Many times you may find that you need to add information to your wiki that is within a Microsoft Word document. Generally, doing a copy (CTRL+C) and paste (CTRL+V) from Word will result in unexpected formatting on your wiki page. Below is an example:
To avoid this from happening, follow these steps:
- With your mouse, click and drag to highlight your text in Word. If its the entire document press CTRL+A to select all.
- Press CTRL and your spacebar key. This will remove the Microsoft Office formatting.
- Press CTRL+C to copy.
- On your wiki page, place your mouse where you want the text, and paste using CTRL+V.
You have now pasted from Word without any formatting issues.
