Hi All

I'm hoping someone can help me with the following Word 2016 settings.

I want to be able to change the Smart cut and paste settings within Word 2016 via a group policy.  I cant see the settings I'm looking for within GP editor and also cant spot where the registry setting sit.

I've attached a screen shot of the setting I want to untick. Any ideas how I could change this.

Many thanks

In Windows registry, here are the values for Cut, Copy and Paste options for Word 2016. Have you checked that?

Path - HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Word\Options

"Pasting within the same document": PasteFormattingWithin
"Pasting between documents": PasteFormattingTwoDocumentsNoStyles
"Pasting between documents when style definitions conflict": PasteFormattingTwoDocumentsWithStyles
"Pasting from other programs": PasteFormattingOtherApp

For each option, the DWORD values are:

Keep Source Formatting: 0
Merge Formatting: 1
Keep Text Only: 2
Use Destination Styles: 3


Does this help?
