How can I copy, keeping the format of the document in Chrome?

Hello NVDA community,
I hope you are healthy. We should wear a mask on Espeak :) .

Chrome for the web is my favorite.

When I open any HTML document in Chrome, I want to copy the document to the clipboard, keeping the format properties of the document.
So headers, underlined words, lists…

This happens when I do Alt > Edit > Select all & Copy in Firefox.
But there is no menu called Edit in Chrome.
Ctrl+a & ctrl+c copy only plain text.

  • How can I copy, keeping the format of the document in Chrome?

"Select all and Copy" in Firefox is just an implementation of CTRL+A followed by CTRL+C.

I just used the "manual way" in Chrome, pasted the result into MS-Word, and all formatting is retained.

Not if browse mode is on. If you turn browse mode off, the formatting of the web page will be retained. Use NVDA space bar to turn off browse mode, then use control a. then turn browse mode on again with NVDA a.

from mack gene, concerning retaining original format when copying in chrome, did you mean, turn off browse mode with NVDA plus spacebar, control A to select all, control C to copy, then turn browse mode back on, thanks

I wrote the last step incorrectly, but that's what I meant. I meant NVDA Space to turn on browse mode again but I wrote NVDA a instead. I'm glad you caught the error. I check my messages before I send them but sometimes I don't catch something even when I read it again.

It work now. I’m puzzled that I couldn’t discover it.
Thanks a lot Gene

  1. NVDA+Spacebar
    • With HTML document open in Chrome
  2. CTRL+a
    • NVDA doesn’t say anything. We can understand that it’s true here. In the other selection, the number of characters selected is reported. If the text is short, all reading.
  3. ctrl+c
