Sharing text from Word to a Metro app RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All.

    I would like to allow a user to do the following sequence of steps to share information with my Windows Store app:

    1. Open MS Word or some text editor from the desktop.

    2. Select some text

    3. Open the share charm.

    4. Share the selected text with my Windows Store share target app.

    So, far whenever I try to do this, the default behavior is for a screencapture bitmap file to be shared.

    Is there anyway to allow just the selected text to be shared from Word to the share target?
