    Hello all,

    I am looking at witting a couple of books for my library - What I am wondering though is whether there is an easy way to copy original stuff via a script, into an ingame book rather than having to have to retype it all.

    What I would like to be able to do is cut & paste the text into some sort of script and have it complete the blank books with the details.

    Is it possible??


    Thanks Mezzac

    CRTL-v will paste the clipboard (up to a few paragraphs at a time)
     
  3. You can copy from Word or Notepad then using Ctl/v can copy that into a game book. From there you can just use the Inscription skill to copy the book into another.

    assign a macro key to "Paste" - it's on the list near "Cast Spell"

    After many years in UO, I finally learned a way to copy books.
    A bit embarassing :blushing:.

    UO Wedding has a feature that copies scripts into a book as well and if I recall correctly, it works better than copy/paste.
