In Word, you need to Insert / Hyperlink, that will make the copied data a link. Same with Excel.

A link is just text unless it has the right attributes assigned.

I think you didn't understand my problem.

I'm copying block of text with some hyper links in text from some article in news web site. when I'm pasting it to office program like word or to any kind of text editor (like this seven forum's text editor for example), the links (the clickble text) is missing.

Ah, I see. I just tried it and it works for me with Office 2007 or pasting here in this forum as long as it's in rich text mode (the A/A box at top right of the message input area.

What happens if you boot to Safe Mode with Networking? Does it work there.

Also try creating a new user account, see if it happens there.

I think I found the reason for that. I have in my computer software of Pushbullet - en app that synchronize between phone and computer. I remove this software from my computer and all formatting back to work now. (for now - I hope that for good....)
