2: Incomplete Clipboard Copying

The pop-up menu that appears next to the postal address blocks in the Address Book’s preview pane has an option for copying the name and address to the Clipboard (see Figure 2). However, it’s too literal. It copies the individual’s name and address, but it omits the company name, even if it’s a work address that’s selected. So when you paste the information from the Clipboard into its desired place, you must manually remember and enter the company name. Thanks a lot, Microsoft, for making a simple operation more complicated than necessary. Why isn’t Entourage smart enough to include the company name when copying a work address and to omit it when copying a home address?

Figure 2 Don’t forget the company name, because Entourage won’t put in on the Clipboard as it should.
