When I PowerPaste, the data comes out in pieces. Why is that?

Once upon a time, a user wrote:


Sometimes the text I copy have dashes or decimals in them and when I power paste it does in 2 parts. The same thing with currency. eg 1.50 will copy the "1" then the "50".
Is there a way to keep everything together , when I powerpaste  ?


This happens when the "Explode Into Fragments" option is turned on.  See the Edit menu.  This is the Exploding PowerPaste function, described here in the online help.

Exploding PowerPaste is great for when you want to break up data into little pieces and paste them.  But when you're not expecting it, then it certainly can be confusing.
