Text Styles and Formatting Options

We strongly recommend not copy/pasting formatted text in from a Word or Office document.  There is no guarantee that the formatting will copy over correctly.

Instead, the preferred method is to first clear out any formatting a text has (copying into a plain text editor, such as Notepad++, and re-copying is the suggested method), paste it in the WYSIWYG, and apply any styles needed using the WYSIWYG editor.

Alternatively, you can use the Paste as Plain Text tool to remove all styles and formatting except paragraph returns.

If you accidentally copy in some formatting (bold, italics, underline), you can highlight the text (or select all) and use the Remove Format tool to remove the formatting.

Some examples of styles:

  • The editor is equipped with options for bold text and italicized text.
  • It can, as you can see, create bulleted lists.
  1. Numbered lists are also possible.

Left-aligned text,

and centered text are supported.

In fact, the WYSIWYG offers block quote for an indented paragraph.

Or horizontal lines.
