I don't know what the equivalent of selecting "paste special" and then selecting "unformatted text" on a Mac is, but there has to be one. You might try pasting into a text editor (is that what they're called?) such as WordPad. In any case, I don't know what I did differently from the first time I tried it, but I just copied my first four pages of starred matches and pasted them into a Word document (just using "paste"). All the notes AND all the hyperlinks are there. (Actually all the notes appear TWICE) :) I wonder if Ancestry is getting ready to give us the ability to download our data to a file. It seems to be moving that way.
