Avoid losing links when copy-pasting inside Google Docs

In this video tutorial we show you how to avoid losing your hyperlinks when you copy-paste content in Google Docs.

Written version:

Here we have a bunch of text, including hyperlinks, inside of Google Docs that we need to copy over to another document. The problem is that when we use the normal copy paste function we lose the links. They have turned into normal text and the addresses are gone.

Here’s the solution. Instead of using normal copy paste, go to edit, web clipboard and choose copy from there.

When we now go to our target document and select edit –> web clipboard, we can choose our copied text and paste it in as rich text or html. Now the link content is preserved correctly.
