Press File, save as text to get a notepad document.

Open Word, press file, open, look for all files, open the notepad document then save as Word or RTF file

When i view it as a text file, it works, but the text of the book is set up so that the notepad sees on just on line when there 3 different parts, its hard to explain, but it will do.

About the copy and paste tool i dont see it, but i found this opss.jpg so i dont think that will work

If you open the notepad doc in Word, save as RTF or Word doc, then press format, columns, then 3 columns, then OK, you might be lucky
