curently the same problem. What I will do, is parsing the text with a function removing all the non ASCII characters.
