Highlight what you want to copy. Then press control c. Then click on where you want to put the information and then click control v. That should copy your recipe for you. I think.

I warn you , as good as they are pasties are often very dry. Do make a gravy.

I suppose I could have done that too, but I like getting all the answers from the members here with all the other info and conversations it starts that it didn't even occur to me.

I appreciate the recipe site. Now if I can remember how to copy it onto a document so I can make it easier to read and print out for my notebook. Someone told me here so I have to go find the thread/site..

Thanks again.
If anyone is interested I did find one way to copy recipes that don't want to be copied.

I used the snippet tool to make a screen shot and pasted it into a document. I wasn't able to edit it, but I was able to enlarge it as a unit by pulling out the "handles", making it easier to read.

I used to live in iron-mining country in way northern Minnesota. Here is what I learned about pasties. . . .

Miners took pasties underground, because they were portable. Their wives made them with heavy crusts to keep them together, and with a thick edge to hold onto. Miners have dirty hands, so that last little bit of crust that was used as a handle was too dirty to eat. It wasn't wasted, however.

Down in the mines, there are little mischievous guys called tommyknockers--sorta like leprechauns. To keep the tommyknockers happy, miners tossed those dirty bits of crust over their shoulders for the tommyknockers to eat.

Woe betide the miner who didn't do that--he was sure to lose his tools, or his candle would blow out, leaving him in total darkness.

Oh--in my part of Minnesota, REAL pasties are made with cubed beef (or venison), some ground beef suet, and cubed potatoes and rutabaga (beggies). I don't remember any onions, but some infidels do put carrots in them.

A friend of mine is Cornish, and he says when his granny made them, she waited til the crust was just browned, cut an X in the top, and poured cream over the filling. Put them back in the oven and cook til the cream bubbles.

My Minnesota friends ate them with ketchup.

Pasty making is a popular fundraiser for churches--the ladies all gather and make hundreds of them, and people buy them by the dozen. They do freeze well.

I find them rather flavorless--I prefer a nice southern chicken pot pie with lots of gravy.

That's cause you didn't put onions or carrots in them. ;)

Hey, Joesfolk. It worked!! I never would have thought about that since I always copy/paste using the right click. I'll be smart about it this time and write it down

Thanks for the tip. Kayelle's idea of pasting into an email worked too. It just wouldn't do it using the right click to paste into either a Word or OOo document. Your way is the easiest. Thanks again.

I'm glad it worked. I've never heard of the right click thing.
