What I tried to do is, select some text and drag and drop it to another MS Word 2003 document. The MS Word document was opened with MS Word 2003. It's really a pain to press control-c and click the MS field and press control-v again and again.


Not directly, as you found out. But if you have a lot of text fragments to copy to a local MS Word, the following workaround might help:

  1. Click File > Publish to the Web > Publish
  2. Open the published document in another tab. Drag and drop from that page.
  3. Click "Stop publishing".

Try pressing Ctrl (on Windows) while dragging.

    There is no try, as Yoda wisely said. Either you have an answer or you're just guessing -- in the latter case, expect downvotes. – user135384 Dec 11 '16 at 22:05
