    cut & paste from Metalink

    Does anyone know how to cut and paste from Metalink properly?

    It always shows everything in a single line when pasted, annoying

    That's kind of expected. The paragraphs have no CRLF's inside them - it's up to your target application to format them. Word-wrap in notepad will do it, as will Word etc etc.

    This forum works the same.

    I usually copy and paste it to MS Word, then save it as text and open in a notepad....

    It works for me

    Looks like TAR's get CRLF's inserted to make short lines, and "articles" don't have them.

    Some e-mail systems do that too, so you end up with text that looks like:

    >This is a long line . . . . . that ends
    >here.

    I usually find that more of a pain than no CRLF's at all.
