If you've ever tried to copy and paste from a third party editor (like Word), you may have noticed that everything ends up looking funky. There's a reason for this. Word uses several hidden characters for formatting that you never see while typing or copying. But you definitely see the end result when you press save! Because of this, the Content Management software provides a tool for you to migrate your content from your editor to your website. Check out the toolbar of your HTML/Text Editor, and you'll see a paste options button. Your choices are:
We recommend using either the Paste from word, strip font or Paste as plain text. If you strip the font, the content will adopt the font that the rest of your site uses. This means everything still looks uniform. If you don’t mind going back in and reading some bolds, underlines, lists, or any of that, then Paste plain text is for you. This will make sure that just words, numbers and punctuation get pasted.
