Problems pasting text copied from an
The WYSIWYG editor has trouble compiling text copied
from Microsoft Word.
This behavior is based on several factors:
- Microsoft Word uses HTML with proprietary arguments
that the WYSIWYG editor does not accept. The WYSIWYG editor works best
with a paragraph tag (
<p>) at the beginning of
text, and an closing tag (
</p>) at the end. If the
paragraphs you paste from Word don't begin and end with paragraph
tags, you'll see only the first line or two of the pasted text
- If you paste text from Notepad or another plain text editor, and
do not include opening and closing paragraph tags, you'll see only the
first line or two of the pasted text displayed.
The WYSIWYG editor behaves properly if you do the following:
- Paste text from an HTML page. The code you paste will most likely
contain the needed paragraph tags.
- If you type your text into the editor (i.e., instead of pasting),
the editor will automatically add the needed paragraph tags.
