Hi, Does anybody know how to copy and paste a document exactly into an email body? Each time I do it, it loses the double spaces.
I am trying to send five pages of a manuscript (out of pages programme) and am having no luck

Thanks

    A mail is unable to reproduce a Pages document.

    You must pass the document as an attachment but before doing that, you must check that your correspondant is able to open a Pages document.

    Most of the time, the better soluce is to attach a PDF version of the document and a pure text version of the document.

    Thanks for the reply-

    Unfortunately the email is going to someone who wont accept attachments or PDF's -

    So does this mean there is no way I will be able to select the pages and paste them 'as they are' into the body of an email?

    Thanks

    Then I guess that falls on your recipient to allow/accept those.

    Have you looked into the Stationery section of Mail? Something there might work for what you want to do.

    A document build from a Mail stationary will have this one's layout, not the Pages one

    It would be the same if the doc was built in Word or every other app offering layout design features.

    Is there anything else special about your text other than the double-spacing?

    In Mail the text wont be exactly as in a word document. Mail doesn't have margins like a WP document.

    You should ask to accept an attachment. I have never had any problem with attachments, but then I use Mac.

    Hi,

    Why don't just paste the text as you have it. The recipient can copy and paste to a WP document and do the double spacing him/herself. If the recipient doesn't except attachments of any kind It is that person choice and have to accept that he/her can't get the perfect formatted text.

    I agree with fruhulda. Copy the content, paste it into your mail message and see what happens after receipt. The most likely reason that the recipient wants the content to be inline rather than attached is that he/she doesn't want to have to deal with anything other than plain text or RTF.
