Solved copy paste text=garbled formatting

Post by nilaynilay on August 19th 2011, 5:24 am

If i copy paste text from a word doc it looks fine in preview but gets all messed up when i post it. it gets a loads fo extra lines added between paras.

fro ex this is what i copy and paste
Fees Guide To Going robusto

Hi,

Its 8:30 in vegas right now, everyone is drunk/asleep and I am unfortunately sober/awake so I decided to do something productive.

I stumbled on to 2p2 playing 18 months ago playing .1/.25 FR on bodog. Today I play 5/10-25/50 on ftp and stars. So you know whats possible, now lets talk about whats required. If I knew what I knew now I could have expedited that process into easily under a year. The key is using your time efficently and becoming consumed with the game.

I am going to number these so they are easy to follow.

it looks exactly same in preview but looks like this when i send. note the extra spaces.

Word does not save it in the exact same format. Can't do anything about it.

Try pasting it in notepad first. Then, highlight everything in notepad and copy it from there. Then that's when you post it in your forums.

Is this problem solved? You seem to have thanked someone with no response. Wink

no its not solved. Brooks sol is only a temp workaround.

as i said i wasnt able to reproduce the issue on this forum which is also phpbb3

this means its not a real issue and should be solvable if someone wants to take a look.

Would you happen to be using the WYSIWYG editor?

Possibly, try disabling it and use the default text editor and then see if there are any problems. Wink

Note: to disable it, simply click on the a/A icon.

Glad I helped. To disable it permanently, please go to:

1. Administration Panel (advanced mode)
2. General Tab
3. Configuration (on the left, under Messages and e-mails)
4. Select 'Activate the WYSIWYG mode by default in the posts : No'
