The ISE 3.0 to copy script code as RTF is very nice. However, when we paste in WordPad, *only* RTF is offered. No copy some code from the immediate window, typically using a white font on a dark blue Background. Pasting this in WordPad pastes white font on white background. You must first paste into notepad, copy that, and then you can paste into WordPad.

It would be very nice if ISE could copy both RTF and unformatted text (and, besides that, we would very much welcome WordPad having a shortcut for "paste unformatted text|, but this is another story of course).

Greetings to the PS team - PS is great, and you do a fantastic job.

ISE is copying correctly as designed. If you paste the contents in Word you have the option to to plain text or RTF, it appears that it is Wordpad that does not offer the correct copy options.

This is not an ISE issue. It is a limitation in that WordPad does not have a "Paste as Text" option.
