Text formatting details like table lines or borders are removed when selected text is encrypted with Clipboard's Encrypt or ‘Encrypt & Sign’ feature.
Storing the table formattings or alignment details is the function of an advance editor like Word, Excel or 'Outlook Email' editor, and if that Word file or Outlook email is encrypted, we will not lose the table lines / borders. The very reason we prefer advance editors like word or excel rather than notepad.
Same has notepad editor, Clipboard feature is introduced just to address plain text and not for information like table borders etc.
As we see this is by design and Clipboard is made just to address the text encryption needs, we advise users to store formatted text in an advance editor and encrypt that file with Encryption Software, in order to retain the formatting or table lines/border properties.
While using Outlook the best way is to paste the formatted text in the body of the email, and choose the Encrypt button to encrypt it, and not to use the Clipboard’s feature to encrypt the text and paste the encrypted text in the outlook message body.
Steps to reproduce the issue:
In any version of Encryption Desktop, select the below table (example) and hover to the lock icon of Encryption Desktop > Clipboard > Select ‘Encrypt’ > select ‘PGP Key’ to encrypt to.
Paste the resulting encrypted text in an editor.
Now decrypt this text using the same PGP key and result will be as below:
The table lines /borders are removed.
