I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


So, you do have MathType installed.  From what I'm reading, you can temporarily disable MathTyp's e and while completing the task that caused the error.  In this case, copying the image.

That all I'm seeing right now.  I wanted to check with you before looking at the MathType web site.

Waiting your reply.

yes mathtype is installed.

previously with mathtype installed and working the student has been able to copy and paste into word.

I think it might have to do with the content of the paste.  Have you tried to copy other items.

I can't find anything specific on the error.  Looks like it's time to contact the software company.  I'll checkout their support site.  It probably won't be until tomorrow.  

See you then.

Through trying different things and changing settings the only way to get around this is to disable the mathtype macro. as you correctly identified uucknaaa.
