Option to disable "Do you want to keep the last item you copied?" dialog box
It's slower to close the dialog box than it would be to just keep the last thing you copied on the clipboard and close the file. Highly irritating and it needs to be optional at the very least, or a way to set it once and "Do not show this dialog again" kind of thing.

Exteremely annoying. The file might take 3 nanoseconds longer to save, instead I take a couple of seconds to get annoyed, move the mouse and click!
Personal preference is let it save, if you want it then it's there if not so what.

Yeah, please disable this annoyance, which pops up every time I exit a Word document where something has been pasted in -- even a tiny picture or symbol.
Also, I have no idea what Uservoice is and strongly doubt that this feedback will actually reach anyone at Microsoft. But here's hoping.

This should definitely be an option that is by default set to OFF. Or remove the feature altogether. Back in the heady days of Windows 3.1, 95, 98, etc, with the corresponding version of office out at the same time, it took a short amount of time to close an office app! How can that be?!!
I don't need my hand holding when I close an app. If there are users out there that do, then perhaps during office installation there should be various prompts asking what options they want selected (with an option that says 'use defaults').
Closing Word, etc. and having to then respond to an extra question is irritating to say the least.

Various workaround have been proposed that aren't workarounds at all (hitting N, copying a single character before exit). These workarounds miss the point, which is that this is a completely unnecessary interruption in workflow for many users.... stopping to hit N or remembering to copy a space or similar before exit are also completely unnecessary interruptions to workflow. The only real fix is to (a) add the option to disable this in Options or (b) remove this "feature" from Word entirely or (c) set the copy size that triggers this warning to something five or ten times the current threshold.
