# Copy formula and paste it externally

I don't manage to copy a cell (or part of it) from a notebook and paste it somewhere else (example, in the internet search bar). I tried to change the style of the cell but the result didn't change.

Do I have to change something in my settings/preference of Mathematica?

N.B. I work on a Linux Ubuntu OS.

• @Melago. It doesn't solve. I discovered that my issue is not featured in all notebooks. In some of them the standard cut and paste (or equivalently the MelaGo's trick) works, while in others doesn't. – M. Marciani Aug 28 '19 at 9:16
• Before copy and paste convert the cell to Raw InputForm – Bob Hanlon Sep 26 '19 at 17:29

• Maybe converting to TeXForm and do a post-processing? – mgamer Jan 24 at 17:06
