Inserting Text

Text can be copied and pasted into the body of your page or it can be inserted by editing the HTML code. Both are fairly straight forward, using TextFixer just keeps some basic formatting such as links, italics, and bolding.

Copying Text from Word

Step 1:

In your Word document, Select All and click the Clear Formatting from button. Note that this will strip all formatting including italics and bolding. If you do no want this to occur, use TextFixer (instructions for which can be found below).


Step 2:

Copy and Paste your text into the "Page Content 1" area of your page. Now you're all set to style your text as needed.

Preserving Some Formatting

TextFixer is a free online word converter tool will take the contents of a .doc or .docx file and convert the text into HTML code. How is it different from copying and pasting directly from Word? It attempts to preserve some formatting like bolding or italics in the conversion process.

Step 1:

Select All, and Copy and Paste your text into TextFixer's converter box.

Step 2:

Click Convert Word to HTML. You should now see your text as code with things such as <p> tags denoting paragraph breaks.

Step 3:

Select All, and Copy and Paste your text into the HTML code. If your page is currently empty, you can just Paste it all directly in. If your page already has pre-existing content you must find exactly where in the code your new text needs to sit before you can Paste it in.
